Hi everybody! Back after a hiatus to this site… I seem to always do this.
ANYWAYS. I recently adopted a little Shiba! My dream puppy for the past decade. He’s currently about 3 months old. I’ve had him since 9 weeks. He’s a good boy, tough to train like any spitz and always in trouble. But he’s learning!
His papers say he’s a red Shiba, but as he’s blowing out his puppy fuzz, he’s starting to look more seasame! All his new hair is black!
Anyone have any thoughts on what color he is? Is he or will he be considered seasame?
This is Ahri. 🙂
When he first came home
Adult fur growing in dark and cool patterns!
This one just because puppy.

kitty224: haha! My boyfriend does! Not many people get the reference It’s also kind of a Game of Thrones spin. Don’t know if you watch, but earlier in the series when Arya is traveling pretending to be a boy and goes by Ari. Threw the H in there because of league!

MissRedneck: omg in love!!!! I’ll have to come back to this and compare when he’s bigger! My vet said she thinks it’s so funny that every other dog breed has a typical puppy face but Shibas keep their baby face forever.
Too bad they’re such trouble makers!

Cute little guy you have there!
My Yoshi turned darker too when he lost his baby fuzz but turned out red after. He wasn’t quite as black as your pics but I did have the same worry about him turning out sesame instead. I don’t have any pics on my phone from his fur changing phase but here are a few from puppy stage to adult.

Heatherliak: Haha I knew it!! I do watch GOT… haven’t watched this week’s episode yet, just waiting for my fiance to get home from work to watch it haha. “Ahri” really suits a Shiba Inu, since she’s a 9 tailed fox, and Shiba’s are kind of fox-like. They are my favourite dog (doge!), but really hard to find in Australia (and super expensive) :(. I hope I’ll be as lucky as you one day and get a pup of my own!

Heatherliak: They can be a handful! Just be stern but loving in your training and he should be fine. 😉 I love that they always look like they are smiling and sometimes you just wonder what they are dreaming up to get you to smile!
