What will my Shiba Inu look like full grown?

Shiba Inus can go through coat changes throughout their entire life. Typically, they are born darker than what they will be in their adult coat, with varying stages in between puppyhood and seniorhood. It is sometimes difficult to determine just exactly what a puppy will look like as an adult, but we do our best to make an educated guess, then, sit back and watch the puppy bloom into his beautiful adult coat.

Below are a few examples of coat changes to give you an idea of how it works.
