Meet Shelly - Adoption Pending

Shelly / F / approx. 1 yr / 30 lbs / Collie Shepherd Mix / Mississauga

Meet Shelly! Shelly’s foster mom describes her as very intelligent, gentle, loving and a quick learner. New to life in a family home, Shelly is still learning how to “dog” but is making strides each day! With her trusted people, she an extremely loving, cuddly and a loyal companion who adores affection and loves to crawl up into your lap. With new people, especially men, Shelly can be nervous at first but with proper introductions and a bit of time and space, she warms up quickly. Shelly sometimes goes to work with her foster mom and does great!

Shelly’s ideal family will live in a detached house and have the time and patience to continue her training. She is extremely agile and would enjoy a backyard with a high fenced in yard in addition to regular walkies, however provided she receives adequate exercise, a yard is not necessary. Shelly would prefer a home with respectful kids old enough to understand dog etiquette and would love another dog pal to keep her company. She does very well with her two canine fosters siblings, and would also do well with a dog savvy cat. Though she will sometimes go in for a curious sniff, she is relatively uninterested in her foster kitty sibling.

Shelly is medium energy and would do best with a 20-30 min walk before work and a 30-45 min walk after work plus backyard playtime and potty breaks. She walks very well on the leash and loves to go out in any weather– especially if she’s allowed to bounce around in the snow! She does not tug or pull and does not react to other people or animals on the streets.

Shelly is very food motivated and enjoys training and obedience exercises. True to her breed, she is a very smart girl and would like a family who will engage her mind via ongoing training, puzzle toys and perhaps even agility exercises. She is currently learning basic commands such as stay, come, sit, and down and she is making major improvements every day.

Shelly has not spent much time alone as someone is usually home or she goes to work with her foster mom. When left alone her crate though she will cry loudly and needs some support to help her learn it’s okay to be alone. She has not yet earned free reign of the house as she is still very much a puppy and may chew on slippers or plants if not supervised.

She is doing very well with her house training and while her new family should be prepared for an adjustment period, she is mostly potty trained if she gets consistent opportunities to go outside.

Shelly will require regular grooming to keep her coat shiny and beautiful!
