A little about ourselves........

We are Cheri Fellinger & Marcel Marckelbach the proud owners of Kawako Shiba Inus. We are stewards of this wonderful breed with a hobby breeding program focusing on temperament, health & beauty and we are located between Portland, Oregon and Seattle, WashingtonOur 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 30+ 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 a hobby we love.
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.  Read more about that at our About Shibas page.

Purchasing a Shiba from us........

We only have puppies occasionally and we do not sell puppies strictly via the internet nor do we sell or ship puppies without an in-person visit.  We are also very selective about who we place our puppies with as Shibas need and deserver owners who will commit to their special requirements.
