Loki's mom says: After being married for about six months, my husband and I decided to get a puppy. After researching different breeds, we settled on a shiba inu as the perfect breed for us. We got Loki from a local breeder, and on St. Patrick's Day of 2007 he became part of our family. Loki is our very first "baby" and it's been a wonderful experience raising him so far. He's a funny and silly puppy. He can be pretty stubborn but is easily bribed with yummy treats. He'll play fetch only if he consistently gets a treat after bringing the toy/ball back to you. If you don't have a treat, he'll look at you as if to say, "You go get it, you threw it away!"
