Adoption status: Adopted!

WOLFIEHi! My name is Wolfie, I am a 13 year old male Shiba Inu. I lived in a nice warm home for many years until my owner decided they didn’t want to take care of me anymore. They drove me to a cold, scary place and I was locked in a cage. I didn’t like that place. There were so many frightened animals just like me and I had to sleep on a cold concrete floor. One day, an older lady came and took me home with her! I thought I was safe, and it felt great to be back in a home! But soon after, she brought me back to the shelter. I couldn’t understand what was going on. I always tried to be a good boy. I was potty trained, knew commands like ‘sit’ and ‘come’, and tried to give my family as much love as I could. So why did people keep bringing me back to this awful shelter?? I heard my only chance of getting out was through a rescue. Finally some great folks at DC SIR took me out of there and promised me I’d never go back to that frightening, lonely shelter. Now I am looking for a forever home that will love and care for me in my senior years. I may be a little older, but I still have plenty of energy if you want to play with me. Please give me a chance to show you how much love I still have left!
