A Little about me: Hi, I'm Shelby! Pleased to meet you!
Not a lot is know about my past, just that I was brought in to Shelby County Humane Society as a stray. I had puppies at some point in my short life, though the Humane Society doesn't know what happened to them. I spent four whole months in the pen, and the folks there thought I was a super special girl! In December, a person adopted me for 48 hrs but brought me back because they couldn't understand my need for affection and reassurance while adjusting to a new environment. So I waited ..... and finally, in February, "Rockin P Rescue" sent my foster mama to get me out of there!
It took me a little while to adjust to life in a home, but I'm doing so well! I'm learning about going potty outside on the grass (it feels weird on my feet), and I learned how to sit for treats (I'm very smart)! I have become my foster mom's shadow, so my ideal person will give me lots of one-on-one attention! My favorite thing is snuggling! I'll even fall asleep on you lap while snuggling! I'm a playful girl who loves to talk, so don't be surprised if I bark to communicate that I want to play! I LOVE TOYS!! Extreme durability is the best. I still search for food, but my foster family is consistent with meal times and treats so that I let go of my hunting instinct and trust that I can rely on my next meal. I'm not aggressive toward people about food, I"m just super curious and EVERYTHING SMELLS AMAZING! I'm still a puppy learning what is and isn't okay to chew or eat, so please be patient with me!
According to my foster mom (and everyone who meets met), I'm a lovey dovey sweetheart, and I want to be your only pup. This is important because my prey drive is strong. I will need extra training to help me ignore cars, too (they look so crazy to me). I love kids and I do well around them, but they need to be older kids becasue I have high energy! I like to roughhouse and I want them to be able to play and exercise with me as I get older! I am a fast learner and I want to be loved on all the times.
If you have room in your heart and your home for a playful, snuggly, intelligent, soulful girl like me who wants and deserves true love, please ask about me on your application! I am ready for my furever home!
