|I can think of at least 2 very reputable Shiba breeders who, if you got a dog from them, I wouldn't worry about adding another dog later. My own opinion is that breeder is everything when you get a Shiba (not that this isn't true for other breeds but I just tend to think you can get a far more manageable dog from some breeders).
As far as Corgis and play style, it has been my impression from other Shiba owners that their play styles are very compatible as both tend to be rough, energetic players. Bullying is something I would worry about, though. My dog loves other dogs but is a bit of a bully (king of the roost at daycare), but that said, he can take it, at least to some extent, as well as dish it. I think this is the sort of thing that can be just fine as long as you're aware of it and manage it from the beginning.
For myself, I would not worry about adding another dog to my household. He loves all other dogs. I would be more concerned with making sure the other dog was as interested in playing as he is, were I to look at adding another. That said, he is a little less than a year and a half old and could still become more intolerant of other dogs up to age two.
