Hey you :)
I’m from northern-Norway, but live in Budapest, Hungary.
I LOVE it! Watched it as a kid without knowing about the japanese breeds, so when I saw someone posted about it on an akita forum I thought “hold on, Tanuki is a torage akita!” and had to rewatch the show.
I know many people call their tigers Gin, and I guess I would have too if I had known about it then. So I am kinda glad I didn’t, else Tanuki would not have been Tanuki :p
Hey, thanks for your question :) Kuma is the most relaxed dog I’ve ever met. He is still very shiba though, can’t always have him off leash, and he is not eager to please.. but he is my heartdog and I am his favorite human <3 Most shibas I’ve met are awesome, so if you’re wanting to get one be sure to at least meet the mother of the pups as they’re likely to become like her in temerament (e.g. if she is yappy or nervous - back off!)
