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 Inus 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.

Guinness’s leg is still not completely healed after the surgery to correct an old fracture. He is still not using it all the time but doesn’t seem to be in pain. He’s still active and very much a puppy in his behaviors and silliness. He loves people and has become quite a snuggly guy.
Guiness still needs some training on basic manners and is not at all housebroken. His fosters are working on that daily so that he no longer jumps on people when he meets them and also to learn to not chew on objects that aren’t his toys.
We’ve been told he’s a super very energetic dog and loves attention. He likes meeting new people, interested in meeting other dogs, and very vocal and curious of the world around him. Sometimes he begs for food and tries to see what he can get away with but overall he’s a good boy. He’s just being an adolescent who is trying to test boundaries.
He’s also wondering when he’ll find his furever home!
Onyx is a happy well adjusted, easy going Shiba who is very happy to be part of the pack. No food, dog, or people aggression issues. He is curious like any Shiba but he understands boundaries and “no”. He is simply a real delight.
He jumps on people to greet them, but, he does it with a smile and a wag of his tail, people can see he is not being aggressive. He cries a little bit when he is left alone, until he falls asleep.
Onyx likes to chase birds and squirrels he sees, but with such joy, and his tongue hanging out as he runs. He is able to be left alone for up to 5 hours at a time so far. He behaves very well. He hangs out with the rest of the pack, wherever they are at the time.
Squeaky tennis balls are his most favorite toys to play with.
Onyx seems best in a home with other dogs.
UPDATE! Onyx’s fosters simply cannot live without him in their pack permanently! Looks like he’s already home… we’re so happy for him!
We wish that a little bit of Max could be mixed into our morning coffees because Max is a big ball of energy who loves to play! He is a young Shiba, approximately 2 years old, so it might be puppy energy but he has been keeping his foster family busy with lots of walks and play times.
Last month, Max battled a small ear infection and recovered quickly to return to dog runs. He can barely contain his eagerness to play at the dog runs and his enthusiasm sometimes plays too rough. His foster family noticed that he does best with dogs who are equally as playful but more mellow and patient with a young dog like Max. He maintains his curious and slightly mischievous nature preferring to stay away from loud noises, such as the sounds of traffic in the city. When meeting new people and going to new places, Max is aloof and shy but the curious side of his personality quickly takes over.
Max’s foster family has been working on Max’s reactivity while on leashed walks. We are unsure why but Max will sometimes lunge and bark at other dogs during walks. He has made progress over the past month thanks to his foster family’s patience. Max rewards their patience and love at home by licking and cuddling with them but only doing so on his terms. His recall command is typical of a Shibas’ and he only comes when he feels like it!
We hope to find a active family who has equal amount of energy to expend as Max is a very energetic pup!
