Hello my name is Soshi,

I am a very calm and gentle mix of an Shiba Inu and possible Collie - very light weight ~ 30lbs and I was admitted to a high kill shelter in LA county as ii was found stray while I was looking for my owner. I am still looking for a particular car- I think my "human" just set me free somewhere in the desert area of LA County in CA.
And I so trusted my human.

I was so dirty and filthy, and underweight that the shelter initially put me under "senior" and unadoptable and then reached out to rescue groups.
As I do not hear very well, I feel only comfortable when I can see YOU - or sense you around. If you have another dog then that would give me comfort as well. My teeth are partially not good my spirits are up and hopefully with YOU on my side they can go further up.

After rescued me, I went to a nice foster home in the mountains and start loving to actually walk on a leash or just feel real earth under my feet. I was kept a lot in a crate which was not high enough for me to stand - hence I was lying a lot and hence my muscle atrophy in my back legs.

On July 8 I arrived in WA and will now be living with the founder of ADR>org and decompress and enjoy my new freedom.

I could see myself in a household that is calm, dedicated to me, and giving me lots of exercises (walks) and other delights. You can be sure that I would be making someone very happy that has a low key life style. Even an older person- as I do not pull very much on a leash.

If you are interested please send a mail to and the founder will personally write back and send you an application. This will be followed by a first phone call and then we will see.

I look forward to meet you!


About AnimalDefense

About Our Rescue Group...

AnimalDefense Rescue is a small non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing primarily dogs from high-kill shelters in mostly CA, as well as homeless, lost and abandoned animals in WA , and rehoming from owners who can no longer care for them for important reasons. By building and working with committed and dog-savvy foster homes, and boarding facilities, we will be able to rescue Dogs every year, work with local veterinarians to make sure future adoption homes will have a clean and complete health record for the adopted dog, and find them well-matched, carefully screened and chosen adoption home to ensure the dog will NEVER be returned to a shelter again in his lifetime.
AnimalDefense Rescue will serve as a resource to pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, and good nutrition.

Our Adoption Process...

All AnimalDefense Rescue dogs are boarded or placed in foster homes until permanent, loving homes are found. The dogs are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, microchipped and given any necessary medical treatment during this time period.
If you have seen an AnimalDefense Rescue dog that you are interested in adopting, the process is as follows:
Step 1: The Application
Each prospective owner fills out an adoption application. All applicants must live in WA (exceptions are possible), and we ask that children in your home are at least ten years old. We usually have no limited information of history of our rescue dogs and are therefore very careful about placing them in households with children.
If you and the dog you would like to adopt seem to be well matched, we will respond to your application by email. Feel free to contact us at any time regarding the status of your application.
Step 2: The Meeting
Once your application is approved, an appointment can be made to meet the dog. You can meet the dog privately or at –if applicable- at one an adoption events, in which we participate occasionally.
We require that everyone in the immediate family, including your current dog (if you have one) come to the appointment to meet your potential new dog. Adopting a dog is a big family decision and requires a commitment from everyone. If you currently own a dog, it must be up to date on shots, spayed/neutered and wear an ID tag.
At the appointment, we will help you assess whether the dog is a good match for your lifestyle and your family or not. We can also answer any questions you may have about the adoption process.
We will then proceed with a home check. Dogs from animal shelters can be amazing escape artists. By visiting your home, we can help you identify potential escape routes, and keep your new dog safe and secure.
Step 3: The Adoption

Before you bring your new dog home, you must sign an Adoption agreement with Animal Defense Rescue. In addition, a $ 375$ adoption fee is requested. The adoption donation is non-refundable.
Please remember that adoption contributions barely cover our expenses and only defray the costs. Additional donations are greatly appreciated and will help us continue our life-saving work.
Step 4: Post Adoption Follow Up
Our goal is to help you enjoy life with your new dog to the fullest extent possible. If issues arise, or you just need some good advice, we are happy to do follow-up counseling by telephone or in person. We can also suggest local dog trainers.
