So, what are some ways to welcome the popular Shiba Inu into your family? There are three ways to do that. Below is a summary of each method and explanation.
- Pick up from a pet shop
- Pick up directly from the breeder
- Greeted by conservation group
① Pick up from the pet shop
You can adopt a Shiba Inu from a puppy state at a pet store. You can actually hold them and ask the store staff how to raise them. I'm happy to be able to watch their growth from when they were puppies.
② Pick up directly from a breeder
You can adopt a Shiba Inu puppy directly from a breeder. The difference from pet stores is that you can see what kind of dog the mother dog is and what kind of environment she was raised in. It's also nice to see the connections and interaction with the sibling dogs.
③Welcome from a protection organization
You can adopt a Shiba Inu rescue dog from a rescue organization. What you need to consider is whether there are any shelters that take in Shiba Inu dogs, or whether you can adopt Shiba Inu dogs as puppies.
Due to timing issues, it is not always possible to adopt a Shiba Inu. However, it may be a good choice for people who want to add an adult Shiba Inu to their family, or who want to keep the cost of introducing an adult Shiba Inu to a minimum.
Also, as you spend time nurturing them through interviews and trials to slowly become a family, there is no doubt that your love will deepen.
These experiences may not be possible when you pick up a pet directly from a pet store or breeder.
