Calcifer is started in conformation, rally, and has been exposed to boar, rat, and mouse.
I am seeking an active pet, show, or performance home for Calcifer, no exceptions. I may consider a guardian placement if that guardian allows me to continue showing Calcifer in conformation and sports. This will mean the guardian allows me access to Calcifer for show weekends or is interested in accompanying me to shows. Calcifer is an easy going dog who enjoys the company of people and dogs. He may be able to live with cats but will need boundaries and slow introductions. He is good in the house and has a great "off switch" but still has puppy energy and likes to play with his canine companions.
He is an affectionate and dedicated young dog who needs patience and kindness to develop into a strong and confident adult. He is already well on his way but will need to feel like his co-owner "has his back." This is a "ride or die" dog who will enjoy hiking, camping, a trip to the brewery, and more if you make sure he feels like you have his best interest at heart.
I am only seeking a co-owner or guardian home for him as he is a young and relatively easy dog who may be able to provide a new Shikoku owner with a stable introduction to the breed.
My co-ownership requirements are that Calcifer is shown or entered into performance events, made available to me for health testing, and made available to me for breeding. Unfortunately at this time, I will not release breeding rights to my co-owners once the co-ownership is fulfilled. This is not an opportunity for individuals who want to establish their own kennels, but want to assist Akiyama no Roushya.
Co-owners are reimbursed their placement fees at the conclusion of the co-ownership requirements either monetarily or in the form of a puppy produced by Akiyama no Roushya.
