Princess's Story...
Princess is a gorgeous 9 year old blue merle. She is adjusting to her foster home well; she is somewhat shy and although she gets along fine with the other shelties she would not be upset if she was an only dog. She is a calm girl, crate trained, walks Ok on a leash. Her teeth were awful when she came in and she lost all but three of her teeth during her dental. She will need to be on soft food for the rest of her life. We believe she was a former breeder's kennel dog as she has been debarked. She would make a wonderful companion and would enjoy a quiet home where she can truly be the princess. Fenced yard required.
