    Spiff! At first I didn't realize that the Hokka was biting the bear. *fail on my part* Unless it isn't, in which case that would be a double fail for me. Anyway, thank you for sharing the Hokkaido pic!

    Bear looks kinda small maybe a young bear? hard to tell since it's so close up.

    Looks neat, but I'd be scared if my dog did that. lol

    @Krisz She's a great looking pup! I'm glad to see them outside of Japan. I'm still debating between JA and Hokkaido for Ren's future little brother. Love the coloration that Yabu had :) I too would be eventually interested in one if you do breed a different color. I just see too many whites having skin allergies in the southern United States.

    Thank you!!!

    @cezieg : " too many whites having skin allergies" Hokkaido is a healthy breed, I don't know any problem...
    I bought Seta from a very famous breeder, he has been started the Hokka breeding in 1978!
    He has many whites and as I see in Hokkaido are many whites in the show ring.

    I wrore in this forum:

    @Krisz I'm not saying it's your dogs in particular of course!

    Florida is a very harsh environment with a lot of plants and insects that cause allergies, even in dogs that don't have allergy problems as a breed. So I think it may just be something with dogs with light fur that causes them to be more sensitive to things down here. It's just something I noticed after working in veterinary clinics.

    I've also just been wanting a black & tan colored dog since I already had a red Shiba :)

    @cezieg OK, this is interesting info about the white dogs!

    @ABetty: yes, Yabu was my dog, but she has not offspring at my kennel, because I focused the shiba breeding...
    I had a decide: I sold Yabu to my friend and now all European Hokkaido breeders use Yabu's kids + grandkids :-)

    But I love Hokkaido always... so I bought Seta :-)))

    @whobitme I also have a hard time deciding between white, brindle and even red!! For some reason, the urajiro is REALLY cute to me... which is why I love the red guys so much... but white is beautiful for its simplicity and brindle is just stunning because it's brindle. :)

    Our litter was born yesterday! There were 4 females and 1 male and we will go to pick out the best female in 3-weeks. They are all white pups. As for the coloring in Japan, white is most popular followed by red, then brindle, black. I think this is partly because people want a dog that doesn't just look like a bigger Shiba and also something to do with bloodlines. Having a dog that is part of the Chitose bloodline is kind of a big deal and the dogs are white. Our puppy will come from this line.
    PS: there is also wolf grey coloring but it is very rare. I was at the all Japan show and didn't see one.

    @jeffnkazuko I said this is in a different thread, but I'll say it again (because it is so exciting): Congratulations! And that's pretty interesting about the Chitose bloodline. Is there any particular reason why the Chitose bloodline is so important?

    @thegela Part of the problem is that Hokkas are awesome in every color. I really do like all the types.

    Hokkaido has six colors:
    Red and white are the most common.

    Then is black and tan.

    Brindle and sesame

  • I am not too sure those last two dogs would fit the breed standard. Definitely not an all black dog. Whites are becoming more prevalent recently and from what I saw whites and reds were the dogs winning at the shows.
    They are all great dogs thought and really do have unique personalities.

    Posts: 2993
    The sesame is interesting.

    All black dog is neat I'm fan of darker colors.

    I really love the B&T Hokkaido the most the ones I seen in pictures I can really tell difference between them and my B&T shiba their face is a bit different or at least to me it is. Athletic and stuff.

    Though I notice Saya has some muscle on her from all her walks and running around.

    I hope the other colors of Hokkaido stays around I love the white don't get me wrong, but I prefer B&T, brindle, and red more.

    All this Hokkaido talk is making me want to get one too!
    White is my favourite and the agouti is my 2nd favourite.

    @whobitme - is says here on Nihon Ken blog that the Chitose is the most famous and has the highest quality. I also read somewhere else that it is the oldest too.

    @Kitsusi Thanks for the pictures! Those are awesome. :) Although when I said "every color" about the Hokkaido I only meant the colors the Hokkaido actually come in. I didn't mean to imply that there were more colors. Sorry about that.

    @MapleTwinkie Oh, yeah! Man, it's been a while since I read that and I obviously forgot about it. I remembered the word Chitose, but I forgot the rest of it. Thanks for re-pointing that out to me. Sometimes I wish my brain functioned properly more often, hahaha.

    @jeffnkazuko Shigeru's blog lists these colors: Sesame (red fawn hairs with black tips), brindle, red, black, black and tan or white.

    The UKC standard: Sesame (red fawn hairs with black tips), brindle, red, black, black and tan or white.

    I'm not sure what colors are acceptable in FCI, though I figure it must be pretty similar.

    @jeff: Seta is bigger a little bit than my shiba male (he is 40 cm) so I think Seta around 42-43 cm.
    Weighs: she was 11 kg at 4 months of age, so she is around 15 kg now - maybe. She has very strong bones.

    Yay, congrats! That is great news, and he looks great, as does beautiful Seta!

    Maru does look a lot like Yume.

    @Krisz I heard/read of solid black in the Japanese breeds but haven't seen one yet! I'd be really interested in seeing them or learning more about it. :)
