Shiba Inu

We just learned about the Shar Pei.

Another type of dog is the Shiba Inu.

The Shiba Inu is a type of dog that started out in Japan.
The word Inu means dog, and the word Shiba either means little or brushwood, which is a type of wood that whose leaves turn red like the dog's coat.
Sometimes the Shiba Inu is called the little brushwood dog.

The Shiba Inu are very clean dogs, and almost like a cat they will sometimes lick their fur clean!

They sometimes make a sound called the shiba scream, which is like a very high pitched scream.
They can make this sound if they are very happy, or if they don't like the way someone is petting them.
