    Figured I would start this, couldn't find a general post for shibas that need a home.

    This guy is Sage, he is in Long Beach,WA.

    Sage is supposedly 6yrs old, he was returned back to the shelter from his newest adopter because he killed their chicken and geese.

    Thanks. He is currently in a really nice shelter, but I forwarded this to some other rescue people in the area. His livestock issues may make it harder for him to get adopted on the peninsula (its pretty rural).

    I've forwarded it to a few of my friends in Seattle area who were looking for a dog, but warned them to read up on the breed before jumping on his cuteness

    "The breed profile for the Shiba state they are vigilant, patient and fiercely loyal and obedient to their master."

    Is mine just being a teenager or did i miss something? Cause patient and obedient are not words i would use lol

    I would use it for Saya she is patient except when there is raw fish involved then she wants it. haha

    Not all breed descriptions are 100% true for all the breed.. Each dog are different.

    Too bad with the killing chicken or geese issue.. I wonder if owner before did any research on breed at all?

    Shiba tend be pretty prey drive and will go for small animals like hamsters, rabbit, birds of various kinds..

    Saya leaves small birds alone, but crows, ducks, or geese she wants to chase she never gets them as they fly off or get into the pond..

    She once chased a hawk away from the bird feeder.

    Sad I hope the dog finds a home with a escape proof fence and they know how to work with him.

    Good that he is in a safe shelter.

    Patient and obedient......for food!

    But from my experience with Bootz they are "Hachi" patient. They Will wait for their owner to come home :)

  • I'm going to go ahead and post a Shiba/Basenji mix and a senior Shiba that I desperately wish I could take home just in case anyone on this forum has a place in their heart for them.

    These two posts were inspired by the fact that I really wish I could take the other Shibas posted in this thread home too. I think I've gotten some rescue fever. I keep looking at these rescue dogs that I want to take home (even though we're only allowed 1 dog or 1 cat in our apartment)!

    @notoriousscrat trust me, this is why I posted this... I told my wife I will wait a year - 2 years before getting a second dog, and all I'm doing is looking at rescues I could rescue and feel bad I can't :(

    Foxy is a 15 yr old Shiba inu abandoned at a vet's office. He is totally blind; his eyes have been removed and is very hard of hearing.

    I just don't get it age age 15years why give up the dog? :(

    I mean if the dog is blind I'm sure the dog can live just fine I know of a younger shiba who is blind and the owner lives with the dog just fine and goes on walks..

    I've seen 10 year old and even 13 year old shiba in rescue or on petfinder it's sad! :(

    I kept Dink till the day she turned 16years old! We had to put her to sleep due to the pain she was in and she barely could get up without screaming. pain meds and joint supplements no longer helped her, but we tried everything we could to keep her happy and made sure she ate and got some exercise till she got bad then we kept her comfy till it was time!

    Heartless to just leave a dog at the vet like that. Hope Foxy gets a good home to live final days in happiness.

    I've actually heard of a friends parents who left their dogs at a vets, because she was 14yrd old, they couldn't stand the thought of her passing with them. I understand what they are saying, a parent never wants to see their kid pass before them, but if he/she still has a few more months or even a year to live; wouldn't you want him/her to spend it with the person he holds dearest? Wouldn't you want to make their final moments happy?
    I'm just so torn with how some people treat their pets.

    My last pet to die , Bat my 30 pound, 16 year old Bombay cat, passed away from kidney failure in my arms. Emotionally, it was a difficult to do. But I am glad I was there to comfort him and his suffering to end.

    I agree loosing a pet is hard I've lost 9 or so pets if you count my snake and tiger salamander.

    I cried when I lost my dogs and my first corn snake it was hard.

    Dogs we had to put to sleep they were in such pain I wouldn't want to let them go on like that to die naturally.

    Yoshi my snake died at age of 14 or 15 years. not sure what year I got him was long time ago.

    It tore me and my family up to lose our dogs. We never regretted being with them on their final days though.

    Even if saya goes blind I'll find a way for her to live a good life.

    Exactly, I've lost 4 dogs and they've all been out to sleep because of pain, except one, he just got up walked 3 feet off his bed, sat, and laid down, and passed. He was in so much pain, that when he gave his last breath, he seemed happy.

    My wife was ready to have her 17 year old toroiseshell cat put to sleep but I held her off for more than a year. When I finally took her to the vet to have her ...you know... the vet asked if she always cried so much. Until that moment I thought she was just a talkative cat, and didn't realize it was a sign of pain. And I prolonged her pain for over a year. Sometimes it's hard to know what the right thing is.

Howdy, Stranger!
