About Shelly

Shelly -- I am black and tan with Natural ears. My tail is docked. I am about 50 LBS now. Mommy says I am  an amazing sweet and smart little girl. I am 11 months old now. I must go to a home with a fully fenced yard.

I live with 4 other dobies and I fits perfectly with all of them. I play and play all day. I have been great with house training and have accidents.  

Mommy trusts me and I have been great left alone at the house with the access to the full house.

I sleep and cuddles all night long in bed with my parents. I love to sit on the chair with mommy when she works or sleep under her desk. I loooves toys, tug of war and playing with lots of toys. Marrow bones are yummy and kongs with peanut butter. I am very much a puppy - lots and lots of energy than I collapse into a nap. She is the biggest cuddle baby ever with the puppy soft skin.

Shelly had a tough start in live without being socialized or fed. She came starved yet she does not seem to have any food aggression. She walks pretty well on the leash.

She is a little afraid of new people but loves yummy treats and takes them happily to warm up. She will need some classes and best if she is taken to places with lots of people so she can trust everyone and not just her family. She is very alert and smart.

If you think you would like to meet her and possibly give her a forever home - please let me know.
