    I searched but could only find little bits of info on some of these breeds, so i dont think there is already a post like this(if there is please direct me to it)
    what is the difference between:
    a) nihon ken
    b) shikoku
    c)akita inu
    d) kai inu
    e) kisha inu
    f) hokkaido inu
    g) shiba inu
    I have heard of these breeds, and they all seem to LOOK pretty similar. Can someone help me out on what the difference is? Size? temperment? life span? health? Im just curious about how they are alike/different from my little shiba inu pup.
    THANKS for any help : )

  • There's also the Korean Jindo too, I've seen a few of them around. I want a Shikoku so bad, there's a breeder here in PA I believe. One day I want to make the trip to visit and get on his list tho I understand it might take years to actually get one.
