This is a clever hybrid whose temperament depends on the parent breed. They are protective and loyal towards the family and reserved in affection if inherited traits from Shiba Inu or extremely jovial if they take after the Boston Terrier. The dog is friendly towards kids and better suits to older kids. It is important to socialize them early so they can easily become a friend of strangers and other pets. With patience and consistency, owners can overcome the stubborn nature of the dog during training. The more it takes after the Boston Terrier, the easier will be to train this dog.

These differences can predict how the Shibos will be in the future. Shiba Inu is an ancient Japanese breed that draws its name from brushwood’s hunting grounds or red foliage in autumn. The Boston terrier ranks high for a decade and one of the ten dogs recognized by the American kennel club.
