Haku (Oklahoma)'s Story...
Haku came to MSIR via Animal Control -- someone left him in the overnight kennel -- so we don’t know anything about his previous life, but he has a wonderful temperament and will make a great family dog.

Haku was kenneled at AC with another dog, and is currently being fostered with two dogs, both of whom he ignores. Ours are a lot older than Haku (about a decade!), so he may be more playful with a younger dog, but he would also be happy as an only dog, as he really enjoys people the most. Haku is unreliable with the cat in the foster home, as he likes to chase him too much. Haku is very prey-driven in the fenced backyard, chirping to and chasing the squirrels.

Haku is also being fostered in a household with two young children -- and he does very well with them. He is calm around high-spirited antics and noises, and allows the kids to pet him easily and frequently. Having said that, Haku is still a Shiba, so interaction with young kids needs to be supervised. He would be very happy though in a family setting.

Haku is completely house-trained, walks well on a leash (although he’s excited at first), and is quiet in or out of a crate, when left alone. However, if he hears you moving around in another room, he may whine. He does not chew on inappropriate things, and doesn’t appear motivated by toys. While he is not a counter-surfer, he’s clearly interested in people food during dinnertime, but we’re working on his learning good manners. Like many Shibas, he is a door-bolter -- and is fast and frisky when off-leash in the backyard! But again, he enjoys a good neck-rub even more.

The adoption fee for Haku is $300. Please refer to the MSIR website (www.shibarescue.org) for more information on the application and adoption process.

NOTE: DUE TO THE BREED'S INDEPENDENT NATURE, SHIBAS SHOULD ALWAYS BE LEASHED WHENEVER THEY ARE OUTSIDE OF A SECURELY FENCED AREA. IN ADDITION, MANY SHIBAS ARE DOOR BOLTERS AND CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN AROUND DOORS AND OTHER ESCAPE POINTS.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Haku (Oklahoma), a Round Lake 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 Round Lake, or seeking a Shiba Inu dog from a breeder in Round Lake.

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