+++ BEST IN A HOME WITH NO SMALL CHILDREN +++
I have an adult red Shiba Inu male. Me and my ex girlfriend got him when he was 8 weeks old. He is neutered and up to date on shots.
Like most Shiba he is stubborn, and gets anxiety at the vet and during baths. We took him to puppy training classes when he was young, so he has some training. He does like to be walked and gets along with people and other dogs well. He is and always has been the only pet in the house, so I don’t know if he would be ok living with another animal. He is very playful and does like to run around when he can. He is very independent, but likes attention on his terms.
Also he has bitten one of my ex girlfriends nieces. I don’t know the exact situation cause I wasn’t present. But my understanding was he was playing. She dropped something he went to grab it she tried to take it from him. And he bit her on the hand. There was a little blood, she got a band aid and was fine. She was 6-7 years old at the time.
I recently took him to the vet with a urinary problem. He was diagnosed with having a terrible problem with bladder crystals. They were surgically removed them the following day. And he has been much better since then. I will be taking him to get the stitches removed this week.
It pains me to give him up, I really love him. I found out recently I will have to travel for work. And sometimes I work more then 12 hours a day. And it really isn’t fair to him to be alone all the time. My current girlfriend, takes him out while I work. But if I’m gone for weeks or months at a time, she won’t be able to.
