    Story

    If you are looking for a sweet snuggle bug, look no further!

    My name is Shey and AARCS rescued me and my 11 pups from the cold back in February. I was thin and tired but the AARCS team and my foster family took great care of me and now I’m healthy and ready to go! I’ve got my house training down pat, sleep quietly in my crate at night, walk nicely on a leash and am friendly with all the people I meet. I’m a pretty chill girl and love nothing more than to snuggle! I am so good with cats that even the scaredy cats like me! I love my foster humans and am sweet and gentle with them. Sometimes I get a little eager for attention and jump up so a house with older children would be best. Even though I’m only medium sized, I wouldn’t want to knock any little ones over.

    While I get along great with the other dog in my house, it took me a while to realize he just wanted to be friends. He’s now my favourite tug-o-war partner but I will need to be given some extra time and patience to get to know any new doggy friends. My foster mom calls me “”selective”” and I’m not a fan of strange dogs invading my personal space without proper introductions. I’m not ready for the off-leash park just yet, but some training classes would be a fabulous place to start and I work really well for treats!!

    It’s finally my turn to find my furever home! I can’t wait to meet you!!
