Selma was rescued from a high kill shelter in San Antonio, TX in January 2016. She was so afraid and alone. She was picked up as a stray and, she knew she would be killed and that no one would come for her. You see, we believe Selma was abused by her previous owner and they probably didn't want her anymore or didn't care enough to spend time looking for her. We are so thankful we saved her!! It was obvious within just a short time at our home that she was someone's dog. They just didn't love her enough to go bail her out of the shelter. Selma is a little-bitty, beautiful, smart, fun, playful and energetic girl. We saw that within just a few days of being at our house. She is about 4 years old and mature beyond her years, but very young at heart and extremely intelligent! Selma knows 'sit' and willingly does so when she wants a treat! She also knows 'no' and listens very well. She is also crate trained, house trained and prefers to be loose in the house, although we recommend crating her when she is alone for long periods or unsupervised. Selma is a pocket-shepherd mix! She is the size of a beagle and weighs only about 25-30 pounds. Because Selma was likely abused before she was picked up as a stray, we recommend her new family have no toddler age children. Despite Selma's past, she has a very playful side and loves people who will play with her. Selma loves to run through the house, grunting, and playing with toys. Squeak toys are her favorite but, she also enjoys a relaxing chew on a Nylabone. She enjoys being near people and longs for human contact. She mostly just wants to know she isn't alone and is safe in her environment. ��%BD��%BD%BD��%BD��%BD%BD%BD%81S Selma is also crate trained and goes willingly into her crate at meal time and for treats. She is house trained, too. Selma is dog and cat friendly but, needs to be introduced properly due to her fear of new friends. Selma is also leash trained and knows her name, and comes running when called! Selma would LOVE a fenced yard since she is somewhat fearful and timid. A fenced yard would offer her security and help her gain her confidence. We would recommend not leaving her off leash for a while in the beginning and then, progressing to a long line attached to her collar when allowing her to roam free in her yard. Selma's only requirements include: prior dog experience and a fenced yard, being committed to giving her the best life, people willing to move slow and speak softly in order to help gain her confidence and trust, loving her forever, and being her best friend. Please email or call if you are interested in adopting Selma and forever making her a part of your family. We require an adoption application, references, home check and adoption contract. Her adoption fee is $225, and she is up to date on vaccinations, HW negative and taking preventative, dewormed, spayed, and microchipped. Each adoption is considered on a case-by-case basis, depending on the dog and their requirements as well as the family and their circumstances. NO TEXT MESSAGES please!!
