Ginger's Story...
Ginger is a darling purebred Shiba Inu who came to us from a caring soul who rescued this girl from a breeder in distress. She's a sweet 3 yr old and has an exceptionally calm and gentle temperament - almost stoic. We've recently learned she was abused by her original owner who often kicked her down the stairs, so we're not placing her in a dwelling with primary access via stairs. She's just too traumatized and scared of stairways. That's her main demon. Otherwise she's a gentle soul. She is paper trained and housebroken and has lived with other dogs just fine. We don't recommend her for those with children, though - a quieter home preferred. She can be a bit shy. But with all she's been through - I wouldn't want to meet one more stranger either. But for those she knows and trusts - she's very attentive. She loves to go for walks and perks right up at the mere mention. We're taking applications to find just the right home for this special girl.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ginger, a New York 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 New York, or seeking a Shiba Inu dog from a breeder in New York.

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