sweetboyWhen deciding on the breed of dog I wanted in my adult life, I knew one requirement was a longer life expectancy than the larger breeds I grew up with. Shiba Inus are a healthy breed and have an average age expectancy of 12 – 15 years. Tag was a wonderful old man. I had to say goodbye to him just 2 days short of his 17th birthday. I decided it didn’t matter; he was 17.

I will be filling this page with information about living with a geriatric Shiba Inu.
