Hanabi's Story...
Hanabi means “Fireworks” in Japanese, and that’s a great description for this feisty 11-month-old male black and tan Shiba Inu puppy. He was purchased from a pet store in New York and bounced between 5 different homes; naturally he did not have the appropriate puppy training and socialization. He has nipped multiple people, resource guards his food and entrances and is not good with cats or other dogs. DC SIR knows they can work with his resource guarding and behavior issues since they have great success using reward-based training and relationship building. However, DC SIR will require adopters to be savvy in canine body language and committed to continuing science-based training methods with a DC SIR approved trainer. DC SIR was also told that he has fly-biting syndrome which has been related to gastrointestinal issues. Despite these issues, he is very smart and will be able to learn in the proper force-free environment. He loves outdoor walks and water, and is learning quickly how to walk on a leash.
Hanabi is available for adoption to an extended area (MD/VA/DC/NJ/NY/NC/SC/DE). He is UTD on vaccinations, 4Dx snap, microchipped and has had full dental. He would do best as an only pet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hanabi, a Manassas Shiba Inu puppy 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 puppy 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.
