Meet Coy. She's an adult Shiba Inu, and a total sweetheart. She lived in the woods until captured and brought to the shelter. At first, her rescuers mistook her for a coyote and thus her name. For a dog to subsist on forest food ( my term ) and to endure the dark and lonely nights, it has to be strong physically and emotionally. I don't think my chihuahua would last two days in the wilderness. This dog has good survival ability. But for all her tenacity and fortitude, Coy is one of the most serene dogs I have ever met. When all the dogs form a chorus, Coy is silent in her kennel, unruffled and in utter calmness. She's simply not an emotional dog. Coy also has an uncanny ability to raise both her hind legs when she pees! It's amazing. She's like a gymnast on the pommel horse. I love this dog. If you're looking for a companion, please give Coy a chance. UPDATE: Adopted July 15, 2009.
