This is Aneko.
She's a senior Shiba Inu who was taken off the streets by Animal Control. The handlers in the shelter were quick to realize fearful and untrusting Aneko wasn't going to be easy to care for. She would snap and howl at all who tried to touch her, and she soon found herself on the euthanasia list.
After several months of working with her, Aneko has made amazing progress. Although she still doesn't appreciate being carried and can feel uncomfortable being harnessed or leashed, she seeks out attention from humans and responds amazingly to treats and praise. Aneko is currently available for adoption as of October 10th, 2016!
Please share her story so that other can see that kindness, patience, and understanding can save lives!
