Is the Shiba Inu Mix right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

All mixed breeds are individuals but if you have a dog that appears to be mostly Shibu Inu, you're getting a lot of DNA from a small, active hunting dog with a desire to flush and hunt small game like birds. They're not the right choice for a household where you already enjoy a menagerie of small animals.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, but the Shibu Inu mix will tend to be a compact and surprisingly agile animal. This mix could be a true escape artist.

Behavior / temperament:
You can never predict a mixed breed's personality but it's best to be prepared for a challenge, since the Shibu Inu can be quite independent. Get to know the dog first if it's a rescue, since this mix is unlikely to be right for the first-time dog owner.
