dogs of Japan - 4 by oomizuao dogs of Japan - 4 by oomizuao
I'm actually not sure what breed this puppy was, but holy wow what a cutie! ^u^
Usually when I saw a dog in Japan, I asked the dog's owner if I could pet it. That way I got to meet a whole bunch of awesome dogs, and take lots of pictures of them :) There were two tiny dogs that were scared of me though, so I tried not to bother them too much. I just let them smell my hand, took a photo of them, and then didn't bother them anymore. I mostly asked to pet dogs that were of breeds that I am familiar with, like, breeds that I know are known to be nice and people friendly, happy dogs. Like the French Bulldog and the Bull Terrier that I met <3
This little puppy here was kind of quiet. Like, he just stood there, looking at us, let us pet him and seemed content with that. When the puppy's owner picked him up and let us hold him, he seemed just happy and content then too, but still with that calm, relaxed way of behaving. Cute little fella. <3

I have a stuffed animal of this dog and I must say, this still does look like my stuffed animal! I named him Buddy because he is my buddy but that's not the point. This dog.... is adorable.

It's a pomeranian! :-D (One that's been groomed.) I recognized it instantly because that's the only type of dog we've ever owned, and they look like this when we get them their summer fur-cuts.

It looks like a chow chow, especially with that fur type.

Likely a small spitz, or spitz mix. Pom mix or maybe a german or japanese spitz. who knows :) those two breeds still have the baby like face that poms have and are known for, but yea likely a recently shaved dog none the less, the coat looks damaged from being shaved.

My guess is a Pomeranian who has been shaved. You can tell easily by the face. Poms aren't only super small things I've seen some pretty big ones around my town :3

The pup by this picture looks as if it is some type of Spitz: Shiba Inu or Akita? Was the Tail curled? That is one way of telling if it of the Spitz family.

the tail was slightly curled, but not at all fluffy. His whole body was fluffy, but not the tail - which had long strands of fur on it, like a Papillon's tail, sort of. Maybe he was a mix breed? The ears and stuff make him look kinda Spitz-like, yeah, but I don't think he's an Akita or a Shiba Inu... o.o  My first guess was Pomeranian, but he was way too big to be one XD
such a mystery... :o

At least we can narrow do something he might be.
