Franklin is a two-year old adult Shiba Inu who needs a home without kids or other dogs. He will need a strong-willed, experienced, and committed individual who can support him and train him against his fear-aggression. Franklin can be possessive of food and may bite, however will usually drop possessed items when asked verbally. He can be defensive of his space when sleeping as well. Franklin ('Frankie'), like most fear-aggressive dogs, makes a great companion when his triggers are not present. To make Frankie into a great best friend, his owner needs to have consistent calm-dominant behavior so Frankie does not feel the need to assume a dominant role, wherein his anxiety would be exacerbated as well as his aggressive challenges.
