Shiba Inu Adoption
If you consider an adoption from a rescue or a breeder, do know that your new Japanese dog will be very affectionate to its own family members yet will stand its ground against strangers. Although they can tap your hand for a rub, the next second they can be nowhere to be found hoping you want to play with him.
A healthy Shiba Inu temperament will ask for lots of exercise. When you lock them up in a small space or room, all they will be thinking about is ways to escape! Make sure that when you keep this breed in your garden, being a hunting dog, they know how to dig under fences and will escape.
Also note that apart from barking, these dogs are well known for their typical behavior: "a scary kind of screaming". Just know that an enormous amount of training evolves around keeping this screaming at bay.
