Meet Siva

Hi, my name is Siva! I'm a PURPLE pawprint, which means I will fit well into a home that meets some specific criteria. Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Friendly, calm, gentle giant, independent, a bit nervous/udersocialized but warms to up people quickly
-Can Live with Kids: No history with kids - ages 16+ only
-Can Live with Cats: Has reportedly lived with cats in the past, but chased them. May be okay with a confident and dog-savvy cat, but would likely be overwhelming for most cats. Up to adopter's discretion.
-Can Live with Dogs: Possibly! She would likely do best with a male canine companion who is not too high energy. Introductions would be scheduled to ensure everyone gets along.
-Can do Apartment Living: No way!
-Potty Trained: Yes
-Bite History: No
-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: No
-Energy Level: Medium
-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: No
-Additional Information:
Siva is a big girl (125 pounds!!!) looking for someone who's experienced with livestock herding breeds. She's a sweet and calm dog, but can be a bit nervous sometimes - probably because she hasn't experienced much change in her life, so this transition has understandably been tough on her. Siva would do best in a nice quiet home on some property - ie. a farm, a home with a large fenced yard, etc. - where she can go outside as she pleases. She is getting a bit older, so will need to have a warm comfy place to return to once she's done galloping around outside. As a middle-aged large breed dog, Siva will need frequent vet check ups to ensure she's feeling her best.

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website ( or in person at our facility. We recommend calling into the shelter after your application has been submitted so our front desk can give you next steps on our adoption process.
