Deaf Shiba Inu Pulled from Muddy Ditch Gets Second Chance in Rescue


Tomomi is a senior female Shiba Inu who was found bald, sick, and stuck in a muddy ditch. A nearby family heard her desperate cries and arranged for her to get out and taken to an animal shelter. The shelter cared for her as best they could, even dressing her in a pink sweater to cover her bald and infected skin. DC SIR soon heard about Tomomi’s story from a fan of the rescue, and more than 50 people helped raise $2,000 to bring her into the rescue. She is now living in a foster home and beginning DC SIR’s allergy program, which has helped dogs like Matoshi recover a healthy, full coat of fur.
