UPDATE: FOSTER FOUND! – 10 month old male Shiba/Akita mix
Soy is estimated to be 60 lbs, but at his age is unlikely to gain more than a few more pounds. He is being rehomed for the 2nd time. His current family was not aware of the challenges of the breed. They do not feel they have the experience required, or time to devote to him and he would be better off with someone who does. We couldn’t agree more!
Soy’s family reports that he is high energy, but a quiet dog. He is mouthy during play, but has good bite inhibition. He has done well when meeting another dog in his current home; he mostly ignored him. He has not been tested with cats or children. He is used to spending majority of his time outside in his yard.
He has not had any training or socialization and will require an experienced adopter with the time to work on both. He is reportedly house trained, but not leash, or crate trained. He will need to be neutered (at the rescue’s expense) ASAP, so fosters must be willing and able to manage to his post-surgical care.
Please complete an online foster-only or adoption application ASAP if you are interested. He will need to be placed by the end of this weekend. If you are already on our waitlist AND have breed experience, please let us know you are interested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
