It is great to live with animals. In my elderly home we grew up
with animals. When we moved from the city to the country side we got a dog from the animal shelter. Pluim which was her name was a bastard Samoyed. She was a wonderful dog but with a past. After happily five years she past away, because of cancer.
Some time later we got Kim a pure-bred. My parents breed two nests. From the first nest we kept a female Samoyed. Her name was Nanoek.
A few pups managed to get some titles and have given their genes to the next generation. Because of this I got acquainted on an early age with the FCI group 5; Spitz and primitive types.
Thanks to a village member I got acquainted with the breed Shikoku. This breed was enormously attractive to me because
they have a lot from the original features, which also feline.
They have a great intelligence and are very independent.
Our dog Natsumi choose me when we went to look at the nest.
I fell in love with Natsumi because of her playful, happy and affectionate character.
After 2,5 years intensively work with Natsumi on ring training, trail tracking and soon coursing, she has a fantastic character and is a great addition to the Shikoku breed. Natsumi is also a great family dog and she feels happy when visiting elderly people. This all together make her a fantastic dog breed Shikoku.
To be sure that Natsumi is considered to be suitable as a female dog breed, she has had all her tests like HD, heritable eye disorders ECVO and Patella Luxatie. And the outcome is very suitable.
