The Shikoku Ken is a primitive hunting dog from the Japanese island of Shikoku. Bred to hunt deer and boar in the remote Shikoku mountains, this tenacious and agile dog thrives with plenty of activity. When indoors, the Shikoku displays the calm reserve characteristic of the Japanese breeds. They have a strong sense of loyalty and will form a close bond with their family.
