Hi there, I'm Zoey! I'm a sweet young Shiba Inu. As you can see, my coat is pure white with subtle apricot shading, so I look a bit like an Arctic fox! I came to MSIR from a shelter, and I can be a little shy in new situations and with new people. But my foster mom says I warm up very quickly with a little patience, and I'm quick to learn. I LOVE attention and would love to sit and cuddle with you!
I had surgery on my back legs to correct a genetic problem, so I need much less exercise than a typical Shiba. I love walks and short play sessions in the yard, but I refrain from excessive running or rough play. But guess what—this makes me so easy to care for! (You don't hear that about many 2-year-olds!) On top of that, I'm already fully housebroken and crate-trained. I will wait patiently in my crate for you until you return to shower me with attention.
I'm not interested in cats, and pretty much ignore them. I enjoy the company of boy dogs. (My foster mom says I'm a bit of a princess and like to be spoiled, so I'm not a good match with a dominant dog.) I try to be quiet and respectful at all times, and am eager to please. Ideally my forever home will continue to nurture and socialize me. Since extensive exercise is not required or recommended, I would do well with an older person.
My adoption fee is $300. Please visit http://shibarescue.org/content/index.php/how-we-work/adopt.html and fill out an application if you'd like to meet me.
I hope you'll inquire about me today! I promise I'm a wonderful, beautiful girl who is ready to settle into my forever home with you.
