Our Shikoku kennel is a small but intimate shelter.
We have raised our beautiful, award-winning dog Natsumi in a loving and homely environment with children.
The kennel is situated in Meppen, is a very beautiful village close
to the woods, in the province of Drenthe, the Netherlands.
The name of our kennel is Natsumisou. We have been registered at the Supervisory Board (Federation Dutch kennels) since September 2016 after approval from the 'Fédération Cynologique Internationale' (FCI) .
In January 2017, we are registered as a candidate breeder at Nippon Inu, the Shikoku breed association.
Very proud of Natsumi who brought 3 pups into the world on her own on June, 20th. There’s nothing quite so sweet, as tiny little babydog feet. Two males and one female.
So happy, Natsumi has had her ultrasound and confirmed that she is pregnant! We expect the puppies at the end of June.
With the help of Drs. Frederik Haaksema, working at the Animal Clinic Arts & Animal in Klijndijk, we hope to establish the pregnancy by means of an ultrasound scan.
Natsumi has been mated by ShinRyu of Shikoku House by
Doitsu Kanoto Sou. A great but also an unique combination in
the field of DNA.
ShinRyu: HD-A excellent / ED-A excellent / EVCO both eyes normal Natsumi: HD-A / Patella Grade 0 / 1 eye normal and 1 eye PPM
They both obtained titles at National - as International Championships.
Natsumi is in heat. We will start on the 9th day with blood collection for progesterone determination.

Natsumi has had her echo and this shows that she is not pregnant. Despite there are no puppies to come, now we have gained much experience and look forward to her next estrous cycle.
