FOSTER or ADOPTER NEEDED – 6 yr old male Shiba Inu, no kids, no pets –
We need to find an appropriate foster, or foster to adopt family for Panko in order to bring him into rescue. He needs a home with no kids and no dogs. He has not been tested with cats. He is bonded to his humom most, and is generally more drawn to women. He is a bit of a cuddle bug, so he would do best with a female as his primary caregiver and snuggle buddy.
Panko has been with his family his entire life. He’s always been a bit of an anxious dog, which causes him to guard his precious resources. It has always been managable by eliminating high value treats and giving him his own safe space to eat his meals. After bringing home their 1st child, Panko’s anxiety has increased significantly, making his guarding worse. His family recognizes it’s not good for him to live with this high level of stress all the time, and have mad the difficult decision to rehome him. He will need a foster/adopter experienced with resource guarding.
Panko is house trained and was crate trained as a puppy, but hasn’t used it in a long time. He’s a well behaved boy, and in a home with no kids or pets, would not have a reason to be crated. Panko is used to getting 2 walks a day, which helps with his anxiety, so he will need a family who is active.
Panko is a very sweet social Shiba. He loves meeting new people and getting scratches! He will always remember a new friend, and will give a tail wag and want to say hello when he bumps into them. He has lots of energy and never tires on his walks. He is used to having a yard and loves to roll in fresh green grass.
Panko is now spending much of his time outside and separated from his people with a baby in the house. We’d like to get him into rescue quickly. Fosters/adopters experienced with resource guarding are encouraged to apply!
