Shoji's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Shoji's Story...
Shoji is a 7 year old pure bred Red neutered male Shiba Inu with very severe allergies. Not more than a year ago his coat was plush and gorgeous and now, he looks like this. He is constantly scratching, licking and biting himself. His owners have tried grain free diets, special medicated baths, even allergy shots but they are at the end of their finances and don't know what else to do for Shoji.

At this point Shoji has had an allergy test done which showed he has several food allergies and environmental allergies in addition to being allergic to cats. He is also prone to yeast and ear infections which he gets on occassion as a reaction to his allergies as well so he may have to be on anti-fungal medication from time to time. His ongoing treatments will include allergy shots every 2-4 weeks and special food which all together will run his new owner around $120-$200 a month. Shoji CAN be adopted into a house with cats, he is currently fostered with cats. The allergy shots that he already gets helps with the cats so we don't want that to be the determining factor for the right home.

Shoji's first picture was taken in his previous home when his allergies were not being treated. His second picture is of him today on treatments.

Shoji is FANTASTIC with children! He is currently fostered with our director and plays fetch with her 2 year old daughter, lets her climb all over him and even walk him on a leash. He follows her everywhere and even layed outside her door one night when there was a thunderstorm. He is also good with calm dogs but may correct an annoying outgoing dog or puppy that gets in his face. He is also good with cats and loves every stranger he meets.

Shoji is great in his crate, good with short fencing and loves walks so any home environment would work for him.

Shoji's adoption fee is $75.00 due to his conditions. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, dewormed and knows some basic commands. Since he is over 7 he does not come with a training course though we feel he would really enjoy attending one with his new family. Are you it?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shoji, a Centennial 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 Centennial, or seeking a Shiba Inu dog from a breeder in Centennial.

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