need to rehome my boyfriends shiba inu. Male fixed , up to date on shots, healthy, loving, potty trained, house trained. I bought this dog for my boyfriend for his birthday ...he loves this dog and so do the kids and i but unfortanatly my boyfriend is deployed for 15 months in iraq and ive now have tried everything possible and can not handle him any more nor spend anymore money . He is a runner! and does not respond to kids or females what so ever....only men! I have tried tieing him up, he will dig a hole big enough to bury me lol no joke, so i put him in drivway were he couldnt dig but then my younger kids kept letting him off, i put in a under ground fence, he dug himself a tunnel to go uder the fence , I fixed it ..he dug nine more. then desided he would jump on the trampoline and jump over my five foot fence...any how he is now tied to a dog house but i can not let him in anymore cause with four kids he will sneak out the door and be gone. so now he sits and barks so i went and bought a bark collar lol so if he barks and it shocks him its now worse he goes nut and yelps like he is being killed. He is to much stress for me!! very picky about were he goes... and will only rehome him to a single guy. He loves to run and go in the woods, he is allergic to chicken and scared of going in the water. His name is niko he will be two in march. there is a small rehoming fee.

Here's the link. The dog is gorgeous! I've always been interested in Shibas but unfortunately this just isn't the right time for us: shiba inu

If she can't give him the home he deserves she needs to find a good home for him.

He sounds like a typical Shiba to me. People really need to research before they buy!

Gah I want this dog!

I'd ask where this dog's breeder is, but dollars to donuts it's a puppy mill purchase.

I feel like I should have this on my forhead... "My beagle won't stop howling" "My shepherd is so protective over my family" "My jack russel is so hyper" It's like banging my head against the wall...


Poop puppy! I hope he finds a good home!

I feel sorry for the deployed boyfriend. What else will be gone when he gets home?

I wonder what the boyfriend thinks about this? Aren't there organizations to find foster homes for soldiers' pets while they are deployed?

I think there may be some but I don't think there is a large organized movement. I've seen a lot of dogs needing homes because their owners are being deployed. It's so terribly sad!

Dog was not bored, it is a Shiba, being a Shiba, and Nicki you do NOT want a Shiba. They are a breed I would never ever recommend someone getting. At least not anyone who wants a dog, Shibas are for people who want cats, but cats that listen even less.
