In 1987, our kennel was registered under the name:


After breeding Dogo Argentinos for a couple of years, we decided to
switch breeds towards the end of 1991,
The Dogo Argentinos we had at the time all stayed with us and
they all attained a ripe old age.

The last of them
Aguila Diosa del Cazadora Blanca passed away
at the age of almost fifteen on 22 July 2004.

Our first Shiba, the female Fukaya as Aras an Uachtarain came
into our lives on 6 March 1993, producing her first litter on 13 November 1995.

Since then, several imported Shibas and a couple of pups
we kept have joined the pack.

Today, the pack includes 23 Shibas (6 males and 17 females) and 1 Boerboel female.
They are all extremely well socialized and live with us in the house.
We do not keep them in cages.


Pups are born in our living room and reared among mature dogs.



Following the rules of the Dutch Akita Inu Association (NVAI) and Nippon Inu,
we only breed with parents that are tested and cleared for
Hip dysplasia, luxating patellae and eye defects.

From time to time, we breed a litter of Shibas in the colours
red, sesame and black & tan.

Every Shiba  has its own page.
