Hi, I'm Shelly

Status: adopted

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 1.5 years old. A fully fenced yard is required (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.

The perfect adopter has one big dog and either is working from home or retired with no kids and a bit anti-social. The less people living at the house the better. Shelly had a tough start in live without being socialized or fed. She is a little afraid of new people but loves yummy treats and takes them happily to warm up. She will need some classes.

If you think you would like to meet her and possibly give her a forever home – please contact us.
