Meet Sheila (ADOPTED!)

**SHEILA HAS BEEN ADOPTED!** Pal's Place would love to introduce you to Sheila, a stunning female German Shepherd in need of a loving forever home. This magnificent girl is estimated to be around three years and is very large for a female, weighing in just under 100 pounds (98 to be exact). Sheila came to Pal's Place in late November 2020 from an overburdened, high-intake, animal control facility in rural Kentucky. Shortly after her arrival, Sheila started showing shows of being pregnant, and on 12/1, Sheila gave birth to a beautiful and adorable litter of perfect pups. She did a phenomenal job raising her babies, who have all found their forever homes, and now it's Sheila's turn. We here at Pal's Place have a soft spot for German Shepherds and have many come through the rescue. We can honestly say that Sheila is one of the most exceptional Shepherds that has ever come through our doors! She embodies the best qualities of the breed. She's even-tempered, affectionate, incredibly loyal, intelligent, and eager to please. Sheila LOVES children and is fostered in a home with them. She is loving, gentle, and kind with not only the resident children but all of their friends who may pass through the house. She can be a bit timid around some men at first, but she warms up very quickly. She is being fostered with two other dogs and gets along well with them too. A romp in the yard and a couple of walks a day are always appreciated but she is more mellow than most young German Shepherds. Sheila is well behaved in the home, crate trained, housebroken, and will use a dog door. Unfortunately, she did test positive for heartworm and Lyme disease when she first came to us. Her treatment for the infections was delayed until her pups were weaned, She has recently completed treatment and is now happy, healthy, and ready for her happily ever after. It's hard to find anything not to love about this girl, and she is a Shepherd lover's dream dog!
