** FYI - The webcam will be offline on the weekends but there are plenty of videos here on Ustream or on our SFShiba channel on YouTube of the pups for you to watch. **
We have created our own message board which allows you to chat with other puppy cam fans and "Shibaholics". Stop on by and say hello at: The Shiba Inu Puppy Cam Message Board. You’ll need to sign-up to Yuku in order to post on the message board but it’s really a fun place to chat with everyone else about our Shiba furballs.
We recommend that you do NOT get your puppies from a Pet Store as their pups generally come from puppy mill farms. The main focus of the Pet Store/Puppy Mill is on the bottom dollar (i.e., money) and they do not properly test the parents of the pups for potential genetic defects nor for temperament. You are likely to get a sick puppy or one that will require extensive and expensive visits to the vet over the course of their lifetime due to careless breeding. Do your research to locate reputable breeders in your area who health test their sires and dams prior to breeding a litter!
Do NOT buy puppies solely over the internet! You should be able to visit the breeder to view the conditions of the pups/dogs in their care. Visiting the breeder will also allow you a chance to bond with the pups before you decide whether or not they are a right fit for you. If the breeder doesn’t allow you to visit then beware… it’s likely a puppy mill.
To find a reputable breeder contact your local Shiba club or, if there are no clubs in your area, the National Shiba Club of America. Do note that most reputable breeders have a waiting list prior to a litter being born. Once you have located a breeder you like you should ask to be put onto their waiting list for a future litter.
Another option if looking for a pup/dog would be to consider fostering or adopting a rescue Shiba. Go to this link to view Shiba Rescue organizations throughout the country (or to make a donation):
The 2016 Shiba Inu Puppy Cam calendar is a super cute addition to any wall… plus the profits from your donation go to a great cause – Shiba Inu rescue organizations around the USA! The 2016 Shiba Inu Puppy Cam calendar boasts a collage of images from all of the litters (the A-Team through the F-Team) in addition to the couple's adult Shibas.
If you would like to place an order for a calendar, mousepad or greeting cards please go here:
We would like to personally thank each and every person who have been involved in the process of donating money, toys and blankets to Shiba Inu Rescue Resources of America (SIRRA) in our pups honor. It truly shows how loving and caring all of you really are and we’re happy to have been a part of making the lives of both people and dogs a better place.
In order to track which funds are coming in from our viewers you will need to make a note on your donation before you click the Send/Donate button. In the "Message" box, note that your donation is something to the effect of "To honor SFShiba family" or "In honor of the F-Team".
We still need to get an update on our latest numbers but, the last time we checked, the total amount raised since our first litter was born in 2008 has blown past $30,000... and is still going strong!
