Shelby – Adoption Pending

Once I held Shelby in my arms, I realized that she had been abused by her previous owner – either kicked repeatedly and/or harmed otherwise around her head.  Her ribs were very sore and tender, although nothing was broken.  The first time she wagged her tail in anticipation of seeing us, was another ‘red letter day’…. these were all little milestones, but very important ones to witness and experience.

Shelby’s nature has always been one that is low keyed and unobtrusive, even once she blossomed and learned to trust us.  She’s preferred to spend her afternoons on the back of the recliner couch in our family room where she can see everything going on, and participate when she chooses to.   At 5 years old, Shelby is an average activity dog, not a barker and would do well with either a senior, or a working couple.


She enjoys walks, and is house trained and crate trained.  She gets along well with other dogs and doesn’t seem to be bothered by big ones unless they show aggression towards her.   She also likes cats.  She would prefer an adult only home. Shelby has free roam here at the house – I’ve never had her make an accident in the house.  She prefers to sleep in the family room at night and is a very low maintenance kind of dog… sweet, and loving once she knows you, she is cordial and respectful immediately upon meeting humans and other dogs.

Appearance wise, she looks older than she is because of the white under her jaw, but adorable with the white toes on all four feet!

Her adoption fee is $295.  She has been spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped and flea treated.  An adoption application and home visit is required.  You can email us at to request one to be emailed to you.
