1 yr old female Shiba Inu, ineligible for out-of-state adoption, $350 adoption fee

Mika is the sweetest, cutest little thing you’ve ever met!  She’s been rescued from an abusive and neglectful home, but is surprisingly trustful of humans, and starved for their attention!  She loves people and is happy to meet strangers, but can be a bit skittish at first, especially around men.  She is good at meeting/greeting dogs out and about on walks and at the dog park, but gets overwhelmed easily if there are too many dogs, or they are too rambunctious with her.  She is quite fearful in new and chaotic environments, and needs a peaceful home.  Small children would likely be too much for her, but she did well with the older kids visiting her previous home.

She is house trained, crate trained, and knows a couple basic commands, but will need a family committed to working on training her.  She is high energy and will need daily walks and playtime.  She does well on leash, but is definitely all about the sniffs and wants to lead the hunt! She did not do well with the other dogs in her previous home, and has had some issues adjusting to being part of a pack in her foster home.  She guards her food and crate, and does NOT like to share her human’s attention at all! She would probably enjoy being an only dog so that she can be the center of attention at all times. She even gets upset when the cats in her foster home get the attention. However, we believe she could live in a home with a maximum of one other dog who is mellow, submissive, and not an attention seeker or resource guarder.

Mika has just had her spay surgery and needs to fully recover before we can begin scheduling home visits.  We will begin by looking at our adoption waitlist for a good home for her. New applications will be considered if necessary, but should be submitted ASAP. Mika is absoultely terrified in the car and gets really car sick, so she is not eligible for out-of-state adoption.

Mika’s adoption fee is $350 and includes her spay, vaccinations, heartworm test, microchip, and initial training class with a rescue approved trainer.
