Natsu is a pure-bred Shiba Inu, who is roughly 2 years old.
His name means summer in Japanese because Shiba's are originally from Japan.
He is up to date on his shots and loves to play.
I had bought him for my grandmother/sister to take care of and have company while I was away for college, but they both moved out the home and Natsu has been lonely for monthes. Shiba's need a lot of exercise and he has thrown on a few lbs (a lot of weight) since they left. He's a smart dog, but he is very territorial about his food - I have not had the time at home to discipline him for this, but aside from his food, he's a great Shiba. I just want him to go to an owner who will have time to walk the poor guy. He's my best friend and he will be an asset to your family!
