I'm a Shiba Inu.

Here is my temperament:

(Okay this part is pretty good)

A spirited boldness, a good nature, and an unaffected forthrightness, which together yield dignity and natural beauty. The Shiba has an independent nature and can be reserved toward strangers but is loyal and affectionate to those who earn his respect.

(This part isn't so good)

At times aggressive toward other dogs, the Shiba is always under the control of his handler. Any aggression toward handler or judge or any overt shyness must be severely penalized.

(This part is bad)

Serious Fault: Five or more missing teeth is a very serious fault and must be penalized.
