Featured Rescue - Dante the Shiba Inu

I realize today that my choice of words for the title of yesterday's post was poor. It should have been Don't Judge a Dog BY its Breed ... not "ON". Whoops. Ah well - we can't all be perfect. But no one corrected me which is odd ...

Anyway, today's Featured Rescue is a Shiba Inu. Dante is 3 years old and already looking for another home. The rescue describes Dante as "king of his castle and expects humans to follow suit". He is currently in the care of Shiba Rescue GTA

I told everyone to take it easy on you, being it was Wednesday and all.

Shiba Inu's and the other related breeds are great dogs. I think they require (extra) patience, and I feel an experienced handler.

By the way...what happened to ur "Guess the Breed?" I miss it!

Yeah, I noticed that, but I knew what you meant.
Don't judge a dog on it's breeds merits.
er sumthin.

Shiba Inus are such cool looking dogs.
Do they shed a lot? Seem to have a tremendous coat, don't they?

I'll picket with ya, GSC:)
We want "Guess the Breed!"
We want "Guess the Breed!"

Awww, he looks like such a sweetie pie! I like the fact that he sees himself as king of the house. How apt! ;)

Dante looks like a very nice dog! Fit for a king! I don't know very much about Shiba Inu's...why would they require extra patience?

On "on"... Actually, I just figured you were from somewhere in the South (they say weird stuff like that down here :o) Dante sure is a beautiful boy!

You guys are too kind. :)

Haven't done a GTB in a long time, you're right ... just got side tracked again. I'll put one together. See if I can find one that stumps you.

RE: Shiba Inus

From what I have found online, yes they shed a lot.

Shiba's require patience because they are a very independent breed with a lot of intellegence and tend to be quite ... tenacious.

They are amazing dogs and can teach a person a lot ... if the person is willing to sit back and learn.
