Story
Meet Kodan !! This cutie is looking for his new home! Kodan is a 4 year old, male Shiba Inu. He is extremely overweight currently and weighs 50 Pounds ?. This poor guy should be around half that weight. We are currently working on his weight loss. His new family will need to continue to feed him appropriate amounts to keep him on the path to a healthy weight. He’s very good about it and doesn’t protest his smaller food amounts. He is already neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. He is thankfully Heartworm negative. **Collars on the Foster’s dogs in the photos are tracking collars for safety. They are not shock collars** Kodan is a friendly guy but it takes some time for him to trust you. He’s never bitten or been aggressive but you can see how reserved he is at first. He’s not the dog that wants to be grabbed, hugged or petted right away. Once he gets to know you he’s incredibly loving, affectionate and loyal. He just needs you to give him some space at first. He does great with other dogs. Slightly reserved at first and prefers calmer dogs but has adjusted to a hyper dog in his foster home. Once adjusted he keeps up with the active dog which is helping his weight loss goals. He’s fostered with cats and does well so far. Mostly ignores them. He previously lived with young kids and was not a fan of them. He would do better with older and calmer kids. Kodan is crate trained. He will bark sometimes but does better if you cover the crate. He rides very well in the car. He pulls on the leash strongly still when walking. He’s done great with his potty training when let out enough. He had an accident initially but now that he’s learned the routine he does great. He has a medium energy level currently but that may increase. He is so overweight and still adjusting to his new foster home. He also came to us with extremely overgrown nails that had to be hurting his feet. We expect he may be more energetic when these things are no longer factors. Kodan has no issues sharing food, treats and toys with other dogs or humans. He does like to steal food off counters or in trash cans if it’s left available. To understand Kodan you should know the breed. This is what is said about them in general “ Shiba Inus are extremely loyal but can be stubborn and strong-willed. They can be reserved towards people they don't know. They are also known for having a strong territorial tendencies” Kodan fits that well. He’s an amazing dog if you understand the breed and how to protect them from getting into situations where they may fail. He hates nail trims and it would be best to have those done by a professional. He was very anxious at the vet however they held him and went slow and he did amazing. Around the house he still gets nervous when you are touching him in certain ways. When you put him in the car, ushering him in the crate, holding his collar, and even just trying to look at his paw it causes him to freak out and cower, yelp, and get quite distressed. This may fade as bonds are built. He has never bitten but we never want anyone to push him to that point. As Kodan has gotten more settled we have seen his protective side come out when strangers enter the house. He will bark loudly. He doesn’t do anything beyond that however guest should leave him alone until he’s comfortable with them. Despite these things his foster family adores him. He is easily managed if you understand him and make sure to give him the time and space he needs to adjust to the things he’s afraid of. Vet and home checks required. Needs home with older kids. Located in Hampton VA. (He will need to be adopted within a 2 hour drive radius) ??Please message VillageDogResource@gmail.com directly with questions or to get an application.??

Story
Rosie is a senior Shiba Inu who ended up at Animal Control after her human passed away in her home, and no one knew for some time. Her extended family tried to keep her for a few days, but she can be a bit snappy with people she doesn’t know. When the DC SIR Volunteer picked her up she was put into a crate for transport. She doesn’t like crates and let everyone know. When her foster dad picked her up at the transfer location, she snapped and snarled. Luckily, her new foster dad didn't have a crate and allowed her to lean on him and cuddle on his lap on part of the drive. Fortunately, her foster parents have worked with fearful and reactive dogs, so they knew how to build gain her trust. She can go in and out to their backyard to potty without issue. She loves all the yummy raw food her foster parents give her; she can gently take treats from them, but will growl if she thinks they might get too close. Her foster parents see that she is a sweet girl who needs savvy adopters who will take the time to earn her trust so that I can feel safe to be herself. She may not be a big cuddler, but she can bring happiness to a family that will take the time to give her a loving home.
