My wife & I do volunteer work for a breed specific dog rescue, the Shiba Inu Rescue Association. Actually my wife does the work & I drive the car, offer words of encouragement and take photos. Yesterday we met up with Several Shibas & their owners. For those not familiar with this breed, they are a small Japanese dog, averaging 18 to 20 lbs although some are as small as 10 lbs & others 30 lbs or more. They are, genetically, still very close to wolves. Their coat color varies a bit but primarily, as seen below, either red, black & tan or creamy. We have over the years fostered and placed in new "forever homes" approx. 25 dogs. They are extremely intelligent and very "cat like" in their temperament.

Honestly, Number 3 and number 4 have my vote. I had a close relative of the Shibas, my brindle coated Akita named Tina. She was extremely smart and obedient. Very protective and loved attention. She was gentle when stroked and dangerous when provoked. Taking a portrait of her was very difficult. She was frightened by the big glass eye. Not I have a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Lucy. She too doesn't like a big glass eye staring at her. So I waited for her to lay down. At least an hour. I had a friend call her holding a treat. I didn't have much time and was only able to nail this shot.
