When I first came to SCARS, I was starving and hanging around a camp site. I would steal food and bark at everyone. They live-trapped me and they actually thought they got a coyote at first, hence the name. I am no coyote. I am likely a Shiba Inu cross male, and about four years old. I settled in quickly at my foster home, and at first everything was peachy. (We call that the “honey moon period.”) However, as I got comfortable and started to show my true colors, it became obvious that I would be a bit difficult to adopt out. I am VERY territorial and guard my place, my friends, and my person with a truly unnecessary ferocity. I don’t really like kids, although I tolerate the children in my foster home, and I love both dogs and cats. I have the most expressive face and ears that can contort into 75 different positions. Around here they love introducing me to something new just to watch some of the expressions I give. I do listen to my person, but I like what I like, and I hate what I hate. You can try and teach me otherwise if you like, but it’s unlikely to work and you may get told off. I have failed and been booted out of two doggy training facilities, and it’s been thought best that I hang here to chill with my buddies. If you meet me with my foster mom, I can be a gentleman; I just prefer not to be. How do you argue with that?
I’m a Sanctuary Animal
What’s a sanctuary animal? Sanctuary animals are permanent wards of SCARS due to medical conditions or behavioural issues and we are not likely to ever find an adoptive family.
SCARS is committed to giving these animals a home and the love, care and attention they deserve! We house them at our two main intake facilities.
We look to businesses to sponsor Sactuary Animals to help us offset the cost of housing them.
