Lola is fostered in Madison, Wisconsin.

Lola is a 9 year old female who was recently released from a commercial breeder.   Lola is very timid around humans and any loud noises.  She is very sweet and interested in everything her humans are doing, just from a small distance.  She is gaining trust everyday with her foster parents, and is turning into quite the shadow.  Lola has 2 foster shiba siblings that she doesn’t pay much attention to, but they do help her make more confident decisions by following their lead.  Lola also doesn’t pay any attention to the resident cat.

Lola is house trained and crate trained, but is trusted to be out of the crate at night and while her foster parents are at work.  Her foster parents are still working on having Lola give them a signal when it is time to go potty, but no accidents in the house so far!

Lola is still learning how to trust people but she does constantly try and want to be around people.  She likes to go on the couch or find a comfy spot in the room to relax.  She is great on walks and walks perfectly on a leash. 

Lola is slowly learning how to be trusting of humans, and shows improvement every day.  She will be a great little companion to someone with lots of love to give and patience.

Please contact Lola’s foster mom at if you are interested and would like to learn more about this sweet girl.


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.
