    Thought I would share.
    We made the decision to bring home another dog. We decided on a Thai Ridgeback. Her name is Gun Metal "Zin" We could not be happier, they both get along very well.

    That's a Kia? I have a hard time sometimes they look a lot like a Shiba. Those expressions he gives the puppy remind me of my Shiba.

    @T_Dog - Are you talking about Kenzo? He's a Kishu x Shikoku 50/50 cross. :) He's one of the pups Shigeru produced - and a cousin to my Kishu, Fionna.

    Cripsy is correct. Kenzo is the son of Baron (kishu) and Hime (shikoku).
    The thing I have noticed in the brief time, Kenzo was a much different pup. Kenzo has always been a real serious dog. Even as a pup he acted like an adult dog. Zin on the other hand is all puppy. I also have realized that he plays really hard with the puppy and needs constant reminders not to tear limbs off the puppy. (:) just kidding) I think this is semi normal for shikoku play; at least I think it is from what I read here.

    My Shikoku and my 2 Kishu are both pretty rough when they get comfortable with puppies, but they DO handicap somewhat (compared to when they play with one another)... so I think it's pretty typical. ;)

    Yeah that sounds like Shikoku behavior to me. That was my Shikoku's favorite game to play with my Kishu puppy... Grab a limb and SHAKE. My Kishu is finally getting big enough to get some payback.

    Zin is beautiful! I'm excited to see her develop. I love Thai Ridgebacks.

    I was out and about with the dogs. Kenzo would not stay still for me to get a good picture but I got a couple of good ones of Zin

    This is weird, but is Zin's breeder in CA? Did she have a black-coated brother? I'm part of a New Guinea Singing Dog group on Facebook and someone has posted that they got a black coated male puppy 9 or so weeks ago at 8-9 weeks, so I thought that might make them about the same age - and they look uncannily alike!

    I know of Zin's breeder. I saw her post Zin's picture on her feed. :-D

    This is her website:

    Yes that is Zin's brother. Her sister is in Alaska. Mah thai kennel is the kennel we got her from and they are great. I have been lucky with both Kenzo (Shigeru) and Zin's (Gina) breeders. Both I feel have good programs.
