Kiba and the rest of Team 8 are entered into the Chuunin Exam. He makes it to the preliminaries of the third round but loses to Uzumaki Naruto. Several weeks after the invasion of Leaf Village by Sound and Sand, Kiba accompanies Naruto, Neji, Chouji and Shikamaru on a mission to find and return Uchiha Sasuke to Leaf Village. During the mission, Kiba and Akamaru were separated from the group and had to face off against the brothers Ukon and Sakon. Heavily injured, Akamaru and Kiba had to retreat downstream to escape the pair. Unfortunately the Sound caught up to the Leaf. When they moved to attack, Kiba was protected by the puppets of Sand ninja Kankurou, who had been dispatched to help. He quickly finished off the brothers. Kiba and Akamaru made a full recovery, and Kiba promised to never left Akamaru get that hurt again.

Over the next few years Akamaru would grow into an adult dog and both he and his master would further their skills. Kiba would become a Chuunin and continue on missions. When Team 7 sought to track down Itachi and Sasuke, Kiba and his team went to assist. Unfortunately the mission was a failure and the Leaf returned to Konoha.
