This is great news! It's about time America is taking a look at this issue. In Sweden Pit bulls were banned in the 90's until the government there realized it was indeed an owner problem and not a dog problem, and in France they don't ban any breed but have muzzle and leash laws which is a much better option. If anyone is interested we wrote an article about legislation in the US and other countries on our blog: http://www.puppyset.com/top-10-dog-friendly-countries/

Hmm... He looks like a Corgi- Shih-tzu mix to me but even then not quite so. He's adorable! Such a goodlooking little guy smile

Wow very interesting! I agree with the person who suggested filming. Dogs are very in tune with people's breathing and heart rates which makes them very hypersensitive to even the tiniest bit of arousal from your nervous system, so if your eye twitches or heart skips a beat, your dog will know. Try filming and keep us posted!

I'm on the fence on this one, let me explain: First of all, there are tasers that can be used but most of the time it seems as though they are not being used enough. I think a taser with obviously less voltage than the ones used on humans should be the first response to an aggressive dog. However, I think once the dog attacks someone, especially seriously, they are usually put down, so keeping it alive only until it has to be put down may not be the right answer either. Good post!

Shiba Inu's were originally bred to be hunters so they typically like to spend a lot of time outdoors. Have you considered a Clumber Spaniel or English Mastiff? Although they are bigger, they are quiet and don't need much space during the day. Or if you prefer a smaller dog, I suggest looking into the English Toy Spaniel. We wrote about the best condo dogs on our blog, here: http://www.puppyset.com/best-dogs-for-condo-living/

Thanks and good luck!
