Hanzo’s pedigree

Hanzo’s OFA results

Hanzo is co-owned with Caitlin & Toshiki Arita and lives in California. His puppy name was Renegade in honor of Arthur Morgan from Red Dead Redemption 2. A quote from the game named him “well aren’t you as tough as teak mountain man?” Plus my mentor has told me, Shiba shouldn’t be ‘beautiful’ or cute. They should look like rugged mountain men, a look true to the original purpose of this breed – a hunting dog.

  • AKC Farm Dog (FDC) title

Hanzo is bred by Alexis Amerosa of Boomlay Shiba and Leslie Anderson of LeSand/Akakiyosou Shiba
