Dutchess's Story...
Dutchess is a 5 year old Sheba Inu still looking for her forever home. Someone who will not fail her again. She is definitely not a first time dog for a family. Dutchess takes quite a while to settle in and even after still has some quirks to her. She is funny in the ways that she plays and brings her toys to you. You will laugh at her crazy antics but will need to continue obedience training with her. Dutchess is great with cats as long as cats are dog savvy and will not go after her, if she chases them and wants to play. She is very prey driven and has even chased a neighborhood fox. She does not do well with other dogs but you will notice her best friend is a pitbull. This Pitbull is very docile and just does not care about anything, she will come around and be best friends with a docile dog. Dutchess does very well with him because he ignores her but plays with her when she wants to play. She does not do well with dogs smaller than her , ones that are hyper , or the least bit aggressive. Dutchess is great with kids but still has some quirks. If she hides under a bed she will growl. If she is in a crate and nervous from a large crowd she will growl. She does not bark but has a weird yipe/scream to her. She is a loveable dog who is highly misunderstood. The breed is very stubborn and hard to train. But anyone who owns a sheba will explain that they are so much fun, funny and loving. Despite their quirks. Are you that family for her? PS she plays great with kids, but does get nervous among groups of children who heighten the environment and scream. Please help us find Dutchess final home in our cruel world we live in. Please!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dutchess, a ROME 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 ROME, or seeking a Shiba Inu dog from a breeder in ROME.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in ROME 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 ROME 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 ROME paves the way for another one to be saved.
