**ON HOLD**IN QUARANTINE**7 yr old male Shiba Inu – NO KIDS<14-NO CATS-
Riku is being rehomed because he is fearful of children, and there is a baby on the way. We are looking for an adopter with no kids under 14 and no cats.
Riku likes to play with his humans and is affectionate towards them. He enjoys meeting new adult humans that are respectful. However, he is reactive to children and cats. He should not live with them, and they should be avoided when out and about. Riku enjoys meeting and playing with other dogs. He would do well with a dog who is near his age, playful, enjoys a game of chase, and sharing their toys!
Riku is used to having a yard and loves sunbathing. He likes brisk walks, brief games of fetch, and playtime with his stuffed toys. He also enjoys hanging out at a park and watching volleyball and tennis. Riku is overweight and will need an adopter committed to keeping him active and an appropriate diet. Riku loves to be brushed, and also enjoys snuggling up to his humans and back scratches.
Riku is house trained and crate trained. He has mild allergies that are manageable with an injection 1-2x a year. He is vocal for a Shiba and will bark briefly in response to noises, unfamiliar things, his humans leaving, or when he’s ready for a walk.
Riku’s adoption fee is $175 and includes his neuter, vaccinations, heartworm test, and microchip. If you are interested in adoption Riku, please complete an adoption application. If you are already on our waitlist, please email email@example.com or call 303-586-1465.
