Many people first became familiar with the Shiba Inu from that 'Doge' meme that was everywhere for a while (very Shiba, much soft. Wow), but these lovable, eccentric Spitz dogs are actually a very old breed, that has developed quite independently from other common breeds of today.

It is this that makes them seem so 'weird.' They are incredibly intelligent dogs that like to keep themselves fastidiously clean, and they have also learned to use their paws much more often than other breeds. In many ways they act more like a cat than a dog! This goes for their personality too, while they like having humans around, they don't necessarily want or need your attention. You have gotta earn the respect of a Shiba!

Sounds like the perfect pet for someone who can't decide between a cat and a dog, right? Just make sure you keep your Shiba stimulated and well exercised, they can become quite destructive when bored. So while they are adorably cute, bright and funny, Shibas are not for everyone, be sure you know what you are doing before you get one!

In the meantime, we here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of Shiba Inus doing what they do best, being hilariously funny. Scroll down to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!
