Shiroyuki no Kage
[White Snow's Shadow]
Shiro is inherently outgoing and playful, but guarded against people he doesn't know. If you treat him nicely he'll open up to you, but it isn't good to force him to do anything(such as when teaching him something) or he'll rebel violently. Actually shy around new people, he approaches strangers cautiously, testing the waters before slinking in.
When he plays, however, he is often reprimanded for being too rough. As such, take care when interacting with him; he doesn't mean to hurt you, but he might. Be understanding and don't scold him for every little thing: only correct him when he's done something you really
don't like(such as biting you...)
Once he's taken a real liking to you, he can be extremely touchy-feely. He's got a bit of separation anxiety, and will even do things he knows is wrong just to grab your attention. Once he's finally got you down on the floor with him, he'll pin you down with his weight and try not to let you go away.
He loves playing games and running, and will even forsake a little food-time for some play-time.
||Appearance (notes) ||
He has colouring on one eye but not the other. Like my mom says: "it's like he's wearing mascara on one eye, but not on the other". Everyone claims it makes one eye look bigger than the other, but they're actually the same size.
His ears and tail were supposed to be docked, but in the end only his tail was cut. It was cut before I met him at the breeders, so it was probably done not long after he was born. It didn't -- doesn't -- hurt him at all.
He's got white paws(shown here as gloves and shoes) which may or may not look white depending on whether or not he's been outside.
He's got a heart-shaped patch of brown on his white fur over the space between his neck and his shoulder.
He's got absolutely NO FAT and NO FLUFF on him. He's muscular all over, though it may not show up very well, and is extremely strong despite his appearances.
He's not that great at expressing himself with his face(look up boxer dogs haha), so if you want a great indicator for his mood, listen for growls or look at his stubby little tail.
I saw Lafayette's green 'aura' (XD) and started thinking about what kind of 'aura' would suit Shiro, and I immediately thought: pink. Hot, bold pink.
Reasoning being that not everyone(i.e. my grandmother..) likes him, but if you give him a chance he'll just leap at you(both literally and metaphorically). Shiro('Pink') is also shy but can be outgoing. He has a lot of bottled up feelings of pure 'OMGILOVEYOU' that he'll let out if you let him, but it's suppressed often because not everyone likes him pouncing on you and licking your face and jumping around inviting you to play wit him... So the colour grows darker.
