Birdie is fostered in Florissant, Missouri.

Meet Birdie, this adorable petite girl is very outgoing and friendly. She showers her humans with love, hugs and kisses. Birdie is house trained; crate trained and knows her name. She enjoys exploring her space, running the yard chasing after the squirrels and birds that enter her domain. She loves her treats (well, any food) and enjoys playing with toys. Her favorite spot inside the house is looking out a window and watching over her neighborhood. She gets along well with her foster sister and brother.

Birdie is still very much a puppy. She needs lots of love, attention and activity, so a fenced in back yard is a priority. Potential adopters need to understand the breed, their energy and their shibatude. Birdie should not share a home with small furry pets or reptiles. She is a true shiba with a strong prey drive. She is fast, quiet, and sneaky. Her physical home should have minimal stairs/steps. Birdie is very uncomfortable around small children; consideration will only be given to homes with children 12 and up.

Due to her current health issues, This is a foster to adopt situation, as her future family will need to be willing to help her through her treatments and rehabilitation.  Birdie is currently undergoing heartworm treatment.  5-6 months after her last treatment, she will need to be spayed.  Birdie also has luxating patellas in both knees which will need correction.  Otherwise, Birdie is happy and in good health.

An adoption application and home visit need to be completed and on file in order to be considered as an adoptive home.  For more information on Birdie, you can contact her foster family at


Any one interested in adopting this dog must first complete an adoption application indicating the name of the dog(s) they are interested in learning more about.  Once the adoption application is received, our adoption coordinator will contact you.  You must respond to this email to set up your home visit and complete the approval process.  The entire adoption process is outlined on our web site.

NOTE: Due to the breed's independent and prey driven nature, Shibas should ALWAYS be leashed whenever they are outside of a securely fenced area.  In addition, many Shibas are door bolters and care should be taken around doors and other escape points.
