Case is a Midwest Shiba Inu Rescue dog fostered in Saint Peters, MO.

Meet Case, the good boy you've always wanted! He's a little bit of a fraidycat, but his foster momma is seeing him get comfortable quick in his foster home. Some dogs are a bit too intrusive for Case's tastes, but with a bit of time and patience he seems to be able to warm up to all dogs. The resident shiba and him get along fantastically, which includes LOTS of Shiba 500's and sprinting on, off, and under the beds at top speed!

Case definitely finds a ton of comfort in human interaction, and will gladly run out of his safe space when called! His first while in his new home, he may be afraid of practically everything, from blinds, to AC, loud noises, and those scary cabinets. Because of that, he spends a significant amount of time in his safe places under the beds. During that time, lots of attention, love, and a nice safe place (probably under a bed) will really help him adjust!

Considering how much Case is loving the resident shiba, and vice versa, he'll probably love a home with another dog! He seems to feel more confident after a good romp with his foster sister. He doesn't pay much attention to the cats in his foster home, aside from a quick sniff when they come to rub up against him, so cats are no problem at all, either.

Case does have a small heart murmur, called a Restrictive Ventricular Septal, but it's not expected to need anything more than a checkup once a year. According to his cardiologist, it shouldn't effect his life span or energy, and shouldn't need any form of special treatment.

Aside from that, he's a good, healthy boy who's ready to find his fur-tastic forever home! For more information about Case, feel free to contact his foster mom 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.
