Hello everyone, my new name is now Sora and it means “Sky” in Japanese. I am a 1.5-year-old male Shiba Inu and I was in a MD shelter before DC SIR found me. I’m a happy-go-lucky guy with a great smile. DC SIR had me neutered yesterday. Today I went on a transport and my foster mom picked me up. Boy, was I happy to see her and go on a car ride. But since I didn’t know where I was going I cried a bit. When I go to my foster home, I got to explore the yard and this made me happy! I pranced and sniffed all over. When I saw the gate, it reminded me of my old family and I cried trying to find my people.

My foster mom was very nice and took me inside to explore and sat with me while I adjusted to my new place. Soon I got to meet two other Shiba Inu’s! One is in foster care like me, her name is Nikko and she and I had a blast running around the yard. The other Shiba is a DC SIR alum, and she let me know that she is the boss at my foster home and that’s ok with me! My foster mom says I have a lot of energy – even though I was just neutered yesterday. When she brought out a tennis ball I perked up and things got awesome when she threw the tennis ball because I got to chase it and bring it back! Yep, I know, not many Shiba's fetch but I’m real good at it! I’m also happy to be out of the shelter but I’m still a bit sad and confused. I’ve been crying a bit but my foster mom has been real great at comforting me. She also gave me some dehydrated chicken hearts and oh my gawd those are soooo good!

I’ve only been with DC SIR a few hours so there is still a lot to learn about me. They said my winning smile and sweet personality should get me a pawsome forever home super fast! Please watch my album to learn more about me. Once DC SIR feels they have a good assessment of my temperament, I will be available for adoption! Please share my album to help me find a loving forever home!
