Meet zzShirley! Shirley is a 1 year old female Beagle mix (approximately 50 lbs.) spayed, house trained,crate trained, knows some basic commands, up to date with the vet, and is full of love! She is patient, sweet, gentle, and enjoys going on walks but is even happier snuggling you on the couch. Shirley has had a hard life so far-her owners are going through a divorce and the husband thought neglecting this sweet girl would be a good way to get back at his soon to be ex wife. Shirley lived outside 24/7 (rain or shine) in a cage full of feces, mud, and filthy blankets. She was rarely fed or even given water. Although she has had a terrible start at life you would never know from her sweet, loving demeanor. Shirley is great with other dogs and kids and would make the perfect pet for anyone with a loving home that's missing that final piece of the family.
