HELLO AND WELCOME
A little about ourselves........
We are Cheri Fellinger & Marcel Marckelbach the proud owners of Kawako Shiba Inus. We are the humble stewards of this wonderful breed with a small breeding program focusing on temperament, trainability, health & beauty. We are located between Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington. Our dogs are primarily our family pets but they are also beautiful, well trained show dogs. There's absolutely no reason why a dog can't be both. We have been training & showing dogs for nearly 40 years and we have the experience to produce well bred, properly raised and socialized puppies, youngsters and trained adult dogs. Most of all it is our pleasure to place our healthy, happy, quality Shiba puppies in the loving homes of the wonderful individuals and families we get to meet while pursuing our passion.
Something about the Shiba........
A well bred, well raised adult Shiba Inu is truly a thing of beauty and of course Shiba puppies are simply adorable. The Shiba can make a wonderful family dog or make a perfect companion for a single person. Shibas are very attractive dogs, especially to people who don't typically like small dogs. They are clean, quiet, easy to live with dogs that are just the right size for both a house dog and a traveling companion. However, there are some things about Shibas that most people don't know and/or fully understand that you must be aware of before purchasing a Shiba. These traits my be a deal breaker for your interest in the breed and need to be considered. Read more about that at our About Shibas page.
Purchasing a Shiba from us........
We have puppies regularly but we do not advertise them. We sell our puppies locally, in WA/OR and sometimes into CA and Vancouver, Canada. We will only place our puppies & dogs outside driving distance IF the owner has had a Shiba before. We do not sell puppies strictly via the Internet nor do we sell puppies without an in-person visit. We are extremely selective about who we place our puppies with as Shibas need and deserve owners who will commit to their special requirements and be a proponent of their health and well-being. They are NOT typical dogs, they are special. PLEASE BE PREPARED TO INTRODUCE YOURSELF IN YOUR FIRST CONTACT WITH ANY BREEDER.
