Dog for Adoption: Tomezo
Tomezo, a 3-year-old Shiba mix, is the perfect dog for someone who loves the Shiba breed. He is typical of the breed in that he loves people, going for walks, and being in the garden. Like many Shibas, though, he is not fond of other male dogs. Tomezo was found earlier this year abandoned in the street and, initially, was afraid of the shelter staff. He would run away from them, but now he runs to them for cuddles and he sleeps by the office desk on a blanket. He has been neutered, fully vaccinated, is still young and has passed his vet check with flying colors. Tomezo has a calm temperament and with his love of the outdoors, would make the perfect gardening partner. Please come and meet Tomezo in Tokyo, discover his charms for yourself, and let love blossom.
