14 yr old male Shiba, no kids –
Meegosh has always been a sensitive anxious boy and has never liked children, so he is really struggling now that his humans have a child of their own. He started to show signs of increased anxiety during the pregnancy, but it has gotten worse since the baby was born, and he is no longer thriving. He has always been sensitive to handling, so now that the baby is mobile, Meegosh’s humans don’t feel comfortable having him around their son.
Meegosh has been seen by his vet and they have confirmed that he is in good health. He has a history of stress-induced seizures and is no medication to prevent them.
Meegosh is house trained, crate trained, and a good boy. Because he is sensitive to handling, he needs a foster who understands how to approach him. He is used to a home with a fenced yard. Before the baby he was going for multiple walks a day and could go for anywhere from 30-90 minutes.
Like most Shibas, Meegosh can be hit or miss with other dogs, and is a resource guarder with high value treats. He has not been tested with cats. We would love to find a foster home with no dogs, but may be able to live with the right dog. A home with no kids will give Meegosh the stress-free home and the quality of life he deserves.
Meegosh has been placed in a foster-to-adopt home carefully selected from our adoption waitlist. He is settling in nicely. He is being seen by a rescue vet to assess his medical condition/needs. Stay tuned for an adoption announcement!
