Kishu Ken |Japan|

Kishu Ken |Japan|

The Kishu is a rare breed of Japanese Spitz that is seldom seen outside its homeland. The dogs have ancient roots and developed in the rugged, isolated mountains of Kishu, now the Wakayama Prefecture. They were and are used for hunting deer and wild boar and excel in this role. Originally Kishu Kens exhibited a range of coat colors, but hunters came to prefer pure white dogs because they were easy to spot in the forests. Gradually the dogs were bred with white as the choice color, but other solid colors are also allowed.
