Meeko & Ruger *FOSTER FOUND*
Bonded pair of male Shibas (Meeko – 5 yr & Ruger – 3 yr)
NEED TO STAY TOGETHER, NO SMALL KIDS, PREFER NO DOGS:
Meeko and Ruger are a bonded pair being surrendered together. They are best buds and Ruger really needs his big brother to feel confident and safe. We are looking for a foster/adopter willing to take both.
3 yr old Ruger is the cream colored Shiba. He is a more fearful dog and is timid with strangers and in new environments. He’s a sweet boy and will warm up to anyone who respects his space and let’s him come to them. Treats help 😉 A quiet calm home with no small children is best for him.
5 yr old Meeko is the red Shiba. He is more outgoing, and loves meeting people. He gets vocal when he is excited. Like most Shibas, he’s hit or miss with other dogs, and can get snarly with any dog that is too “in his face”. He will also guard precious resources. For these reasons, Meeko would be happiest if he and Ruger are the only dogs in the home. He could possibly live with one other mature, mild mannered dog.
They have had a home with a yard their entire lives, and would prefer to keep it that way. Neither dogs have been tested with cats.
We currently do not have a foster home available that is appropriate for Meeko and Ruger. We cannot rescue them until we do.
