Project Report | Jun 15, 2023
Meet Tash, a Shiba Inu with multiple ailments who was abandoned by his owner

By Peace Wanko Project | Project Organizer

'Tash” is a Shiba Inu breed who is estimated to be about 10-year-old, a grandpa doggy by any standards. He came to us at the Peace Wanco project on 10 January 2023 after being rescued from a public animal welfare facility, one of many dogs there who have likely been abandoned by their owners and could face the gas chambers if left unclaimed.

 

We do not know why Tash was abandoned, but we do know he has had a variety of illnesses, including kidney and heart disease, cataracts, keratitis, arthritis, and a collapsed trachea.

 

To ensure that he lives happily at Peace Wanco, we feed him a therapeutic diet to support his kidney disease, as well as giving him daily eye drops, and regular injections for arthritis pain relief.

 

So although he has many illnesses, we take care good care of him, and for a dog of his age he is full of energy. He loves people and toys and is always wagging his tail happily. When he is in his kennel, he spends his time relaxing and sleeping peacefully, but when he goes for a walk, he tends to get too happy and excited. 

 

Sadly excitement can cause severe shortness of breath due to his collapsed trachea and enlarged heart, so staff stop during walks to give Tash time to calm down and make sure his breathing causes him as little pain as possible.

 

Tash, who has many different illnesses, cannot do without veterinary treatment. He has joined our "Wandahuru” family (a word that combines “full of dogs” in Japanese,  and “wonderful” in English)  and lives with a smile on his face while receiving support from people all over the country. Please watch the video to see how Tash is doing and please continue to support his and other dogs in the "Wandahuru” family.
