Surrendering your pet can be one of the most difficult decisions to make as a pet owner.
Shibas also go through a behavioral “growth spurt” and social changes during adolescence (5 months to 2 years of age). These mood & behavioral changes can become compounded if you do not spay or neuter your pet. Owners who do not get professional training of any kind during a dog’s puppyhood and adolescence are more likely to struggle. Regrettably, many dog owners throw in the towel before their dog reaches maturity and never know what a great dog they were destined to be.
