Shiba Inu and Golden Retriever mixes have similar health needs. Shibas shed as much as their parents. They both require a weekly bath and brushing and should be groomed twice a week. Both breeds require moderate exercise, so they should be taken for a walk every day. This breed is susceptible to hip dysplasia, patellar luxation, and other health issues.
Shiba Inu and Golden Retriever mixes are medium to large in size and weigh between thirty and fifty pounds. Although this breed is more capable of growing than purebred dogs, there is no standard for the size of a Shiba Golden mixture. The Shiba Inu’s size can vary depending on which parent brought the gene.
Shiba Inu and Labrador Retriever mixes come in a variety of colors, with some having white markings and others solid black fur. The latter has the characteristic black coat of a Labrador. These dogs will have short, dense, flat hair, and have similar temperament. The most popular Shiba Inu Labrador breed is the Shiba Inu Labrador.
The temperament of a Shiba Inu/Golden Retriever mix depends on its parent breed. Golden Shibas are docile, friendly and loving. They can be territorial and protective of their owners so it is important to socialize with them early. However, the Shiba Inu Golden Retriever mix temperament may be quite different from the Golden Retriever. Your puppy’s temperament will depend on the parent breeds.
While both parents are known for their outgoing personalities, Shiba Inus tend to be standoffish, and the Labrador is outgoing and social. Your Labrador and Shiba Inu mix will be playful, but they will also need some alone time. As both parents are bred to hunt and retrieve, their characteristics are balanced well.
