I'll be greeting my next Shikoku boy early 2022.
Meet Akihana no Ishizushi go
I think I'm going to call him "Calcifer" to match "Haoru" (Howl.) Like with my Kishu Ken, I wanted to stick to a theme for my Shikoku Ken, and since Haoru is already named and one of the kennels I look up to in this breed has an affection for literary works, I've chosen Dianna Wynne Jones characters for my theme.
My struggles early on with Kishu Ken have taught me to obtain my boys first. I was sent these images by his breeder. You may see him on my Shikoku page. This isn't to count my chickens before they hatch, but just because I'm just as excited as any pet owner might be to greet my new addition.
I'm casually looking for an Oregon or Washington co-owner for the boy that will come home with me, but I'd like to find the perfect fit for him. I prefer an active pet owner who is committed to training and engaging with their dog. He will stay in my home with the Kishu if I cannot find him his perfect co-owner.
Akihana in Finland still has girls available from his litter. If you are a home in Finland or the surrounding area, please contact Kennel Akihana no directly with your inquiries.
