Japanese/Australian born in Kanagawa, Japan - Translator by trade, I hunt with, breed, and show the Nihon Ken.
Shikoku or Kai ken
Kishu!!!!! And it's ADORABLE! :-)
Head looks big. Was about to guess Hokkaido until I saw Dave's answer. :-)
The breed is a Cutie Ken, no? ;P
It is a cutie ken, and I guess the mystery will be revealed soon enough.
Oh! Is this Reiko/Nami, the yushoku Kishu?I just found this, but judging by the dates and Dave's answer...
Yes, that is Nami/Reiko as a pup.
