5 years old

Kuma is a red and white, spayed female currently seeking a new beginning. Kuma was originally from Japan and came into rescue 2 years ago. She had had little socialization and was very shy and introverted. She has overcome a lot of her fears and insecurities and is on her way to being a productive member of a human family. Kuma needs a home that is supportive of her being included in its daily activities but does not do well with another dog. She can be shy at first, but does come out of her shell when she is comfortable. Kuma is located in Ottawa, Ontario and it is our hope that we can find a local adopter to enjoy the love she has to offer. She is a more petite Shiba weighing in at aprox. 18 lbs. She is up to date on her vaccination and ready for a new beginning. Interested adopters are encouraged to fill out an adoption application located in our website. Thank you for wishing to adopt a Shiba Inu.

What's New

Due to health issues, Shiba Rescue GTA will no longer be accepting rescues until the end of the 2014. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but we hope to be back up in operation in the New Year 2015. Our current rescues, however, are still seeking homes and we will be actively seeking new homes for them until they have found their new adopters, so if you are interested, please fill out an adoption application. Thanks so much and we hope to be bigger and better very soon. :)
