Shiba Inu & Japanese Chin

June 7, 2018

We have 1 red male puppy, born March 31, that is available to a pet home, due to a cancellation.

We also have puppies that have great potential as show/breeding dogs - they are available on co-ownerships. This means that the co-owner will have the puppy at home, and will enter shows to obtain the Canadian champion title, and SunoJo retains breeding rights. There are more details - but this arrangement is not suitable for first time dog owners or those who are unfamiliar with conformation shows. 

Sunojo puppy placement policies

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. Please note US regulations prohibit puppies under 4 months from entering the US, and also Air Canada does not accept puppies younger than 12 weeks.

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. However, we will pre-approve a home after receiving an Application Form and having an in-person visit.

Occassionally Available:

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.
