Happy Tails: Kenji

Stories that make our tails wag!

Stories that make our tails wag! Here is an update on Kenji, who was adopted from MCPAWS in 2019:


Kenji is a very special dog. He was quite shy and aloof at first. If you want to get his attention, you need to leave him alone instead of showing him how much you love him. Most of my friends have met him and I told them to ignore him when they first meet so Kenji can be less protective. After almost four months, he is finally comfortable around me. Now he knows that I’m the one to take him home after playing, so he comes to me after he is done at the dog park and waits by me to take him home.

I love him a lot! He looks like a little fox (actually somebody insisted he is a fox). He is a great emotional supporter. Whenever I come home frustrated or tired, he will wait patiently to be walked and occasionally smile (with treats).

He loves a lot of things. His favorite toys are the ones that squeak. He would get them and destroy them to a point where they can’t squeak anymore. He also LOVES walking and nature a lot. He will try to get out whenever he has a chance and he cries a little when you say no. He has lots of friends at the dog park in our neighborhood. He prefers small dogs over large dogs. His best friend is the other Shiba Inu that lives here.

He is also a famous dog now on my social media among my friends  and family. A friend of mine drew a very cute picture of him that features three cute photos of Kenji. He was scared when we put a sweater on him and froze for five minutes without moving a bit. Then we took him to Starbucks to get a Puppuccino. He was also being cuddly by showing his belly.
