*What Vancouver breeder were you working with??? Let me know, there are a few dodgy breeders out here masquerading as good breeders (not a typical BYB but dodgy nonetheless). My breeder is out here too in Vancouver, I can't recommend them enough. Their lives revolve around producing top quality Shibas. Long wait list, but well worth it. I'm not sure if she is willing to send Shibas without in-person interview.
