Dexter keeping a close eye on a days-old Shiba puppy
Welcome to SunoJo Kennels, we hope you find
this website helpful in learning more about Shiba Inu and
Japanese Chin. We are long-term, serious fanciers that have
been involved with purebred dogs over 40 years - our goal
in breeding dogs is to be respectful of their heritage;
progressive in the breeds' development; and particular in
placing our dogs with responsible families. Please visit
About to learn more about us.
We breed 2 to 3 litters of Shibas every year,
and very occassionally a litter of Chin. We select our breeding
stock and raise each puppy as a future champion - but we
can't keep every one, so pet/companion puppies of excellent
quality are available to approved pet homes.
Please consider carefully all aspects of adding
a dog to your life: the cost, exercise, training, time,
and the emotional investment. We hope you enjoy your visit,
and that you find information here that enhances your knowledge
of Shiba Inu and Japanese Chin.
