1 yr old red and white shiba
Kato is a 1yr old male, red and white shiba. He was picked up by the Brooklyn Animal Care and Control facility as a stray. When they found him he had a wound on his front paw and may have also dislocated his ankle at some point. The vet looked at an X-Ray and says his ankle looks good now and his paw is healing up.
He is a sweet dog with people. He seems okay with other dogs most of the time, but has had a couple issues, particularly when toys (tennis balls in particular) are involved. He has some guarding issues with toys at the dog park. He needs to be watched carefully as he can become aggressive very quickly. Though he has improved, he still needs work to walk on a leash. A harness makes a world of difference with him as well when walking. He's a great dog who is looking for his forever home.
