Shigeru Kato, who is the driving force behind 4 of my 5 Kishu Ken imports (he helped secure and export Nami, Toutarou, and Reiko - and he did the same for Jason's parents in Finland), a huge asset to the Nihon Ken community, and combating misinformation on these breeds, has taken up another project to develop a Kishu and Kai Ken pedigree database using the same system he has for the Shikoku Ken.
This database is extremely useful in searching common ancestors and his location, skill, labor, and connections may help him enter more dogs than we could hope to do on our limited pedigree generations.
Please read about the project, and if you have wanted to help the Kishu Ken in the past, but didn't know how, consider donating even a dollar or three to Shigeru's hard work.
Going forward, because I think funding this project and seeing it done will help all Kishu Ken breeders and owners, I will accept an equivalent donation to this project for a portion of a holding fee for my wait list.
