Shelby is a sweet 2 year old Australian Shepherd who would like nothing more than finding a new family this Christmas that likes to play ball, and has a box of treats in the pantry. Shelby is smart, and loves company and play time.
Shelby has most likely been abused by a male in the past, she is very sweet and loving but can be protective of her family. She does especially well with females but can have issues with some men. She needs a home who can understand her past and work with her or is male free :-) Shelby does get a little nervous at first meeting, but after a brief introduction she does very well. She loves the ball, has high ball drive Shelby is very active like any typical Aussie, and appears to be full blooded. She needs an experienced owner. Shelby has been to see the vet, got a clean bill of health, and is now running free with the other dogs in her foster home.
Shelby will be available to meet every Saturday except for holiday weekends at the DogsOnly adoption showings (click here for directions) at Petco on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot.
An adoption fee applies which covers all necessary vet care to include: spay or neuter (mandatory - no exceptions), rabies, micro-chipping and registration, all vaccinations (including all puppy shots, rabies, adult boosters and Bordatella), grooming, Frontline for flea/tick preventative, heartworm check if age appropriate and preventative, collar and 50% of basic training classes.
To learn more about Shelby you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or complete an online adoption application by clicking the orange colored text links at the top or bottom of this page. Due to time restraints, we are not able to accept phone calls outside of our showing times, but we always try and answer all emails within 24 hours. All of our young and adult dogs require a 2 week home visit before finalizing the adoption process. This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times.
All DogsOnly foster homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. None of the DogsOnly fosters have cats in their homes so we can only make our best guess as to how our rescues would do with cats. We rescue from high kill shelters and once accepted into our program, none of our rescues are euthanized. We provide for all their vet care, socialization and training until an appropriate home can be found.
DogsOnly relies solely on donations and is a 501(c)3 Humane Society. Our mission is to rescue dogs that most other groups are not interested in due to their size, breed, age, health or other various reasons, and to provide education resources for dog owners and those with an interest in the wellbeing of dogs. DogsOnly believes that no dog should be left behind.
