July 2016 – Shiba Inu Rescue Charity of the Month: Saving Shibas Inc
DO NOT Consider a Shiba If…
- you don’t have much experience and knowledge of dog psychology
- you do not understand what an “alpha” role is.
- you think being an alpha owner simply means being aggressive and rough
- you want a dog that is very affectionate and cuddly
- you want a dog that is very eager to please it’s owner
- you want a very playful, rambunctious type of dog
- you cannot spend enormous amounts of time with the pup during its first 6 months of life
- you don’t have an extremely secure outdoor perimeter (especially if the Shiba will be an outdoor Shiba)
” Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished “
Consider a Shiba If..
- You fully understand the breed and respect the importance of preserving breed standards
- You are interested in the betterment of the breed and will not breed Shiba Inu’s unless you have the knowledge and capacity to make contributions to the breed lineage.
- You are fully prepared and capable of managing all aspects of the rearing of a Shiba Inu
- You prefer calm, serious and independent dogs
