Chibikoro arrived at ARK some 13 years ago when he was just a young pup. He’d been rescued from a place in Tokushima where dogs lived and bred at will with no real human contact. Sadly, this quiet, gentle dog is still at the shelter. Described as a “real sweetie,” Chibikoro is slow to engage with people, which most likely played a part in his not finding a home all these years. About 14 years old, he would make a wonderful companion, older animals usually do — even the shy ones — and Chibikoro’s trust barrier is easily breached through food. Making friends with this kind soul would undoubtedly be a rewarding and satisfying experience. Please give Chibikoro a home. Spending a life in a shelter is barely one, even if it’s as nice as ARK.
