Each month a hard to place dog in foster care will be featured to give them extra exposure to find their forever home.
Ohli is described as a medium-sized black and tan shephard/Shiba Inu mix being fostered by M.I.T Mixed Breed Rescue. This 45-lb handsome, 5- to 6-year-old boy spent the first part of his life mostly tied to a front porch. Because of his early experiences, Ohli is skittish when kids approach him. However, he adores adults and has a positive history interacting with other dogs. He is generally calm, but with a medium energy level, getting exercise will be a big plus for this sweet boy. He enjoys long walks as well cuddling on the sofa. He is housebroken, has a short coat that won’t require much grooming, is up to date on shots and is neutered.
Ohli will require love and patience as he navigates through the transition, but this loving boy will steal your heart with his affectionate nature. An adult only home would probably be best for Ohli. His adoption fee is $300. If you think Ohli might be a match, please fill out an adoption interest form: https://mitmixedbreedrescue.org/applications/application/
