Washi's Story...
Hi there, my name is now Washi. I’m a 2 year old male Shiba Inu and I lived with a family who loved me very much, but now I need to find a new home through DC SIR. I am hoping that when you hear about me, you might want to meet me and see how wonderful I am! I’ve always been real friendly with my hu-mom but I don’t always like men.
I am a Shiba Inu, you see, so I am challenging to raise and train. I am a bold, high-spirited "big dog in a small body," so that is why I must be placed in a home that understands that I only respond to positive reinforcement training. This is really important if you want me (or any Shiba Inu) to behave. I know that my adorable fox face and huggable body will tempt you into giving me aggressive hugs and torrential kisses. But Washi doesn’t want that! I need my space to be respected and I’ll promise to love and respect you back!
I played so well with my other fur brother and sisters, but I don’t like to share certain things. Like bones!?! Imagine if someone tried to take your Venti Double Espresso White Mocha Latte from you! You’d nip them in the butt too! So you see, I’m a regular Shiba Inu who would love to be in a home with other dogs to play with and savvy dog people to love me and guide me into being the best most adorable Shiba Inu I can be. It’ll be hard, because I’m pretty adorable and I know how to wrap you around my little paw!
Washi is housebroken, utd on vaccinations, micro chipped and neutered. He trusts women more but can warm up to men. Must be familiar with positive training and/or willing to learn positive training techniques.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Washi, a Manassas 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 Manassas, or seeking a Shiba Inu dog from a breeder in Manassas.

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