1 yr male Shiba Inu – NO KIDS:
Dagen was surrendered by his family as they were preparing for a new baby and felt they could not handle him. Dagen was guilty of being a normal, unruly Shiba puppy; digging, and chewing too much, bolting, being noisy in crate, and playing to rough with their daughter. He is not only immature, but also lacks confidence and can be fearful with strangers and in new environments. He needed a foster experienced with the breed, and with the time and patience to focus on his training and socialization. For now, he needs consistency and stability, while his confidence grows.
Dagen is on the larger side for a Shiba at about 30 lbs. He likes other dogs, depending on the dog. He has shown some guarding tendencies with special treats/bones. He has not been tested with cats. He is house trained, but would need to be retrained to love his crate.
Dagen needs more time in his foster home before he is ready for his forever home, so stay tuned!
