Sesame, a 7-year-old Basenji-Shiba Inu mix, was shoved by her previous owners into the night drop box at Simi Valley Animal Control in Southern California. Sesame was transferred to Camarillo Animal Control last July, but due to the overcrowding, she was scheduled for euthanasia.
Fortunately, Sesame was granted a stay of execution. The Jindo Project, a nonprofit rescue organization, recognized a special dog when they saw one, and placed Sesame into the care of a foster family.
Every Friday, i Love Dogs has been spotlighting a homeless pooch as part of our i Love Dogs Rescue Network effort to find them furever homes. I chose to feature Sesame because she escaped euthanasia and is a pup who opens up to people after just a day.
Sesame loves people and doesn’t bark unless she has a legitimate reason – she tends to bark when her water bowl is empty. She is potty trained and will go to the door and look at you when she needs to go outside. Sesame hasn’t had a single accident in the house. She’s up to date on all shots, and is microchipped and spayed.
The 4 (Paws)-1-1:
Breed: Basenji-Shiba Inu
Personality: Sesame is an adult dog who’s well behaved. She loves going for car rides and jumps right in the back seat when allowed. Sesame doesn’t beg for food. Instead, she sits like a perfect lady and waits for you to finish. She doesn’t stare, whine or beg. She weighs a slim 23 pounds and needs to gain about two or three pounds. Sesame loves dog food, especially treats!
Pet Friendliness: Sesame loves people, but not other dogs.
Contact: To learn more about Sesame, or meet her in person, contact the Jindo Project via its website or call 888-343-4364 and leave a voice mail message.
If you or someone in your social network becomes a hero by adopting one of our featured dogs, not only will you get a best friend for life, but if you mention that you saw the dog on our website, i Love Dogs will send you a brand new pooch starter kit, including toys, vitamin samples and other goodies!
