11 month old male Shiba & Husky or Klee Kai mix – NO SMALL CHILDREN:
Hiro is in a shelter. We need a foster ASAP to bring him into rescue! Hiro is an adorable, happy, high energy Shiba & Husky or Klee Kai mix puppy! At 35 pounds, he is slightly larger, and taller, than your average Shiba. He is good with dogs, but will chase cats. He should not live with kids under 13. He does well in his crate.
Hiro did not receive sufficient exercise, stimulation, or any training in his previous home. He will need a foster with Shiba, or other spritz breed experience, plus the time and patience to devote to training and work on basic manners with the rescue’s support. Someone who is home quite a bit is preferred.
We believe that Hiro has Cerebellar Hypoplasia; a condition where the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls coordination, fails to fully develop. This means that he is clumsy, has trouble with balance, and fine motor skills. Although there is no cure, dogs with this condition live long happy lives. Once in rescue, we will be able to take Hiro to a neurologist for an MRI and any necessary diagnostics to confirm this diagnosis.
