My short open letter to Hubby: “Hubby, if you were a booger, I’d pick you first.”
That’s my way of telling you, dear readers of the NYC Shiba Rescue blog, that Hubby’s sinus issue from our last update persists. It doesn’t impede his every day life so happy will run and play as he normally would but he will also have an giant booger occasionally. He makes a funny little wheezing noise during the day and at night he’ll snore but these two attributes have become quite endearing for his foster family. After hearing it in person for myself, I must agree!
Hubby is petite for a male Shiba and is a friendly little fella. He has been to a rock climbing center and a Oscars viewing party and has proven himself to be quite the social butterfly. He is has been known to be a snuggle bug on the couch (especially if there’s food involved) and enjoys meeting new people and dogs. He’s had a sleepover with another friendly dog and is a gentleman host in his foster home to the guest dog. He is so much of a social Shiba that he doesn’t enjoy being home alone and his neighbors have told us that he has the saddest howls when he is left by himself. This is something that his foster family is actively working with him to get over so that he will relax when home alone.
In December, we noted that Hubby loves the Brooklyn street buffet. With his foster family’s dedication to making sure that he doesn’t accidentally ingest anything dangerous, Hubby has relinquished this habit. He will only pick up food off the street during walks if he is hungry but when his foster family reminds him to leave it, he will let whatever is in his mouth go.
Hubby is a sweet spirited Shiba but he still has to resolve his respiratory issue and the vet needs to give us confirmation of Hubby’s clean bill of health so he is not fully ready for adoption yet. However we are still accepting applications for his forever home! Thanks for reading!
