11 month old female Shiba, no small or female dogs, no small children
Lily is very petite and sweet, lovebug of a girl. She’s energetic, curious, and just wants to be with her people. She had to be removed from her home due to aggression towards a smaller female dog. She would do best in a home with no other dogs, but could potentially live with the right male dog, however, an adopter experienced with aggression and resource guarding would be a must.
Lily won’t mature for another year, so she has lots of energy and still needs work on manners. Her adopter will need to have the time to work on training and get her out for walks every day. She loves people, but is hit or miss when greeting other dogs. When overly excited, she will scratch at your legs and gets nippy, so would not do well with small children. She is house trained and crate trained. She loves doing the Shiba 500 around the yard and napping in the grass. She is very playful and loves toys.
Lily is facing the world without her littermate/brother for the first time, and I’m sure she’s missing him. Naturally she is feeling very insecure right now. She is in a foster home with a larger male Shiba. She is showing some resource guarding and separation anxiety, but we hope these things will improve as she continues to adjust and build confidence in her foster home. We will continue to assess her, and her needs. We will take applications now, but we will not begin scheduling home visits until she’s ready.
