6 yr old male Shiba – NO DOGS – NO SMALL CHILDREN :
This handsome boy is Sumo. He needs a home with no small children and no dogs. Sumo is independent, but affectionate, and attentive to his humans. He is reactive to dogs when off leash, so he will not be able to live with dogs, go to doggy daycare/pet hotels, or hang out with your friends’ & family’s dogs. He is good on leash and can pass other dogs on walks without reacting. He has not been tested with cats.
Sumo is house trained and crate trained. Sumo is accustomed to a home with a yard. He is a true man of leisure. Sunbathing in the grass or chilling in his favorite chair are his speed. However, he needs to lose a couple of pounds, so he will need an adopter committed to getting him out for some exercise every day.
Sumo has been placed in a temporary foster home. He needs a wellness exam and vaccinations. Once we know him a little better we will begin reviewing applications. If you are interested in adopting Sumo, please fill out our online application. *If you have already applied with us, please reach out to let us know you are interested, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call/text 720-491-1278.
Sumo’s adoption fee is $275 and includes his neuter, vaccinations, heartworm test, microchip, dental (if applicable) and an initial training class or private session with a COSIR approved trainer.
