11 yr old female Shiba –
Katie was an award winning show dog for many years. After retirement, she was returned to the breeder and then adopted to a mother and daughter who gave her a good life; treating her like the princess that she is. Unfortunately, both of her moms tragically passed away, leaving Katie homeless. Thankfully, family members contacted us to ensure she went to a loving and deserving home.
It’s clear Katie has has been under-exercised and over-loved in her retirement. She has a lot of weight to lose. We don’t want her to suffer the pain and inflammation that the extra pounds puts on her joints, so her foster mom is committed to getting her out on daily walks and eating quality food.
Katie has been placed in a Foster-to-Adopt home carefully selected from our waitlist. Although Katie is clearly grieving the loss of her loved ones, she is settling in nicely and building a bond with her new mom. Katie’s foster mom will adopt her after successful completion of an trial foster period. Stay tuned for an adoption announcement.
