Shelby has been adopted! 05-13-2017

Female Shiba Inu /Labrador Retriever mix about 1-2 years old. Gets along with other dogs.

Most likely, Shelby was abandoned or dumped in the middle of nowhere, because she pretty much stayed in the same area waiting for them to come back. There were no signs nor posts of her family looking for her and, of course, she had no collar nor microchip. We couldn't stand the idea of her living on the streets and knew we had to help.

Now safe in rescue, this little pint sized cutie is starting to come out of her shell. She's a bundle of joy and excitement around the people she knows and trusts, but is very timid with new people. Probably only around a year old, this girl is big and small dog friendly and we think she'd probably be ok with cats, too, although that's just a guess. Shelby is going to make someone very happy and have you wondering, for the rest of your life, how someone could've let a dog like her go.

She will need a calm, patient home that will give her time to adjust and she will be an amazing dog before you know it.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
