Meet Shelby

Please meet Shelby! She is a Pekingese/Papillon mix weighing in at 25 lbs of cuteness! She and her fur siblings were owner surrendered to us in Bartlett, Tennessee. Their mom passed away and there was no one to care for them any longer. She is a cute, feisty, fun little girl that loves friends, toys, walks, rides in the car and all kinds of attention. She is a typical Peke in that she can be very particular about things, especially having her face and ears messed with. She is more bluff than bite, but she doesn’t like being made to do things unless they are her idea. We absolutely adore her, but we want everyone to be aware that she does growl (many times we think it is more fun to her than seriousness) and we do not think she needs to live with children because of this. She is a complete lap dog and loves to be petted and have the attention. She would make the perfect dog for an older couple with a quiet household and lots of love to give. She would also make a great companion for anyone seeking a little lapdog that doesn’t expect too much out of her. We know this sounds like a difficult place and that she is a hard dog, but she really is the easiest dog in her foster home. She does her own thing and loves to just sit by you and snuggle. She is housebroken, crate trained (but does not require a crate) and walks very well on a leash. She is nervous about getting a leash put on over her head, but we do recommend a slip leash for her at all times, as she can get nervous about new things. She will require regular grooming, which we are trying to get her used to with daily brushings and trips to our groomer.

If you are interested in this adorable, loving, young lady, please get your apps in as fast as you can!

We are a foster-based animal rescue and we thank you for your interest in one of our animals. Our animals are fostered in various locations in the a South and in New England. Our fosters and adoption coordinators are the backbone of what we do. Our fosters work tirelessly to integrate our rescue animals into their home, so that we can provide as much information to potential adopters as possible. In addition, our coordinators offer as much information regarding the medical and behavioral and personality characteristics as is known to our organization. Without them, and our extremely generous donors, we would not be able to save as many animals as we do every day. With each adoption, we operate a Pay It Forward program, whenever possible, to help other animals in our rescue and future animals in need.

If you are interested in one of our animals, please complete an application. The application link can be found on our Petfinder homepage under the picture. You may also find our application on our website at under the Adopt page. If they are listed on our website, their adoptions have not been finalized yet. That does not mean that we have not received several applications, already. Please complete an application if you are interested and we will keep you apprised of their current status.
