The smallest of the original six native Japanese spitz breeds, the ancient Shiba Inu was original bred for hunting small game in the mountains of Japan. Long the subject of interest from breed conservationists, the breed almost died out in World War II. Three distinct lines remained and from these, all Shiba Inu today descend.

Overall, the Shiba Inu is an overall healthy breed, and the longest living dog, who died at 26, was a Shiba Inu. The most common health problems in Shiba Inu seem to be ocular genetic disorders and allergies. Hip dysplasia is uncommon and appears before age two. Shiba Inu can have some typical small dog problems like luxating patella and dental issues.

DLA Haplotypes in the Breed

The Dog Leukocyte Antigen or DLA is the region in the canine genome that controls the immune system, among other things. There are three classes or areas, and the VGL Canine Diversity Test genotypes or records the two regions with the most variation. Because it is an area that mutates more rapidly than others, the method VGL uses is ideal for identifying specific combinations of DNA, and not merely showing whether a dog inherited two of the same sets of genetics from its parents or two different ones.

"Haplotype" is a generic name for a set of genes that are bound together and inherited as a set. The DLA Class I and Class II haplotypes are very tightly bound and represent about 2 million base pairs of DNA - a sizeable chunk. These two haplotypes together make an extended haplotype that is nearly always passed from parent to puppies as a pair. We therefore have two tables below showing both the combinations of DLA found in this breed and how often they appear, and also how often they appear individually.

Remember that frequency percentages do not show how many dogs carry them, but rather how many of these haplotypes exist in the breed as a whole. Every dog has two sets of DLA haplotypes, one inherited from dam, and one inherited from sire. These almost never recombine in new generations.
