About Shelly

"I am black and tan with natural ears. My tail is docked. I am about 50 lbs. My foster mom says I am an amazing sweet and smart little girl. I am 1 year old. I must go to a home with a fully fenced yard and no invisible fence."

"I live with 4 other dobies and I fits perfectly with all of them. I play and play all day. I am house trained. My foster mom 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 foster parents. I love to sit on the chair with my foster mom 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, then I collapse into a nap." She is the biggest cuddle baby ever with the puppy soft skin.

Shelly had a tough start in life without being socialized or fed. She came starved yet she does not 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. Shelly would do best in an adult only home. 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.
