Shiba Inu & Japanese Chin

July 16, 2019

No puppies or adults available at this time.

Coming Up 

#1  -  Due end of July.  Sire is our Am/Can Ch. SunoJo's How We Say Zee (Zed) and the dam is GrCh SunoJo's Little Red Pill (Trinity). 

#2  -  Due mid-September. Sire is our Ch. SunoJo's Eddie Zedder (Eddie) and the dam is Ch. SunoJo's Rowdy In A Red Dress (Reddi). Yes, I know, Eddie & Reddi don't allow me to combine their names!

We have several show homes waiting for these pups, so until they are actually born and we know how many and what gender, we will not be accepting applications for them. 

Sunojo puppy placement

Age:  Puppies do not leave their mothers until at least 8 weeks of age.

Shipping: We do NOT ship - it is too stressful, too expensive, and too difficult to provide support for new owners. 

Price:  $2500 CDN on a spay/neuter contract (click here to view ​Sample Contract). INCLUDES the CKC certificate of registration, sales tax, veterinary record, current vaccinations & wormings, SunoJo puppy care manual, starter package (food, blanket, collar, toy), 30 day full return, 2 year limited warranty on genetic health (hips, knees, heart & eyes) and lifetime support.

Spay/Neuter: Unless you are purchasing a show potential puppy, all dogs are on a non-breeding contract, which means they are to be spayed/neutered by 1 year of age. Any dogs we have available that are old enough (over 10 months), will be spayed or neutered prior to leaving us.

Reservation/Wait List: We do not maintain a Waiting List or take deposits until puppies are actually born - it can be a long time until a puppy is available and we do not feel it is fair to keep someone waiting, and waiting. When a Shiba Inu is available, this website will be updated.

Sample Contract


As preservation breeders, the purpose behind every litter is to produce the next generation of quality Shiba Inu. We have very strict criteria for breeding stock, and sometimes puppies don't mature to meet those criteria. This can be anything from height, to colour, to eye shape, to show attitude (some dogs just don't like the noise and commotion of a dog show). While this is not a common occurrence, it does happen - these dogs will be spayed/neutered and available as companions.

We show our dogs 'for fun' as puppies, and more seriously after 2 years of age. At 2 years, their health screenings are completed and we can evaluate the total dog to determine if they should be bred. If not, we look for 'retirement' homes - so you see that age really doesn't have much to do with it! The dogs that are used in our breeding program are generally 2 to 4 years of age, and after giving us the next generation of SunoJo Shiba Inu, they go on to be someone's beloved couch dog.
