Ina the Shiba Inu / Eskimo mix breed dog—"I got Ina when she was 12-weeks-old. She was a lively, smart and inquisitive puppy! A real handful. I hand signal trained her from the start and was very strick with her. To burn off her excess energy we started agility classes. We did agility for 4 years and then her trainer suggested therapy dog work. She's 8 years old now and we visit Alzheimer's and Dementia units, work she loves and the patients love her! She's an amazing dog! So gentle, sensitive and loving. Downside she is nervous and sometimes aloof but if you want to work for an amazing companion that will work for you... this is the dog mix you want."
