I have a 4+ yr old Pesky Eskie and she's my baby..smile I'm considering getting a Shiba to keep her company. Just wondering by any chance if anyone here has that combination and how well, or not, it works out!

Thanks!!! (Dolly is a mini, spayed and right at 20 lbs)

I would get another eskie. I have an eskie who tends to get along more and hang out more with other eskies vs other breeds. i am not too familiar with the shiba inu breed but i have heard from a owner that they are kind of weird..this shiba in particular did odd things like followed shadows and stared at spots on the walls for hours. things like that. I just know that Eskies absolutly love other Eskies which is why i always bring my Eskie to see her mom and her sister and to make many eksie friends

Shibu Inu's are a Spitz breed same as Eskies but they are Japanese in origin. I've heard Shibus can be somewhat cat like -- very smart but a bit cold.


Pet me! :3

Hm, I don't think I've ever really met a shiba so I don't know what to tell you. Snowie gets along with everyone!! She always got along very well with Sassy(in my family) though.

I know this is an old post but Ive known a few Shiba Inus and think they are great! Ive known four of them and the owners of three of them had such great things to say and said they are super smart, very sweet, and very playful. I groomed all them and they did really well. Only one ( a four month old) was quite a handful but was getting ready to start his puppy training commands and was such a fun-loving dog...just needed some guidance but had a great owner who was working with him. He wasnt totally out of control or anything just a little more rambuctious (sp?)
