Adoption status: Adopted!

Hi everyone! My new name is Niito and I am a 9 year old male Sesame Shiba Inu. I just lost the only home I had ever known. My 2 older sisters are waiting to come into rescue with your help too, but for now let me tell you about myself. My dad’s work schedule changed and he no longer can care for us, so he asked DC SIR to help find me a forever home. He told DC SIR tell that I am very sweet and gentle, and DC SIR can tell that I am! I get along greats with cats, dogs, and children. So far I got to meet puppies and other rescues at the Shiba HQ and I’ve been very nice to everyone. I like to cuddle with people and I love yummy food!

Since being with DC SIR I got a bath and didn’t mind it at all. It’s nice to have a clean coat! I got brushed for a real long time too. I think I like being brushed! My nails were real long and those got clipped, too. I have an infection on my mouth that I am being treated for with antibiotics, but it’s nothing serious and I should be fine soon. I also have mild allergies which DC SIR thinks will clear up once I am on their detox program and raw diet! I really love their food! But I do need a lot of vetting!

Now that I am in the DC SIR house I get to go out and play in a fenced yard with other dogs. I LOVE sniffing and running around. Watching me you’d think I was half my age! DC SIR thinks I’m in real good shape and after my two week assessment and full panel blood work they think I will be ready for a forever home. I’m gonna tell them all my likes, fears and as much as I can about me in these next couple weeks. If you would like to help me get all my medical needs taken care of please donate to “Niito’s fund” on DC SIR’s paypal link. This will also help DC SIR clear funds to take in my 2 senior sisters!

To contribute to Niito's medical care, donate today through PayPal and write “Niito's Fund” in the note/details section.
