Facts about Shelby

  • Breed: Pointer/Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Shelby 5-6 year old pointer/lab mix female. Poor Shelby has had a tragic life. She was originally pulled from North Shore and given to a young family. Shelby witnessed horrific domestic abuse, and from what we understand was beaten by the same man. She had to be surrendered to another woman who kept her for 2 years and couldn't keep her because her son moved back home and is severely allergic to dogs.

From the trauma of what happened in her life our dear Shelby if in an unfamiliar situation is very nervous about strangers touching the back of her head, she is terrified of groomers, and the vet's office. However, in her foster's home is very good with all. She ADORES young children and stands in front of them if strangers come in.

Our Shelby is a little rotund (cough) but deserves a great new beginning.

About Happy Tails Dog Rescue. Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small foster-based, 100% volunteer, animal rescue based on Long Island in NY. We do not have a facility, so all of our animals live in homes, just like yours, with other pets, kids, etc. We save animals from high kill shelters and help local outreach groups who save animals from hoarding or abandonment cases. All of our volunteers actively seek new, loving homes for these animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

You can meet us by scheduling an appointment or visiting our adoption events. As events vary from week to week, keep in touch to find out where we'll be next!

Our Adoption Process...

All animals require an application and fees to help defray the costs of vaccinations, spay/neuter, transportation, boarding, food, etc.
