Hello everyone, my new name is now Teiko and it means “hitting the mark” in Japanese. I am a 7-year-old female Shiba Inu and I was in a GA shelter before DC SIR found me. I had lived with one family since I was a puppy but after my parents had a baby I didn’t adjust well. I nipped at the baby so I found myself in the shelter. The people at the shelter were really nice. They called DC SIR when they had another Shiba Inu named Shiro and he has an amazing life now. The first thing you will notice about me is that I am teeny tiny at just 13lbs! I may be small but I have a big personality! I just love being the center of attention and getting attention from people.

I had a really long transport to Shiba HQ. It took all day with nice people volunteering to drive me! I was so happy to see the volunteers and I gave them kisses and cuddled in their lap the entire drive. When I got to Shiba HQ, I got to go on a potty break and explore the office. DC SIR was told I didn’t do well with other dogs. When I met DC SIR’s neutral dog Katniss, I growled and she didn’t want to interact with me so DC SIR thinks I’ll likely do best as an only dog. But that just means more attention for me and I just love attention! I also love boiled chicken and I was really happy the rescue has a lot of delicious and nutritious treats to train me! Soon after I arrived at Shiba HQ my foster parents came to pick me up and I gave them kisses all over their faces! I think people love when I give kisses. They squeal with delight when I lavish them with my tiny face! I’ve only been in rescue a few hours but if you follow my album DC SIR will tell you all about me! So far they can see that I love meeting new people and I am quite the cuddler! Once DC SIR feels they have a good assessment of my health and temperament, which is a minimum of 2-weeks, I will be available for adoption! Please share my album to help me find a loving forever home!
