Rex the Shiba Inu


Some of you might have heard the news about the Shiba Inu who was taped to a fridge. If not here is a quick write up about the incident. Luckily Rex was rescued and was recovering at the local Humane Society. Just heard today that he is living in foster care with other Shibas, which is great news and we hope everything works out for Rex, and he finds a wonderful forever home real soon.

If you would like to donate to Rex's cause, please visit the Humane Society of Boulder CO.

I'd also like to suggest donating to your favorite Shiba Inu rescue. Luckily taping Shibas to fridges isn't commonplace but plenty of wonderful Shibas do get abused or just end up in bad situations. So many Shiba rescues are doing great work finding those dogs loving homes. Let's help them out!

Roux is an alumni of Midwest Shiba Inu Rescue, home of the Shiba Shoppe. I own plenty of the shiba magnets and water bottles. Maybe now I should get some of those great Shiba wine glasses!
