Greta's first home not working for her...

In my opinion this Mike and Dawn don't know squat about dogs...

Hi Linda,
Greta is actually back in our care. From everything you told us about her, and the short time David and I have had with her I didn't think she was going to be a problem. Here is an email from the people who we had adopted Greta out to last night....

Hey David and Lisa, it's Mike and Dawn. We picked up the Shiba Inu last night. I really want to say that last night was the worse night of our lives. "GRETA" was great until we went to bed. All she did was howel and bark and wimper all night. She also destroyed 3 of Dawns expensive plants. She got into the pantry and somehow decided that the cooking oil would be great to chew on and spill all over the place. After getting up and checking on her to see if she was alright, we discovered what she had done. She also decided to knock the garbage can over and spill all the garbage out of the can. She growled at Dawn several times. It intimidated her and scared her. She also scratched the 1 bedroom door we put her in for only 10 or 15 minutes to get her accommodated before letting her roam through the house and check things out. She pooped in the one bedroom after in the middle of the night. I let her out before we went too bed. We live in a very nice home with expensive things. After just last night, we decided that this was not a good idea. We just want too know if you could take her back. It's a shame because, I really like her. We just cannot have a dog that is going to destroy our home and keep us up all night with her action. One reason my wife agreeded about getting the dog was, is that she has Colorectal Cancer Stage 3 and she wanted me too have somekind of companion if anything is too happen after her chemotherapy treatments. I told her I would love to have a dog, especially a Shiba Inu, and just happens there was Greta, it's just a shame she is not what we expected. Please consider taking her back, we know you take in dogs and adopt them out. We are going to Saratoga this evening to stay at friends for the night. Hopefully you will consider taking her back and finding her a home that she won't destroy, and owners that have the time and patience for such a pet. We just cannot afford to have our home destroyed anymore. With us going away over night to our friends, we do not want too come home to anymore damage. Please call us as soon as possible. Mike and Dawn.


  1. Lets hope whoever adopts Greta next ~ understands Dogs and can give her a good home ~ Ally x

  2. so sorry to hear this, hopefully she'll fin d a new home.

  3. That is sad. Poor dog so upset and not knowing what is happening.

  4. Poor Greta, she is probably upset from being in different places a lot lately. She really didn't know where she was and was probably scared. Helen
