Is the Boston Terrier / Shiba Inu Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Shibos, Shiboss

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.

The first generation Shibos is a cross between a pure Boston Terrier and a pure Shiba Inu, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This uncommon designer hybrid may be intended to moderate some of the challenges associated with the independent and sometimes aggressive Shiba Inu personality, but you are never guaranteed a certain personality with a mix. Get to know the dog in question as an individual.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the cross of the sturdy Boston Terrier with a small Spitz-type means that there is a range of possible "looks" you might end up with.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, owners should be prepared to be consistent but kind alphas who can socialize a potentially stubborn animal. If you're an impatient person, you might want to consider a different mix. Once properly trained, the Shibos could be an exceptionally loyal and protective pet.
