3 yr old female Shiba, no kids, must have yard, and another dog in home
This precious girl is Sky. She is a very shy, fearful girl who needs just the right home. She is good with other dogs, and will need at least one other well socialized, confident dog in the home to make her feel comfortable. She is a resource guarder, so the other dogs in her forever home will have to NOT be guarders. She will build trust with her humans if they give her the space she needs and allow her to come to them when she’s ready. Once she’s built that trust with her adopter, she will be very affectionate with them and jump in your lap for some cuddles. She would not do well in a home with children. She needs a very quiet, stable home that is not too overly active and doesn’t have people over too often. She is house trained and crate trained. Her crate is her safe place and critical to her ability to adjust to a new home and learns to trust her humans. Sky is too fearful to walk on leash, and therefore needs a home with a yard to go potty, run around, and play with the other dog(s). She likes chew toys, stuffed toys, and anything that squeaks.
Sky has been placed in a foster home with lots of experience with fearful dogs. She has Shiba siblings to play with and help with her anxiety. We will give some time to adjust to her new home and continue to assess her. When we feel she is ready for adoption, we will begin looking at applications. Stay tuned.
