They are so cute!
How does your shiba get along with the ferrets? My mother has a shiba inu-lab mix (teddy) that is 4 years old and he's caught and eaten more bunnies/squirrels on walks then my mom could care to count. He didnt get along with my ferrets (ie. he tried many times to eat them) when I was living with my mom.
He likes to watch them run and play, same as my ma's dog gunnar (german shepherd mix), he's never gone after any small animals... yet. It does make sense that your mothers Shiba mix would do that, shibas were first bred in Japan as sight hunters in the mountains, some still have that kill instinct.
