Animal ID: A500968Leia-Only $65 adoption (female)

Shiba Inu Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    We just rescued this sweetheart from the euthanasia list. The picture posted was taken at the kill shelter. New pictures & a more detailed adoption profile will be posted in the future as we get to know this pet if it is not adopted beforehand. Additional info: I have only had her about a week....So far I would say she needs an active family. Someone who will take her to the dog park everyday for at least an hour, or take her jogging. She needs a way to get all her energy out. I can tell no one has ever worked with her, but she's smart & is learning faster than most dogs. She's what I call a 'Velcro dog'. Wants to be with you all the time. ... (Read More)She super sweet & very affectionate. She likes to lean into you & be touching you. Only bad habit I can see is that she will protest if she can see you, but is not able to go to you. But I already see her improving on that the more comfortable she gets here. Energetic & very playful with other dogs. Confident, but submissive with the larger dogs (I don't know if she would be submissive to the smaller ones though). Loves all kinds of toys, & picked up on playing catch fast. Big personality & will 'grumble' when told 'No', LOL. PLEASE NOTE: All of the pets at Safe Haven receive basic training when they come to us. Depending on which foster home they are in, they may receive advanced training. All adopters will be given a list of words that your new pet knows at the time of adoption. What each pet learns depends on the foster home they were placed in, how much time that foster has had to work with them, & if that pet has any additional issues that need to be focused on first. Age/Birthday: 2 yrs. Weight at last Vet visit: 47 lbs Adoption fee is only $65 & includes: - Spay/Neuter surgery - Up to date on Vaccinations - Harness * - Other surprise goodies from Safe Haven - Free office visit to Vet or 50% off any Optimum Wellness Plan - Other coupons from Partners - Available Paperwork: Spay/Neuter records, Vaccination records, Vet records, Micro records, Recommendation list, etc... - Continued Support: Safe Haven will be there for the lifetime of your new adopted pet. If you ever have questions or concerns, we will always be there to help. Our goal is for you & your pet to live happily ever after! If you are interested in adopting this pet, you must be willing to come to Litchfield Park, AZ to meet them. Please e-mail for an application After we receive your application, we will contact you so you can meet him/her. ADOPTING A CAT OR DOG IS UP TO A 20 YEAR COMMITMENT! THEY ARE NOT OBJECTS THAT YOU CAN GET RID OF WHEN THEY BECOME INCONVENIENT. THEY ARE INNOCENT LIVING, BREATHING ANIMALS WITH FEELINGS THAT DEPEND ON YOU TO TAKE CARE OF THEM. IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO TAKE CARE OF, LOVE, & PAY FOR EVERYTHING THIS PET NEEDS FOR UP TO 20 YEARS, THEN PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR AN APPLICATION. * Safe Haven STRONGLY believes that collars should only be used as decoration. A dog can slip out of collar. Which becomes a problem if your dog gets lost, or you are trying to restrain your dog, & it comes off. Also, attaching a leash to a collar puts pressure on the neck, which is one of the most sensitive areas of the body, & could hurt them. For these reasons, Safe Haven includes a harness with every dog adoption to ensure the safety of the dog, as a harness is more expensive than a collar & some adopters will not buy them for this reason. A harness distributes the weight on the chest & shoulders. It also has a handle on the back that you can grab if need be, without hurting your pet (EX: Dog falls off your boat, just grab the handle & pull your pet back in with no harm done. With a collar, you would have to strangle your dog when pulling your dog in). Also a dog cannot slip out of a harness, so it is much easier to restrain them & they will never loose their ID if they get lost. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-21-00150Honey (female)

Shiba Inu Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Please Read First: Honey is looking for a home with a lively, social family. She needs other friendly doggie playmates. She is quite submissive, so she shouldn't be the companion of a dominant dog, but rather other pups that have a lot of energy and just love to play. She is good with big and small dogs alike. She is fine with kids, but doesn't show much interest in them. She would much rather be with adults and other dogs. She needs a home with lots of room to roam. She can't be left alone - it would break her spirit. She is such a happy social creature. She is around 7 months old and appears to be a Shiba Inu/German Shepherd mix. She ... (Read More)has that wild, primitive Shiba personality mixed with the German Shepherd ability to comprehend and an added bit of sweetness that is just her. She is loving, yet very independent. She is remarkably intelligent, very sweet, and has a lot of energy. She loves to play with others and explore on her own equally. She gets along wonderfully with other dogs and loves people, She is very curious and quick to learn. She can sit, stay, lay down, give me five, and comes to a whistle (most of the time). She opens doors if they're not locked and is very proud of herself when she does. She is the most joyful being on the planet when she can explore in nature. She's still just a puppy and needs lots of love, exercise, attention and training. She has that Shiba orneriness and can be quite sneaky, but it's all in good fun (well, for her at least :)) She is pretty mouthy and will get into things if she hasn't had enough exercise. In December she developed a few bald spots on her face. I treated them with coconut oil infused with calendula and comfrey and they have slowly grown back. Some time after that, her coat overall became dull and she started shedding profusely with spots of brittle fur on her legs along with some general itchiness. Two weeks ago I started giving her fish oil and probiotics. I then added bone broth into her diet. It has helped immensely. Her fur is soft again, but there are still some dry spots that will hopefully heal in time with a good diet. She also seems to have some allergies as she coughs occasionally and sneezes and has a mild runny nose at times. I took her to the vet a few days ago because her tail has swollen up at the base and hasn't receded. It bothers her some, but she doesn't act as though she is in great pain. She is just carrying it lower than she usually does and isn't wagging it in the giant circle it usually goes in. The vet said she didn't believe there was an issue with her spinal cord as she can still wag it and going to the bathroom normally. I also spoke to the vet about her skin issues and allergies, and she recommended blood work as well as an x-ray for her tail. Unfortunately, I am unable to afford these things for her. She does not act as though she is sick, but she would benefit from getting those things done. She simply needs more than I am able to give her. I live in a house with people that are not dog people, and the yard is small with no other animals to play with. I've done my best treating her naturally and going to the dog park every day and spending lots of time together, but now with what she needs medically, I need to find her a great home that has everything she needs. She is wild at heart, both strong and sensitive, and a truly unique and wonderful companion. If you're someone with a lot of space and are looking to add a beautiful girl to your happy family I would be so grateful if you would consider giving Honey a home. (Less)
