Rex was Kwontum-Leap's first Shiba, purchased in 1992 from O'Date, sired by the Japanese Import Fukurinmaru of Gunma Fukuda Kensha, fondly
known as "Toy", HOF Sire of 11 Champions out of 5 dams (6 litters)

Rex was initially shown in the Miscellaneous class prior to the Shiba Inu breed being accepted into the Non-Sporting Group.

Rex was pointed but was happiest playing at home, so that is mostly what he did!

He succumbed to oral carcinoma after a strong battle.

Rex is responsible for my learning to love the Shiba breed and will remain a wonderful memory of introduction to the true Shiba Inu.
