I've been tossing the idea around in my head of getting a Shiba Inu and basically I want to know how they behave and if they'll do well in a warm climate. I've watched almost every video on YouTube about Shibas and I've read several articles about them and stuff but I'd rather hear it from an owner, how do Shibas behave and what's their personality like? And I live in Miami, where its super humid and the temperatures reach 100 degrees during the summer but its pretty mild the rest of the year and it can dip to around 30 degrees during the winter. I know it'll have no problem in the cold but would having a Shiba in Miami during the summer just be torture to it because of that thick coat? And exactly how stubborn and independent are they? I don't want it to be too much of a handful because while I do have plenty of time to devote to it, I've never owned a dog before and don't believe in giving them away so I don't want to be stuck with a spoiled, poorly behaved dog for 15 years. Oh and I have a big family, 2 sons (15 and 11) and two daughters (5 and 1), a cat, and 3 cockatiels, so would it get along well with the family and especially the cat? And I have a big enough backyard btw.Thanks for reading and sorry the post was so long!!!
