Arrival: August 2016
Background: Shirley came to MARL as a stray.
Shirley is a smart, friendly girl that loves to be close to people!
Report from Shirley's Foster Mom:
"Shirley LOVES to cuddle! She isn't a lap dog, but always wants to be right next to me. She sleeps with me and loves to be by my side. She is always very excited when I come home, especially if I have been gone awhile. Yesterday she was jumping up and down like a pogo stick when I came home! Shirley has the perfect amount of energy. She is 100% housetrained and will even pull on my pant leg if I don't notice that she needs to go outside. She is very smart! She is an absolute joy and has a lot of love to give. I can't say enough good things about her. I can't imagine why she hasn't been adopted by now. She may be 10, but she sure has a lot of good years left!
It took her a couple of days in my home to really feel comfortable with me and now that I have had her for almost a week, her adorable personality is really shining. I took Shirley home because I felt bad for her being at the shelter so long, I didn't expect that I would fall in love with her like I have. I truly love that sweet girl!" -Ann, MARL Foster.
Based on our evaluation, we think it could be possible for Shirley to get along with other dogs and cats.
*Shirley is currently spending time in a foster home while she waits for her forever home. If you are interested in meeting Shirley, call 248-335-9290 to make an appointment!
