Frank is fostered in Moorhead, Minnesota. 

Frank is a handsome, sweet 5 year old who was released from a commercial breeder.  As a result of Frank's past,  he is  fearful of humans and is timid in his surroundings. Frank will need some time to develop trust with his humans. Every day Frank shows signs of interest in his foster humans, but is still very cautious. With proper patience and love, I feel Frank will one day be a happy carefree fella!

Frank loves to be outside! He has a fenced in backyard that he loves to run around in with his 2 female shiba pals. His foster family strongly suggests that Frank's new family has a fenced in yard.

Frank gets along well the the two other shiba's in his foster home as well as the cat - which he mostly ignores!  Frank is house trained and has never had an accident inside.  He needs a home that is typically calm and quiet while he adjusts to his new life.  His foster family has not seen him around children, but would say that he would do best in a home with no children or children older in age due to his shy nature and need for a calm environment.  Frank has not been on any walks yet as he is still very skiddish and scared, but hopefully will more time walking with grow to be something he greatly enjoys. 

 If you are interested in opening your home to this sweet boy email his foster mom at to learn more. 


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.
