Foster Home Feedback 

5/25/23 Foster Feedback: 

Don’t let his name fool you. Slomo is a spry 10-year-old pup.  He can be lightning fast when it comes to stealing the spot where his foster parent is sitting on the couch.  In the time it takes to grab a blanket, the seat has been claimed.  Usually, he pretends to nap so you don’t move him.  He will also go into super warp speed when he sees one of his foster parents grab their jacket or cap.  He races them down the stairs and jumps on the bench in the foyer for easy access to his collar so we can attach the leash as quickly as possible in order to get outside.  He is a great walker.  Even when excited, he doesn’t pull on the leash and walks at a nice slow to medium pace.  He is completely house trained.  He is on a regular schedule for walking or being let outside in the backyard, so he rarely needs to use a cue to let you know that he needs to go outside.  His heart murmur does cause him to cough every now and then from exertion so we are careful to not walk too quickly or play too hard.  He takes his meds right along with his two daily meals with no bribes.  


·        Being outside--he loves sunbathing in this nice weather

·        Walking around the neighborhood and letting all the other dogs know that he sees them—usually with a long statue-like pose/stare and sometimes a bark

·        Food—his and yours—but does come to accept it if he doesn’t get your food

·        His kennel to sleep in - with the door open (see dislikes) 

·        Wherever you are sitting (see above)

·        Naps—lots of naps.  Many hours of the day are spent moving from one room to another to take another nap

·        Playing—he has the cutest little chihuahua moves when he plays, but tires out within minutes

·        Free-roaming independence over the whole house


·        When you forget to give him a snack after a walk—he will herd you to the kitchen to remind you

·        When you take your time getting his food ready—a little yip to let you know he is watching you and you are taking too long

·        His kennel when the door is shut while he is inside it—barks, pauses, barks, pauses for a few minutes but eventually gets used to it

·        When you call him—wouldn’t say he “dislikes” it.  More accurately, he totally ignores it unless you have a leash or food in your hand.

·        Privacy of others —if you are in another room with the door partially closed, he will use his nose to wedge the door open. 


Slomo was in a house with another dog before coming to the rescue.  He currently is not with another dog in his foster home, but he wouldn’t be opposed to having a furry friend, be it a cat or dog.  He has met young children.  He likes to play with them like they are equals, but does bore easily, and wants to be on his own again—part of the aloofness that comes with being a Shiba Inu mix.  He is a handsome boy that would love for you to take a chance on him.
