Shiba Inu Rescue of Texas has been going through their adoption applications looking for Sasha’s perfect home and it looks like they may have found one.
Foster Dogs (mostly Shibas) Who Have Lived With Jenna & Snickers
When Snickers came to NYC to live with us in 2004, we assumed he would be our only dog. Ha! We sure were wrong about that.
About two years later, we adopted Secret from her rescuer. A couple years after that, Secret and "her girl" (Jenna's daughter) moved to Florida for a year. Snickers was lonely, so we fostered our first Shiba girl for NYC Shiba Rescue. Her name was Shayna. She was a fabulous playmate for Snickers; they had such a good time together.
Our next foster dog was NYCSR's Penny. Most posts about Penny are on NYCSR's website. While we were in Indiana, we fostered Murphy for Midwest Shiba Inu Rescue. After Murphy, we took a break from fostering for awhile, because we moved back east and adopted sweet Brandy.
Our first foster dog after Brandy (and in Mississippi) was crazy little Sophie. She came from Memphis and was adopted by a great family in Florida. Then Zuki came along and we decided we needed to be a "three Inu" family again, so we adopted her. Shortly thereafter we fostered Smokey for NYCSR and had four Shibas in the house for a couple months! (Posts about Smokey are on NYCSR's website.) After Smokey, we fostered our first non-Shiba, a Leonberger mix puppy named King, whom I fell HARD in love with. I posted a photo album of King on facebook. Our next foster was another Shiba... our senior girl, Sasha Bean who is now living the good life with her adopted mom in Texas. Our most recent foster was Bella, a mix that we rescued off the street in Tupelo. Her photo album is on facebook. Coincidentally, she found her forever home in Texas as well. Shortly after Bella was adopted, my daughter moved out. Between my crazy work schedule and having one less set of hands at home to wrangle dogs, I probably won't be fostering again for awhile.
I don't write about all our foster dogs here, but what I do write is posted below.
Snickers and I are halfway home from having delivered Sophie to her new home in southern Florida. Yes, I drove ALL THAT WAY to take her personally instead of putting her on a rescue transport. She has a tendency to be anxious and need reassurance about new situations; a transport would have been too stressful […]
I took all three dogs to the vet today. Sophie’s checkup went well. She gave the vet tech kisses and she wasn’t anxious about anything, even when they microchipped her with that huge needle! The vet says she’s very healthy and in great shape. He’s not too concerned with the “fly biting” behavior. Since she […]
I’ve been personally involved with the lives of many rescued Shiba Inus since founding NYC Shiba Rescue two years ago and I’ve felt varying amounts of affection for each and every one of them. Every dog is an individual (just like people) and there’s almost always something lovable about each of them (maybe not so […]
Murphy doesn’t officially have an adoption pending yet, but I think he will quite shortly. A local couple has applied to adopt him after they – and their Shiba – met him at a Shiba meetup. They’re on vaca this week and when they return the application approval process (home visit and such) will move […]
cross-posted from NYCSR’s blog OK, first off, I have to say that the sound of two Shibas merrily destroying roasted lamb bones is almost as soothing as a stable full of horses chomping on their feed. 🙂 Today is Shay’s birthday. She’s THREE today. My special birthday present to her is… a brand new, wonderful, […]
OK, so I have a dilemma now. I’ve been through the pre-adoption process with two different adopters for Shayna so far and they’ve both fallen apart at the last minute. The first had a family emergency and the second found out they are about to be uprooted by the military. [poll=2] Of course, Snick and […]
Snickers and I have our first NYCSR foster dog! Shayna was surrendered by her owner because she didn’t like sharing her home with puppies. (Her owner had other dogs that had puppies recently.) Shayna was apparently very unhappy and needed a place to live where she felt more comfortable. She’s definitely comfortable living with me! […]
