Destiny's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Destiny's Story...
Destiny (or Desi) is a 5 year old female Jindo or Jindo mix who is located in Irvine, CA. She is spayed, up-to-date on shots, and is healthy except for some hot spots which are currently being treated by a vet and should be resolved. She is 46 lbs. The Jindo is similar to the Shiba Inu, though somewhat larger. For more information on this incredible breed please visit

Destiny was rescued, fostered, and placed by a private individual 4 years ago. This dog has been returned to her rescuer due to conflicts with a new dog in the house and is now looking for permanant placement.

This girl has quite a character. This is what her rescuer says about her:

"Desi is an absolute sweetheart. She is genuinely excited to see you - you could have left for one minute but you come back and it was like you were gone for days. She loves to play, but is very content lounging around and napping. I call her sneaky because one minute she is in the living room apparently napping and then moments later, she's gone. Where you ask? My bed of course. It is quite endearing. The only trouble she truly has are socialization issues that I believe with the right resources and love can be overcome. She incredibly smart and independent, but loves to know you're there. Also, Desi can go very lengths of time (at work) and be completely fine - no incidents, ever."

Destiny prefers not to share her person with other female dogs and is dominant around them, but she has gotten along with mild, submissive males in the past. She chases and hunts cats and small animals, so she will not be placed in a home with them.

Destiny will not be placed in a home with small kids as she has not been exposed to them. When she was initially rescued, she was jumpy and would reflexively snap when placed in a defensive situation. She has never broken skin though and was apologetic afterwards. She is very wary of strangers and it takes a long time for her to trust a person. Her rescuer believes that Desi would best thrive in a patient, loving home with someone that has the time and the financial resources to explore behavioral training.

As mentioned before, this girl has been raised as an indoor dog and is house-trained. She does not chew inappropriately except for an occasional Kleenex. She naps lightly for most of the day but is instantly awake to sounds and her owner's car pulling in. She loves toys, but doesn't go crazy about them. She has learned to catch frisbees.

She is quite independent, but responsive to simple commands. She is leash-trained and is not a door-bolter. With enough trust, she will reluctantly climb into the shower on command, but baths are definately not her favorite thing in the world. She doesn't like to have her nails cut, but will allow a good vet to cut them quickly and gently.

If interested in learning more about Destiny, please contact Trina at If interested in adopting Destiny, please fill out an adoption form at and write "Destiny" under the comments section. Destiny can be shipped locally by her rescuer.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Destiny, a Southern California Jindo/Shiba Inu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Jindo/Shiba Inu for sale in Southern California, or seeking a Jindo/Shiba Inu dog from a breeder in Southern California.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Southern California 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 Southern California 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 Jindo/Shiba Inu breeders who help with Jindo/Shiba Inu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Southern California paves the way for another one to be saved.
