Kabosu, the Shiba Inu dog who inspired Dogecoin and was the face of the “doge” meme, is in “serious” health condition, according to her owner.
Atsuko Sato, a Japanese kindergarten teacher and Kabosu’s owner, said in a Dec. 26 Instagram post that the rescue dog was in a “dangerous” state, but assured her followers that the dog will be “absolutely fine” and is “getting power from all over the world” from supporters.
In her recent tweet, she said that her beloved pet was in a lot of pain. She added, “Unfortunately, Kabosu doesn’t look so well… I’m sure she’s going to be okay. Definitely okay. She’s receiving power from all over the world! Thank you so much everyone!”

Who is Kabosu? The beloved Shina Inu Dog
On February 13th, 2010, Japanese kindergarten teacher Atsuko Sato posted several pictures of Kabosu, her rescue Shiba Inu dog, on her personal blog. Among the images, there was one particular shot of Kabosu sitting on a couch, looking sideways at the camera with arched eyebrows.
This shot of Kobosu quickly became a meme. The meme’s popularity prompted Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer to create what is widely regarded as the first “meme coin,” Dogecoin, in 2013, as a joke.
They launched “Dogecoin” in the Bitcoin Talk Forum, in a thread titled “Dogecoin – very currency – many coin – wow – v1.1 Released,” as a satire of the Bitcoin bubble.
