Magpie (now Moxie)
4 year old female Shiba, no kids, $275 adoption fee
Magpie is a gorgeous sesame girl with lots of energy. She is sweet, outgoing, and likes to be the center of attention! Magpie has a bite history, and therefore we will be choosing her forever home very carefully. Magpie is a resource guarder and each incident was the direct result of being given a resource she felt she needed to guard. Her adopter must commit to keeping the precious resources that she guards out of the picture. We have a rescue trainer working with Magpie in her foster home, and will offer additional sessions post-adoption to ensure her success.
Magpie is very friendly and social. She gets so excited to meet people, including children, but with her bite history, should not live with children. She is good with other dogs, and enjoys doggy day care. She could live with another dog if it’s the right dog (not a resource guarder), but would prefer to be an only dog.
Magpie needs an active home where she is sure to get daily walks. She is good on leash, but needs a human that doesn’t mind going for sniffs vs. a walk 😉 She needs lots of stimulation and toys to keep her from getting bored. She wants a human who will spend some time everyday playing her favorite games; fetch, keep-away, and tug-o-war. She is one of those Shibas that just needs an outdoor space to keep her busy. She takes her job of patrolling her yard seriously, loves to chase squirrels, and sunbath too. When inside, she needs a perch where she can keep an eye on things, and alert you to other dogs or the mailman approaching.
Magpie is house trained, crate trained, and a well behaved dog. Her adoption fee is $275 and includes her spay, vaccinations, heartworm test, microchip, and initial private sessions with a COSIR approved trainer.
**Magpie is not eligible for out-of-state adoption at this time**
