    Story

    Happy, obedient, playful and loving sweetheart looking for a forever family to call her own :)

    Shelby was surrendered to AARCS with her 6 puppies, who have since gone on to their own homes. It’s Shelby’s turn! This sweet 2-year-old was initially scared, withdrawn and shut-down, but in just over a month, she has transformed! She is currently in foster care with 3 other dogs, all of which are noisy little monkeys. But not Shelby! She is quiet as can be but tolerates their antics. She has never shown any aggression, not during feedings or any other time. Shelby takes her treats so gently! She’s quite passive, actually, and most enjoys affectionate rubs and attention from her people. Shelby is getting better on leash but loves going for walks. She enjoys chewing on her stuffy, loves just laying on the couch and looking out the window. She knows ‘sit’ and ‘down’ commands, and listens very well. Shelby is great with both adults and children, and would flourish in a loving home. All she needs is a day or two to trust, then she comes out of her shell and is such a lovely girl to have around. Anyone would be lucky to have sweet Shelby in their family.

    Quiet, house-trained, and oh-so-smart!
