Introducing Barbie

Barbie came to us on 3/25 and is approximately 4 yrs old. She’s a red shiba, weighing about 22lbs. Her owners surrendered her to the AC&C because their building has a No Pets policy. Her foster mom has told us the following:

She is sweet, but really really timid. She seems nervous around people, but once I have her near me she pretty much let’s me do anything. Yesterday, I brushed her out. I think I got enough fur off of her to make a whole other dog! She is fine with other dogs. She doesn’t show much interest in them, but she let’s them smells her and vice versa. It doesn’t seem aggressive at all, just very scared and unsure of her surroundings. I haven’t had a chance to test her around kids, which I will do today or tomorrow. From what I’ve seen I don’t think she’ll have a problem with it. I’ll keep you posted.
