Adoption status: Adopted!


Hi everyone! My name is now Hashiru but you can call me Hashi. Hashiru means “to run” in Japanese, and boy is my new name fitting! Let me tell you my story. I’m a handsome, 4 year old Black and Tan neutered male Shiba Inu and I lived with one family my whole life. I was kept out in the backyard a lot all by myself. I was so bored and lonely that I dug holes in the yard (well, us dogs do love to dig!) but I would escape and run free where I could smell new scents and see new sights and have fun adventures on my own. The last time I ran away, my people found me in the shelter, but instead of signing the paperwork to take me home, they signed me over to the shelter! I was so very scared and alone and didn’t know how to act.

My people told the shelter I was great with dogs and kids but that I dug holes and ran away, so I was no good. Didn’t they know I still loved them, but I was just bored? Well, I was really scared. But the nice lady at the shelter knew who to call. See, she helped save Miko and I heard stories about how an old Shiba found a loving and amazing new life. I hope so hard that the people at DCSIR will find a home where I won’t be bored or lonely or ignored. My new life with my new name starts June 29, 2013. I will be available for my perfect forever family after July 12, 2013, but you can fill out an application to be my new pawrents at www.dcsir.org!
