Tosa Inu pup 9 weeks old now and together with her sis Yuki, the newest members of my daughters family, I’m just a proud Grandma;)))
This Japanese breed’s name is Tosa Inu but is also called Tosa Ken. The Tosa was bred as a fighting dog in the middle of the 1800s. Today the Tosa is an excellent guardian.

Tosas are massive dogs with great variation in height and weight – 21 3/4-30 inches tall minimum and weigh 100-200 lbs. Ears are smallish and pendant. Eyes are almond-shaped and dark. The tail is long, thick at the base and tapers to a point. The coat is short, dense and lies flat against the body. Colors are red, black, combination of red and black, brindle, brown or black with red markings. Grooming requirement is occasional brushing to rid the coat of dead hair.
