Here is a pic of my dog, Kady, shown guarding her bone! She is 4 years old and a German Shepherd/Shiba Inu mix. I adopted her over a year ago from Chicago Animal Control. She has proven to me that animal shelters, animal control facilities and breed rescue groups are the best place to find your best friend. Find your next best friend (cat or dog) at http://www.petfinder.org Kady loves to go on long walks and she jumps up and down when I pull her leash out cuz she knows it's her "exploring/play" time. She loves to be around people and she truly exemplifies "man's best friend." I'm lucky to have her in my life.
Hi! Are you sure she's a shiba inu mix? She looks EXACTLY like the dog I grew up with who was a _husky_ mix, down to the white stripe down the forehead and the white kneecaps! (Except, Lani, our dog had floppy ears.)
Anyway, soo pretty! Good for you for getting her on petfinder. :-)
Your dog is beautiful. I have gotten wonderful animals from pet shelters. Thank you for sharing her!
Good for you, adopting Kady. We have a chow/lab mix from a shelter, Toby, and he is so much fun. He had 3 homes his first year of life and has been with us for 3 years now.
Congratulations on giving a rescue furkid a good home.
We have rescued three furbabies so far.
Puppymills are the worst...they abuse the animals so badly resulting in a death warrant for some of them. When they finish their breeding usefulness, they are left to virtually rot away, unless someone comes to rescue them.
God Bless the rescue groups...also the foster moms.
Pretty doggie. Yes the rescued pets are always the best. Probably cuz the appreciate having a home.
Thank you for saving this pretty one.
Thanks for all the nice comments, I think she's beautiful, too. I'm happy to hear there are other "pet rescuers" out there. I think she looks like a Husky, too, but the vet sided more towards a Shiba Inu (& I've had strangers come up & tell me that, too). And I might add, this girl is spoiled! :)
This is my dog, shes a 7 year old female Shiba-Husky Mix named Haley
I adopted here, as well
Shes very sweet and a smart dog
I've been trying to figure out what breed my dog Megan is. She's obviously German Shep because of the coloring but she's smaller, 50lbs and has a fox-like shorter snout face with a fluffy neck. I am so happy to stumble upon this!!! The pic of Kady lying down looks just like Megan, and also reminds me of my late dog, same exact shape. I looked up info on Shibas and found out they like to talk, Megan talks all the time. Wow I'm excited! Megan was also rescued from the shelter and is such a great dog. Pure breeds are not better, pound puppies are wonderful dogs!
