Brief Bio:

Meet Dodo! Dodo was surrendered when his owners could no longer care of him after he has gone blind. Poor Dodo was doing his best to get use to his new life and all the adjustments he will have to go through. Dodo is a sweet boy who is good with dogs and people. He loves to lay down with his legs stretched out or get his belly rubbed. Due to Dodos blindness sometimes it will take him a few days to get use to a new area so we are looking for a home that understands that and will have the patience to bypass those days with him. Dodo would do best in a home that will not leave him alone for extended period of time. We are hoping for a breed savvy home or someone who is well familiar with the breed as well. Dodo is patiently waiting!


Dodo originally entered our lives as a foster only 8 months ago. We quickly fell in love with him and could tell how comfortable he was with us after bouncing around multiple homes since arriving; it was an easy decision to adopt him into our family. We are happy to report that Dodo’s glaucoma has stabilized and it is unmistakable that he is feeling much better. Often we forget that he is blind at all! You can find us on the weekends exploring the Bay Area and on Instagram at @dodotheshiba. Our journey with Dodo may have just begun, but he has already made a lifelong impact to our family.
