Mariko is a 9 year old, spayed female Shiba Inu. She was surrendered to a shelter by her owner who said they could not care for her. She came to us on Valentine’s Day and is up to date on her vaccines.
Mariko came from a multi-dog home but she was the only Shiba. All the other dogs were larger, both male and female. Mariko has been tested for several traits and did very well. She does not show much interest in cats or chasing toys. She is crate trained, good on leash and has some knowledge of basic commands. At a near perfect weight of 17 pounds, this sweet girl is just the right size.
Since she’s only been with her foster family for a week, we’re still learning about her personality but from what we can tell so far she’s a sweet, older shiba who would love to find her forever home and a soft comfy doggy bed to call her own.
