Boo is a Midwest Shiba Inu Rescue dog fostered in Chicago, IL.

Meet Boo! This handsome guy is the sweetest shiba his foster parents have ever met.

Boo walks extremely well on a leash and enjoys daily walks with his foster shiba sis.  He will want to spend time with you wherever you are.  Sleeping?  He’s on the floor next to you!  He loves to be near you and love you.  He is fully house trained and and only had an accident in the house once.  Around women he is has no fear in our outside of his foster home.  With men he is not fearful outside of the home but is very skittish in her interactions with men inside the home.  He seems to be less fearful when his foster dad is sleeping but when awake he is fearful.  He seems to want to overcome those fears, but is still learning.  

While on walks he interacts very well with other dogs and loves our other shiba.  He is a climber and very athletic so having a 6 foot fence in your backyard would be best.  While walking around town we consistently hear from strangers how beautiful he is and within hours had people asking how to adopt him!

Boo has no issues with protecting his food as he is the most gentle shiba his foster mom has ever met!  He plays well and is the perfect dog if he can overcome his fear of males inside the home with patience and love in the right forever home.

If you are willing to open your heart and your home to this very special boy, please contact Boo's foster mom and dad at for additional information.


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.
