|Rescue Me ID: 18-02-26-00319Kenji (male)|
Kenji is a good boy with many typical shiba qualities and many that do not seem typical. His energy level is/has always been quite low. He only wants to play about 10 minutes of the day. If you try and play another time he ignores you (typical shiba). He is for the most part gentle with kids (no jumping, nipping, aggressiveness) but in general prefers not to be touched unless he decides it is ok. His default response is to walk away from a situation/person. [He never gives/asks for affection but depending on his mood will allow you to pet/scratch him to your content.] He is happy to lie in his bed and sleep the entire day. He is not dog aggressive, but rather dog indifferent. We do believe he would do best in a sole dog household as most other dogs do not react well to him, perhaps because of this indifference. He does have an interest in cats but not aggressive. His prey drive is minimal but as a Shiba absolutely cannot be trusted off lease. He is fully house and crate trained (sleeps in his crate every night). He is taken out 2-3 times a day and requires a walk (15-20 min) to do his business. He is fine up to 11 - 12 hours by himself and currently has free reign when he is left alone. He submits to teeth brushing, coat brushing & nail trimming with minimal fuss. Typical shiba fashion, he does not respond well to knocks at the door, the doorbell or people coming into his house. His response is to bark but will generally settle within 5-10 minutes. He does NOT handle car rides well and exhibits anxiety when in the car. He has good manners (doesn't jump on anything/anyone, dig in trash, etc.), but is not agile (can't get himself into the car, needs to be picked up). He has Lyme disease, titers are currently at acceptable levels as of his last yearly checkup. He has food allergies, a limited diet must be followed. Luxating patella in back leg - usually ok. At times it can pop out from running around yard, usually self-resolves.He was diagnosed with stones at his yearly checkup this path month. The adoption fee posted would be used by the adoptee(not paid to us) to pay for the necessary surgery, either at his current vet or new vet. (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Shiba Inu in Massachusetts|
Shiba Inu Dogs can make good pets in Massachusetts if they match your IifestyIe. The Shiba Inu is a Japanese hunting dog similar to a small Akita. Shibas are proud, courageous, independent, and intelligent. Shibas are excellent with children. Shibas can be socialized with cats and opposite-sex canines. Shibas can live in an apartment but do best in a home that has a yard.
