Matoshi's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Matoshi's Story...
Matoshi is a 9 year old red male shiba inu who was surrendered to a West Virginia shelter because he was suffering from severe skin allergies.They wanted to make sure he found a good home so they asked DCSIR to help.

Matoshi came into DCSIR with pus-filled eyes and painful, raw itchy skin. With DCSIR's allergy program of raw feeding and no drugs, over several months Matoshi has now progressed into a happy, furry dog with plenty of energy and fun--who loves to play fetch! He is good with most other dogs, cats, and children over age 12.

Matoshi was finally well enough to receive his updated core vaccine and microchip. Matoshi was so well behaved and loved getting head massages and pets from people who said he was so handsome and sweet!
The staff said Matoshi was a perfect gentleman in his bow-tie and he didn't squirm or protest during his exam! Matoshi has a little more fur to fill in on his rear end but he is available for adoption!

Note Matoshi will be required to be adopted out on the species-appropriate, nutrient-dense, balanced and diverse raw diet he has been on since his recovery with our rescue.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Matoshi, a Manassas Shiba Inu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shiba Inu for sale in Manassas, or seeking a Shiba Inu dog from a breeder in Manassas.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Manassas already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Manassas breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shiba Inu breeders who help with Shiba Inu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Manassas paves the way for another one to be saved.
