Dog for Adoption: Rikinosuke


Ed’s note: Rikinosuke has found a new home!

Rikinosuke is an 18-month-old Australian cattle dog and Norwegian elkhound mix, young, full of potential and full of energy. He absolutely loves people (doesn’t much see the point of playing with other dogs though) and is very clever. He has passed basic training with flying colors, knows ‘‘sit,’’ ‘‘down,’’ ‘‘spin’’ and ‘‘high-five!’’ With a ball, he knows ‘‘fetch’’ and ‘‘drop.’’ Rikinosuke, whose previous owners were forced to give him up following a death in the family, would make a great companion for an active person or someone interested in training. ARK is looking for a strong, yet kind, leader who can give this eager whiz kid a loving home.

Interested in Adopting Rikinosuke?

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. It is dedicated to rescuing and rehoming abandoned animals. All animals are vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. Prospective new owners undergo a screening process.

The Japan Times supports stray and abandoned animals by publishing this photo box every Saturday in the Weekend/People section of the paper. The information is then archived here on the Angels with Fur site one week later, on the following Saturday.
