Missing Shiba Alert- San Jose CA- 3/25/15 - Found!
  • This Craiglist link is for Louie, a little red Shiba guy, who took off from his rescue home yesterday. We had just pulled him from the Sacramento SPCA the day before and he had been taken to the Bay Area Meetup and Shiba Rescue (BAMSR). As the listing points out, he is skittish, very fast, and prefers women to men.
    Has pictures of him and map

    [mod edit: changed title to note that the dog has been found (YAY!)]

    Hope he is found! Poor guy must have been scared.
  • Actually when two of us from the Sacramento Shiba Meetup evaluated him at the SPCA we kind of pegged him as a potential escape artist. We saw him carefully looking around at all the fencing and gates. Passed that perception on to the rescue person at BAMSR -- but all it takes with Shibas is a second for them to make a successful run out of an area. Got to love them!
    There was a sighting of him last night and someone tried -- unsuccessfully-- to capture him. Animal control was notified.

  • Well, the little guy has visited the foster home, but bolted away. He is also hanging out by a homeless encampment not far from the home, but nobody has been able to catch him. The foster parent will put out a trap at the home. He says the Louie takes off the moment he catches sight of a person.
