A Brief Update on Ninja

Ninja has been having fun… and we are always glad to hear that our shibas and fosters are having fun together. Although Ninja was on anxiety medication, it seems like it isn’t something he will need to keep taking as long as his routine is active, engaging, and he gets used to the loud noises […]
