Adoptable Dog of the Week – Shiloh

Sweet, smart, and ready to be pampered, this pooch is looking for a family to love and cherish him forever! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Shiloh, a 2 years old  Shiba Inu and Shepherd mix from Ballston Spa, New York. This handsome fella is neutered, current on his vaccines, and knows basic commands. Shiloh does well with larger dogs but needs a home without small animals or children in the family. 

Shiloh’s Tale

This gentle-hearted, charming pooch will steal your heart if you give him a chance! While initially a bit shy, especially around men, Shiloh turns into the sweetest, cuddliest guy as soon as he warms up to you. He will happily snuggle with you on the couch and lazily nap while you watch Netflix, but if you’re in the mood for hiking and exploring nature – he’ll be up for that, too. He’s really well balanced and will make a great companion to an active owner or a person that’s not too big on daily hikes or long walks, but wants a buddy to motivate them to ramp up that step count.

A smart cookie, Shiloh already knows sit, down, stay, and come, and since he’s very treat-motivated, he might learn a few more tricks to flaunt if you’re willing to bribe him with yummies. He’s also very well-behaved on the leash and loves going on walks. When it comes to potential four-legged siblings, Shiloh does well with dogs his size or larger but doesn’t get along with cats or small breed dogs – or any other small animal, for that matter. Shiloh needs a quiet, peaceful environment to thrive and feel at ease, so he’d do best in a home without any children in the family.
