If left ungroomed, their fur will become matted and dreadlock-like. They are easy to train and are very intellegent. So back in the days, they were used for hunting.
They are believed to live about 13-16 years.An ancient Japanese breed, the Shiba Inu is a little but well-muscled dog once employed as a hunter. Today, the spirited, good-natured Shiba is the most popular companion dog in Japan. In addition to the poodles they were also used for hunting purposes.
