    Story

    Hi my name is Opera but everyone calls me Diesel.

    When Diesel first came to live with us, she was dirty, skinny, matted, and smelled a lot like diesel. Now she is clean and beautiful and we love her to pieces.

    We don’t know much about her past. The only thing we know is she is about 1 1/2 years old and had a litter of puppies this winter. Unfortunately her puppies were nowhere to be seen and weren’t rescued with her. We figure she is a shiba inu – corgi/dachshund cross. Her stubby legs are so adorable but don’t let that fool you, she is a bolter. She has the prey drive of Shiba and friendliness of Corgi, and howls like a hound. She is sneaky and tries to get away to go chasing birds/small critters so having a secure yard is a must. She is also a digger. Shiba inus are very unique and sometimes hard to care for. Anyone who is interested in adopting her should be familiar with the breed.

    She is very friendly, loyal, and loves people. It does take her a while to warm up to dogs, but she is doing fine living with her 3 foster siblings (4 year old male shiba inu, 2 year old rescued female tripawd, 1 year old rescued female Patterdale mix). She enjoys playing with our youngest who is much bigger than her. She weighs 13.5 kg. Not a single accident and sleeps through the night in her doggie bed or ours. She doesn’t mind car rides and she is pretty quiet in the car. She loves hard chew toys and soft stuffies that she can torture.
