***WE DO NOT SHIP OUR DOGS AND LOCAL ADOPTIONS ONLY FOR YUKI***
Yuki is a 7-8 month old pure bred Cream female Shiba Inu that our rescue pulled from a puppy mill auction back in October. Before coming to rescue, Yuki had never lived in a home, never walked on grass, never slept on a soft bed, never played with a toy and never known that human hands can mean anything kind.
Yuki was extremely fearful when first coming into rescue, just planting herself flat on the ground and freezing completely when you would pick her up. She is still nervous of new situations and takes some time to warm up but she's getting better each day. Her most recent foster mom has had her for about 4 weeks and Yuki is now coming up for pets and also playing with toys! She loves to chase after tennis balls, but just doesn't quite bring them back right to you.
Yuki is crate trained and stays in her crate both at night and when no one is home. She is fed in the crate at these times to associate her crate with meals rather than being left. She is potty trained but follows the other dog in the home outside rather than ask herself. She has been fostered with dogs and cats and does well with both. In fact we would prefer she have another dog in the house to take cues from and help her socialize more.
Yuki needs a quiet patient home, no children and no apartments as she doesn't walk on a leash yet that well--the outside noises still spook her and she likely would not potty outside on a leash. And while she has been fostered with children she doesn't wish to interact with them, they are just too scary for her. She would do best in a one person home (woman) with another dog that can build her confidence.
Yuki's adoption fee is $525 which includes her spay, microchip, DPP and Rabies vaccinations, deworming and a 6 week training course at an approved facility.
