We lost our "terrorist" Shelby this year. Phoebe, black lab now 15, is slowing down. Darcy, 3 yr old chocolate, will be alone probably soon. So, DH saw a Shiba at the airport. He liked the dog and its size. So I started looking around for one to be our new forever dog to be with Darcy and found this little girl. Hoping she will be ours before the end of the year. Pup is about 2 hour drive away. Trying to see how we can meet us for the pass off.

Isn't she adorable! Her name is Bella, the same as my awesome horse that passed away. Can I take this as a sign?

Did you know Shiba's don't bark?

No, I didn't know that!

Looks a bit like a heeler with that coloring. I've not seen a merle before,

Gorgeous colors! Those paws look kinda big - how big will she get?

That's what I was thinking. My daughter has Australian Cattle dogs/heelers and they are wonderful dogs. Very smart.

I think she looks as if she needs a big heart to love her, an big space to run in, and a new friend. Hope it all works out for a perfect match.

Not knowing the Shiba, I took a chance to look and Bella doesn't look like one????????

We adopted my sweet old pomeranian from a rescue that was 3 hours away from us. The rescue agreed to meet us half way so we drove 1 1/2 hrs twice: once to meet Toby Bean and again a week later to bring him home. It was cold & very windy both times so we met and made the deal behind a Walmart!!!

Bella is beautiful; I hope everything goes as planned!

Update: DH nixed the pup. Phoebe, old black lab, has been having back end issues and started losing control of her bowels. He loves her so much he doesn't want her stressed with a new pup in the house. I agreed. Bummed.

Are you sure this puppy isn't part bear cub? I bet this little guy is getting lots of hugs and kisses.
