Doge, the famous meme dog, is a female Shiba Inu. Her name is Kabosu, and she’s from Japan.
In case you are wondering about Doge’s name—Kabosu is a type of Japanese citrus fruit.
Sato, a volunteer at the shelter where Kabosu was adopted from, said this about her name:
“Her face is very round, just like kabosu [fruit]. I thought the name was perfect, so I kept it.”
