I just wanted to drop a note about our Shiba, Mika (formerly Kara, Snickers and Hercules puppy, born February 2013). She is a dream dog in every way. She is beautiful with fur as soft as velvet and has been very healthy. She has the most wonderful disposition I could imagine. Mika loves people and other dogs and is calm and tolerant no matter what is going on. Mika was a dream to train, too. She hasn’t had an accident in the house since her second week home and was so well behaved that we were able to leave her out of her crate when she was only 4 months old. She has no destructive behaviors and shows no aggression ever. She is playful, funny, a little stubborn, and as sweet as can be.
