|Juneau is mainly a Canaan dog I beleive, but I also think that there may be some Shiba Inu in there...I can't be sure. But he matches every breed test I've taken for a Canaan, so this is what he's like.
Juneau is active, but is always happy to relax and watch a movie, and get his tummy scratched. He just runs and runs on the bike, at the beach, hikes, or any other time he is off leash.
Juneau is a total sweetheart to us, but is very wary of strangers. He barks all the time, and barks at any sign of an intruder...it could be someone in their backyard next door even. He just barks like...
Then he is usually done, but can go on and on with continual barking antics when someone comes over.
Juneau is good with other dogs, and he visits the dog park often. He is aggressive however towards big, bouncy, obnoxious dogs or puppies. He adores small dogs though, no matter how they act. Juneau also has a high prey drive, and although doesn't mind the family cat, he always tries to chase the neighborhood cats. He also has a good eye for squirrels .
Juneau's protective of his family towards intrudors, but never protective of toys, food, etc.
Juneau is very very smart...he knows a large amount of tricks, some being playing the piano, "stop drop and roll", wipe your face, jump through the hoop, and weave between my legs. He knows many more, but those are some good ones.
Juneau LOVES the outdoors, and he is always so happy when it is time to go outside. We think he may have lived on a ranch before we got him (he came in as a stray at the pound). He loves the heat, and he loves the freezing cold. He really likes snow...never gets tired of it . I think it is because Canaans were bred to tolerate extreme climates.
That's about it, besides his fear of thunder and fireworks, but I think a lot of dogs are scared of that. I hope this was helpful .
