I've unexpectedly come into news of a large number of Kishu Ken available for placement. There are currently 4 older puppies or adult dogs in the US in need of new homes, and a number of puppies in Japan I have been made aware of. Additionally, a friend has had a litter in Finland with one puppy potentially available, so I'm going to list them all out here for your convenience! I'm going to start with the dogs currently here in the USA.
These dogs are currently being housed at Hakuzan Kennel. In order to inquire about these Kishu, please contact Hakuzan Kennel directly either on Facebook or via email.
Female Dogs available
Male Dogs available
I've really become terrible at updating this news log, but Nami's litter was born on July 9th, late at night, and we welcomed 3 males and 1 female. I ended up with 1 sesame boy, 1 red boy, and 1 white boy, with a sesame female to end the batch. All pups have homes. They are nearly 4 weeks old. The white boy will stay in a local pet home, intact, to evaluate later as a potential stud. Still undecided on the other two boys, but I'm excited to see them develop, too. The little red boy is a carbon copy of his mom's personality. Kissy-to-the-core.
Bubba, "Daikokuten go" (formerly known as "Coyote" under his puppy name) from Fionna's litter is slated to leave on Friday, the 11th, for his new home in Finland. He is our trade for a new import from a mated litter over there, so if everything works out we'll be looking at a new boy at our kennel soon enough, too. Bubba has been growing up pretty nicely, and has really developed well. He's got a great expression, compared to his mom, and has great substance. I really like him. He's a sweet little dog. Not a person comes across him that doesn't want to take him home.
I'm also expecting a female Japanese import come September, so it'll be a year of new and exciting things coming up.
Speaking of new and exciting things, AKC paperwork is finally processing after a long time waiting.
I'll have to make a post about the AKC all of its own.
Litter 3 was confirmed! 5 puppies were seen on our ultrasound on June 1st, 2017. I'm very excited!
If you are looking for an active companion in your Kishu Ken, or looking for a sporting or conformation dog, please contact me via email or my contact form. This will be Nami's final litter so I am putting a heavy emphasis on wanting homes that will be active in sports, shows, or the community and will be amenable to keeping their dogs intact for future preservation.
If you have submitted a puppy application and I have not contacted you, please send me an email and I will catch up with you.
