A life without Hatchi by my side, is not a life I am interested not in. I have been so blessed to call him my partner in crime for five years now. If you are considering adopting a Shiba Inu, I recommend it completely. Of course, you need to be certain that a Shiba will be the right fit for your family. They are loyal bundles of joy, but tend to be aloof, and stubborn-headed. They require a lot of training and socializing when they are young and cannot be given slack. When trained properly, you can look forward to a life time of memories and joy. There is never a dull moment in a Shiba’s company.
