My boyfriend and I are deciding on which kind of dog to get. I've decided on the Shibu Inu and we would just like to know that this dog is a good breed for just starting a home?

I got my Shiba when my boyfriend and I got our first place. :) She's fit in perfectly, though she can be really stubborn and likes to do what she wants. They're extremely smart and loving and so much fun to be around, especially if you guys don't have children and have time to give him/her a lot of attention.

My Shiba was a rescue dog. We contacted the previous owner and they did NOT want her back. It seems they had a new baby and GIA got very jealous and aggressive toward the infant. So they gave her to a relative who did not have any better time of it. My Shiba was the Queen of all Shibas. Wonderful dog but not socialized. If a Shiba is your choice, early training and socialization and lots of positive reinforcement is essential. My shiba was the most loyal and protective of any pet ever which became its own problem. She snapped at a child and I was forced to put her down. I still miss her and it has been 8 years. Shibas are the best dogs ever, but train early and often. Good Luck.
