Let us introduce Barney

Japanese Shiba Inu, 12 years old

🌳 Countryside dog
🍷 Lives with adults only

My favourite thing about Barney is...

He has a lovely temperament, and is quite cuddly and affectionate. He loves his Shiba sister, and even his tabby ‘brother’. He can do a really good ‘sit’, and enjoys his food (plus an occasional treat!). We love him!

The biggest challenge with Barney is...

He has a loud bark! He is very strong and can pull quite hard on his lead, but that’s just him being keen. He looks very elegant and show-worthy, but we actually think that he has 7 feet because he trips over them all the time!

The most surprising thing about owning a Japanese Shiba Inu is...

How much fur they shed. Every. Single. Day. 24/7 and 365 days of the year!

What I wish I’d known about Japanese Shiba Inus is...

How many people want to know about them and want to fuss them! We often have to stop and explain about them, which we are happy to do, so please add extra time to all and every walk!
