Shelby's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Shelby's Story...
Arrival story: Shelby was rescued from a rural shelter where she had been for over 2 months!



Approximate age / weight: She is about 10-12 months old and 40 lbs.

Personality: Shelby is very new to us, but so far a very sweet girl. She hasn't had any accidents in her foster home, already knows the sit command, and learned her name in one day. She is very smart and listens very well when you tell her no or call her. He loves people and is very friendly. She is good with cats and other dogs. She is great on a walk as well. We'll post more as we learn about her.

Forever home: Shelby is still new to us, but so far I think she would do great with a family. Kids would be ok, her tail goes like a propeller when she sees them. She does jump up and so having a basic training class would be good. She definitely likes being with the people in her foster home more than the other dogs, so she'd be a great companion dog. She isn't too hyper, just the right amount of energy...so daily walks would be sufficient for her.

Pre-Adoption Application::

To be considered for a dog, it is best to submit a pre-adoption application. The Pre-Adoption Application can be downloaded from our website - http://www.waggintailsdogrescue.org/adoptionprocess.html. Just complete the application and email it back to the contact listed above.

Waggin' Tails Adoption Information: Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue has a standard adoption fee of $175 for adult dogs, $100 for senior dogs (9 years +), $275 for small breed dogs and $200 for puppies plus a $50 deposit which is returned upon proof of spay/neuter at six months of age.



Our adoption process includes an application, vet reference checks, and a home visit.

We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check
www.waggintailsdogrescue.org for the dates of our next adoption events. To meet a dog in person, please see our event calendar for the latest information. Arrangements can be made to meet our rescue dogs outside of Saturday adoption events after an approved application is submitted (the application does not imply an obligation by the applicant or by the rescue group).



Please be kind to our volunteers who have made rescue a second job that they do in their spare time after coming home from full-time jobs. E-mail inquiries will be answered much more quickly than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.

Thank you for your support of rescue and your interest in a rescue dog!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shelby, a Northville Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Retriever (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Retriever (Unknown Type) for sale in Northville, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Retriever (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Northville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Northville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Northville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Retriever (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Retriever (Unknown Type) rescue.
