Dog for Adoption: Ebisu
A hit with the shelter staff, the now 6-year-old Ebisu was first featured here in September 2007. Unfortunately, he’s still at the shelter and still yearning for a home. The only reason the people at ARK can give as to why this lovable dog has yet to be adopted is his size. But, Ebisu only looks big. He’s a mere 15 kg, less than a chubby beagle. This pup has learned to jump fences as high as 150cm, and it’s feared he’s expressing his desperation to leave the shelter. Expressive. Affectionate. Ebisu will make a loyal companion for a dog-loving person. He loves to play ball and runs with all the energy of a puppy. Summer is just around the corner. Imagine a picnic on the beach. You lift a cold one in the warm sun, loving and fun-loving companion at your side. Heavenly. Ebisu has only spent one year of his life outside the din of the shelter. His bags are packed
