Hello, my name is Thomas. I am a handsome and smart male Shiba Inu/Corgi mix puppy who is quite stubborn, but seriously, would you expect anything less from a Shiba?? Hee, hee! I enjoy chewing on anything I can get my nibblers on including paper, and I use a smart/slow feeder for food because quite frankly, regular bowls are simply too boring!
In addition to chewing, I love running up and down the stairs, taking naps on my chair, and playing with my fur sister. My new home will need to have a fenced yard for me and hopefully a female fur companion with whom I can play. I prefer dogs who are my size or smaller and I prefer females as I tend to resource-guard with my male fur sibs. I guess one could say I’m a bit of a ladies’ man! LOL!! I met cats and kids at a temporary foster home. I ignore cats. Kids can be loud and unpredictable. I would prefer no young kids in my forever family. I am leash trained and working diligently on potty training but I already know what “outside” and “go potty” mean so I know I will master potty training if I can stay on a consistent schedule. Additionally, foster mom says that I’m “very much about stranger danger” which is true…even with people I’ve met many times. I guess it’s safe to say that I’m a one-person dog…yep, monogamy is kinda my thing!
Anyway, some may say I’m high maintenance, but I like to say that I just know what I want and what I want is to be unconditionally loved by a patient family who will never give up on me! I think you and I are destined to spend our life together so hurry up and let’s get on with it! Hee, hee!! Love, Thomas
I’m a growing puppy and I have not yet had a lot of experience with crates, kids or cats and I might bark if something alarms me, but I really love to learn and hoping for a family who will take me to a basic obedience class to continue to help me build confidence and dog skills. Ideally my forever home would need to be home during the day to help me with my potty training and not leave me for breaks longer than 3 – 4 hours. If you are looking for a best friend, please fill out the puppy application. The more info you include on the application the better so I can find a good match for my forever home. Get your toy box ready!
**Obedience classes are required when adopting this puppy from Underdog Rescue. Many of our puppies have a mama who had a past life as a breeder or stray and was not properly socialized before coming to Underdog Rescue. Since coming to Underdog, this puppy has been in a socialized and loving home, but that needs to be continued with its Adopters. Training classes teach puppies the ins and outs of being a pet while creating a bond with their new Adopter. Obedience classes are key to creating a relationship with your puppy while having it be a happy and successful member of society. Proof of Obedience Class registration is required for this puppy before adoptions can be finalized. If you would like some suggestions, we would be happy to send some trainers who have experience with Underdog Rescue, but a Basic Obedience class in your area should work!
