This is our beautiful, loving, pull at your heart strings, loyal, howling, ornery, smart, looks like a red fox....Shiba Inu..Cayenne. She will be 7 years old on April 29th 2012. We have had her since 6 weeks old. Shiba's are a Japanese breed. They are the cats of the dog world. They are habitual preeners and also climb on furniture and are known to climb up trees. Cayenne spends her day laying on the back of the couch watching squirrels and napping. She howls for treats and company rather than barking and she has several "babies" that are assorted stuffed animals that she knows by name.
