Dog for Adoption: Lime


Lime is a 9-year-old purebred wire-haired dachshund. Currently in a foster home in Tokyo, she is the mother of Haru featured earlier this year and now in a new home. When Lime first arrived at ARK, she had the habit of biting her back foot. She and her puppies had been kept in pens without walks and, though friendly, were suffering from a great deal of stress. Lime is a tiny dog. She doesn’t bark and is good with other dogs, but she does get tired and needs a space to simply go and rest sometimes. She still bites her foot occasionally when she gets tired or stressed but she never bites people or other dogs. The ARK staff members are hoping for a quiet home for Lime, one where this tired mother can just relax.

Please email ARK at tokyoark[at] or call 080-6146-3889 (English) or 080-6517-8913 (Japanese). Tokyo ARK is a nonprofit organization founded by Brit Elizabeth Oliver (read a Japan Times profile of Elizabeth). It is dedicated to rescuing and rehoming abandoned animals. All animals are vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. Prospective new owners undergo a screening process.
