Since its inception, Shiba Inu and Akita run the canine corner of social media in Japan, with thousands of daily posts of adorable antics and hilarious mishaps to wade through. Sometimes it gets difficult to keep track of all the good boys and girls running around Japan, so we've put together a list of the goodest of good doggos to help you out whenever you need to take the edge off whatever stress you've been feeling in life.
