Nala Shiba Inu Baby - Adoption, Rescue
Toms River, NJ
Nala is a ten months old Shiba Inu, spayed, up to date on shots, microchipped and heartworm test negative. Nala had a rough start in life, our understanding is that Nala was given away by the owner to the grandparents that did not want her, She was basically crated most of the the day and under socialized. The grandparents then dumped her at the shelter where she shut down, became very scared and was facing a very uncertain future. The shelter reached out and SRNJ took her into foster care, after about eight weeks Nala opened up and her true colors started to show, she is precious dog but still shy. The foster mom thinks she would do best in a quiet home, with a secured fenced she loves to run. We do not recommend the use of a crate for Nala, her prior owner crated her for extended periods which has made her fearful of being crated again. Nala could be receptive to another dog that is not overpowering. Will play fetch, knows how to sit, but is all puppy. Is mouthy but can be trained to stop. Nala is all puppy and full of energy. She is a good dog and just want to be loved.
