Lovable Shelby came to the rescue when our wonderful volunteers discovered him in an animal shelter.

If we had to describe Shelby in just one word, that word would be sweet!   He adores affection and loves having his belly rubbed and his ears scratched.  He’ll greet you excitedly when you come home and will soak up all the attention you’re willing to give.

He was a bit shaken upon first arriving in his new foster home but settled in quickly. This poor boy was suffering from an ear infection and a skin condition that are being treated with baths and medication, yet he hasn’t let these troubles get to him. Shelby has a delightful temperament.  He’s constantly smiling and his tail never stops wagging!

His foster mom reports Shelby is well-mannered and easy to have around. He is quiet and doesn’t bark, and is always friendly with everyone. He likes to be in the same room with you so he can take advantage of any petting or scratching he can get, but he doesn’t mind exploring the house on his own. He enjoys going for walks and has an extra pep in his step when he’s outside. His foster family is working on teaching him leash etiquette.

Shelby loves car rides. He’ll jump in the car as soon as you open the door! He likes to stick his nose out the window to catch all the scents along the way. He enjoys playing tug with his toys and chasing a tennis ball, though he’d rather keep the ball than bring it back. He’s housebroken, and sleeps comfortably on a yoga mat beside the bed at night.

This gentle, sweet-natured boy always has the happiest look on his face. We can’t resist that smile and you won’t be able to either!
