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
It's been a while since I came around and made an update. In early April, 2016, I welcomed another Kishu pup into my home - bred by Hakuzan Kennel. He's been a dream, but that, plus work and an impending move have been keeping me very busy lately.
But I do have some pictures of our new boy - a red-coated Kishu I'm really liking so far.
A HUGE congratulations to Hakuzan Kennel and their new mother, Shizuka! They recently broke the news that their pregnant sesame female just gave birth to four little sesame puppies! These are probably the first sesame Kishu Ken ever born outside of Japan. It's an amazing and exciting milestone for the breed and I'm sure everyone is looking forward to watching them grow.
