Honolulu: Shiba Inu

The third most popular breed in Honolulu, the Shiba Inu is a canine of Japanese orgin. Originally a hunting dog, the Shiba has become a companion to many, thanks to this breed's active and affectionate nature. Despite its popularity in Honolulu, the breed isn't overly popular in other cities, coming in 19th nationally.
