Hi there, Izzy here!I''m a 3 year old male shiba inu looking for a new home! Shiba Inus originated in Japan as hunting dogs, and are known for their 'cat-like' behaviors. We clean ourselves like cats (lots of licks!) and are naturally fastidious, which means we''re one of the easier breeds to housetrain. However, we aren''t highly food motivated (I only eat when I''m hungry!) so it may take a bit longer to learn new tricks. I''m an independent type, and I don''t really like being handled. I also am not a huge fan of other dogs. For these reasons, I should go to a home with no other pets or children. But don''t worry, I love being pet and played with! If you were wondering about my skin, that''s no big deal either- I just had a bad case of fleas before I got here! That was no fun, so please keep me on a monthly flea preventative from now on!Overall, I''m a really fun little guy! If you throw my toys high up in the air, I love jumping up to catch them! I''ve got lots of energy and am a great walking partner- I can''t wait for us to explore the neighborhood together! And just wait until you see me bounding through the snow! Come visit with me today and take me home! I deserve another chance!
