Introducing Goo Goo

I have the pleasure of introducing my foster Shiba named Goo Goo. She came to us as one of the NJ 22 rescues. Goo Goo is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, and house broken. She is currently 15.5 lbs and approximately 11 months old.

Goo Goo is a shy girl but once she gets to know you, she makes sure that you receive lots of puppy kisses and snuggles to show her affection. She gets along very well with her foster brother and the two of them chase each other around the house and share squeaky toys. Goo Goo has shown hesitation when outdoors because she is not used to a busier city lifestyle but is warming up to her new neighborhood thanks to the friendly dogs at the dog runs. She is crate trained but can be left with free range of the home as she does not display the typical destructive puppy behavior or separation anxiety.

This lovable young Shiba has caught the attention of many passersby in the neighborhood and welcomes the attention from adults and children alike. She has even caught the hearts of the local firemen! We are working on leash training her and her basic obedience commands. She’s proved herself to be a very smart, has adjusted the rules of our home and can be easily trained. This sweet Shiba girl has both beauty and brains!

Stay tuned for more updates on Goo Goo.

Goo Goo is learning about leash walking in the city. She had a little trouble with this street sign, but learned quickly not to walk around them!

Goo Goo enjoys rides in the car. On this trip, she climbed over and snuggled in my lap during a Starbucks break. She is a real sweetheart!

  1. Hi. Is Goo Goo up for adoption? If so, how can we adopt her? My husband & I have a puppy around the same age as Goo goo & we’re definitely ready to adopt another dog.

    Oh my goodness! I am in love! She is absolutely perfect 🙂

    Is she still up for adoption?! She is perfect!

  4. All of our dogs stay in foster care for a minimum of 10 days before they are made available for adoption. Then they have to have a clean bill of health, be spayed/neutered and be up to date on all their vaccinations and preventatives. I believe most of the “NJ 22” dogs will be coming available for adoption next week.

    Our adoption process starts when an adoption application is submitted. (An application can be downloaded from http://nycshibarescue.org/adopting-a-shiba/ ) Applications are reviewed in chronological order based on date received. Depending on the initial review, we check references and conduct a home visit. After your application is approved, then we can arrange for you to meet one of our foster dogs!

    I had a femal Shiba Inu years ago and am looking for another female. I am retired and live alone. I rescued my little Lady from a home that was neglecting her because of illness. She too was shy, but we got around all of that in no time. Goo Goo sounds so wonderful. I would love to have her be in my life. I have never looked for a dog this way, so I do not know how this works. Please contact me if she is still available. Thank you in advance. Anna

Depending on the initial review, we check references and conduct a home visit. After the home visit, if we have a dog that you are interested in and we think is a good match, then we set up a time/place for you to meet the dog. Following the meeting, there is a 24 hour waiting period during which all parties decide if the adoption should move forward.

  6. Hi,
    I have not yet filled out an adoption application, but was wondering if Goo Goo is still available. Please let me know! Thanks 🙂

    • Heather, Goo Goo is currently available. Adoption applications are reviewed in chronological order and take a little time to process, so it is possible that we have already received applications for her. If you are interested, you should submit an application as soon as you can.

      • Thanks, Jenna! I am sending over my adoption application tonight. I’m keeping my fingers crossed because I really feel she would be perfect for me (and vice versa).
