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 ADR.org 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 ADR.org 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!
