NYC Shiba Rescue (NYCSR) is an all volunteer group dedicated to contributing to the quality of life of Shiba Inu 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 Inu 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.

 

Welcome Vanilla

Fifteen year old Vanilla came into foster care from AC&C on Sunday. By Monday morning her energy was waning and she had a runny nose. We took her right to the vet and she is now on a course of three medications for her urinary tract infection, kennel cough, and bronchitis! She feels better and is getting stronger.

Vanilla is a sweet dog. She is quiet and sleeps most of the day. Her legs are unsteady, so it’s very difficult for her to go up and down stairs. She only requires letting out and is not much of a walker once she’s out there. With her current UTI, she needs to be let out every 3-4 hours. She does sleep through the night without disturbance.

Her eyes are loving and follows the foster’s movements. She may be hard of hearing, but she understands hand gestures. At fifteen, her teeth are of concern. She hasn’t been eating well, and we think her teeth may be the cause. There is a small benign skin growth on her forehead. She is congested and breathing with a bit of difficulty, but these symptoms will clear up with treatment.

Vanilla needs a ground level home where she can be easily let outside. She walks unsteadily and hardly needs to be leashed as she seems to have no interested in staying outside for very long. She does not require a crate, just pillow of her own, preferably near a heat source.

A gentle, soulful old lady, Vanilla deserves a home where she can retire comfortably.
