Hi all! I posted yesterday in the newbie thread about my Joplin Tornado adopted dog. Thanks for all the welcomes. Friendly board you have here!
The Joplin Shelter had identified her as a Basenji Mix and I was checking that theory out. It looks like the opinions here were mixed..some thinking yes, others thinking Shibu Inu…
Well, I got a call today and they said her spaying was done and I could come and get her. Turns out she's a real doll and we're very lucky. Hasn't gone in the house, sheds hardly at all, moved right into our hearts immediately!
The Adoptathon was a whirlwind needless to say. Iimage adopting out 745 dogs and cats in two days. You had to choose your pet without really knowing much about them. It's, I'll take this one before someone else does, really. But we got really lucky on JT. She's soooooo sweet. So far no accidents in the house, doesn't shed much, and is absolutely loving and she's only growled at our other dog a couple of times. He wants to keep sniffing her and she doesn't want him to. They started to play by the end of the evening but I had to break it up since she's just been spayed. It looks like she's going to be a great fit! Oh, yes, she's as small as I remember, about 7 pounds...absolutely adorable!
I've more pictures. I've been looking at Shiba Inu's and I only see that breed in the face. Not anywhere else. She's not hairy fluffy enough, legs are too long and strait, coloring isn't right, tail is all wrong (when she's prancing it's tight laying on the back piggy type tail, tighter then the picture). Chihuahua most likely because of her size and I'd say her ears are Chi... but with the coloring, the long strait legs and the tail, I'm thinking that says Basenji or something I've missed.
So what do you all a think with these new pictures (there are two others in the introductions thread). Thanks for any opinions you might have. I know I could have her DNA tested, but the cost really isn't worth it. Besides, it's more fun to guess.
