Shyla is a beautiful, gentle, 7-year-old beagle/spaniel mix. She was surrendered after developing diabetes, which is easily treatable with insulin injections twice daily. (She doesn't mind it one bit!) Her diabetes has also caused her to go blind, but she learns new environments very quickly and still loves to explore her world! She is such a lovely girl. She will make a great addition to a lucky family who sees that she's worth a little extra effort.
Shyla weighs 30 lb, but probably should weigh 35 lb - she's still a bit underweight.
Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label. Each dog in our rescue is in a loving foster home, where they can grow, play, and recover from their time spent on the streets or in a shelter. If you'd like to meet an adoptable dog, please fill out an application on our website, www.edcr.org. Because we are a foster home based rescue a completed adoption application is required to meet our adoptable dogs.
