The following article is part of an ongoing effort to help homeless dogs in and around Toronto find suitable and loving homes. Currently, the need is great but the homes are few. Your help is desperately needed.
This Shiba Inu/Chow Chow mix has a terrific temperament and has shown off her love of playing while she awaits new owners at Camp Lotsa Dogs north of Toronto, Ontario.
‘Miss Lacey,’ as she has been called is described as a “bundle of happiness and love,” not unlike a more even keeled smaller breed. She is not aggressive in any way and simply enjoys playing or lying on a couch to relax. She gets along well with other dogs, cats and people, and can run with the best of them. This dog would love a home with children who can play with her.
Lacey is between 1 ½ to 2 years and she weighs approximately 35 pounds. She is spayed, up-to-date on her routine shots and housetrained.
If you feel that you could offer this dog a new beginning, please contact Camp Lotsa Dogs by email at email@example.com. For more details, you can also email firstname.lastname@example.org and put ‘Pet Inquiry: Lacy Courtesy Post PFId#17814119’ in the subject line or call 519.831.8998.
Shiba Inus are a rare breed of dogs that originated in Japan. They are the smallest of six original and distinct breeds that were bred for hunting. Shiba means ‘brushwood’ in Japanese, which refers to a type of shrub that has leaves that turn red in the fall. Shiba Inus used to hunt in wild shrubs and this dog’s coat is the same color as well. Since Shiba also means small, these dogs are referred to as “little brushwood dogs.”
Shiba Rescue GTA aims to rescue Shiba Inu and help find them homes. This organization also runs fundraising and fund distribution to help in this effort. Information on this breed is also available to the public.
