NYC Shiba Rescue (NYCSR) is an all volunteer group dedicated to contributing to the quality of life of Shiba Inus in and around the New York City metropolitan area (NY, NJ, PA, and CT primarily). To that end, NYCSR actively works to rescue Shiba Inu and Shiba Inu mixed breed dogs from dangerous environments and shelters in order to find them loving, permanent homes. We will, among other things, foster and evaluate Shiba Inus in order to prepare them for adoption and seek out proper adoptive homes for the dogs. NYCSR also promotes responsible dog ownership by educating the public in the selection, care and training of dogs.
This is Apache, our newest foster Shiba. He will be two years old in late June. Apache loves attention and playing fetch. He is so full of energy that he was just too much for his disabled owners to care for. In foster care he has a nice fenced yard where he can run around and burn up some of that energy. He’d really like a home of his own though… stay tuned for more information about Apache as we get to know him.
Amy’s actually been with us for a little over a week now. She was brought into the Brooklyn AC&C as a stray, and now she’s in foster care with NYCSR. She is young, probably about 1 1/2 years. She enjoys walks and has been affectionate with her foster family.
She did give them a huge scare a few days ago when she slipped out of her collar and went for a run! Luckily, she was found by a good samaritan who took her to a vet and had her microchip scanned. She was back safe with her foster family within hours of her mad dash. WHEW!!!
Whoever adopts Amy (and really, this applies to any young Shiba) will need to be careful that she doesn’t give them the slip.
Our THIRD new foster dog named “Rocky” is a Shiba mix and is approximately 3 years old. He is a sweet boy who, at 41 pounds, could stand to lose a few pounds. Rocky was originally adopted from a NJ shelter but the adoption did not work out so he found himself back at the shelter, and now he’s with us. We look forward to hearing more about our sweet Rocky III.
