SHELLY / F / 1 yr / 18 lbs / Chihuahua Corgi Mix

Meet Shelly! Sadly, Shelly was surrendered to the shelter in South Carolina because her family moved and could not take her with them. This gorgeous girl has the personality to match! A sweet and gentle soul, she's already stolen the hearts of everyone she's met since coming to Canada.

Shelly is timid at first and will bark at new people, but warms up quickly if you give her the time and space she needs (treats and ear rubs help too!). Once she is comfortable with you, Shelly is a cuddly and affectionate girl. She loves to sleep at the head of her foster Mum’s bed, curled up close to her. She is great with kids and does well with other playful dogs. She is currently living with a dominant cat that’s happy to put her in her place, however a home with a timid cat may not be a good fit and she does like to play and chase.

Shelly is a playful girl, but it is evident that she has never had a toy to call her own :( She is unsure of what to do with them and would much rather run around the backyard chasing her human foster sister!

Shelly has nice house manners, but is a typical puppy and will need a family that’s willing to work with her on basic obedience (sit, stay, lie down) and behaviors like mouthing. She will go for walks, but is still very nervous of the hustle and bustle, and would prefer a home in a quieter, more suburban neighbourhood versus the big city. Because she on on guard while out for walks, Shelly often wont go potty, and instead prefers to use the safety of her backyard. For this reason, a home with a fenced yard is preferred. However, with time, patience and lots of encouragement, Shelly will learn that walks are something to look forward to! Shelly is not crate trained and will cry and whine until she is let out. She is mostly house trained, but still has accidents here and there. Her new family must be patient and able to work with her on this.

Shelly's foster mum is home during the day, so she has not yet been left alone for long periods of time. Prior to coming to Canada, Shelly had been living at the shelter for many weeks so we do not know how she would do if left home during the work day. For this reason, a stay at home mom or dad, or a family with flexible working hours, would be ideal.

About Fetch & Releash

About Our Rescue Group...

We at Fetch & Releash believe every dog deserves a second chance regardless of age, breed, background, health and/or behavioural issues. Through our network of volunteers, foster homes, trainers, and veterinarians, we work hard to find our dogs the loving forever home they deserve.

Fetch & Releash was established in 2016 with a mission of saving homeless dogs. We are 100% volunteer run.

Our dogs come from a variety of different situations and locations such as pounds/shelters, strays, and surrendered pets - both locally and abroad. We provide our dogs with the best care and a chance to find their forever homes by placing them with loving and caring volunteer foster parents. In order to prevent further over-population, all pets are spayed or neutered, age and health permitting.

As a completely volunteer-based organization, we are only able to find our pets their forever homes with the help of our volunteers and donors. Visit to learn more about volunteering, fostering or donating.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt one of our dogs, please fill out an application at Although we do our best to reply to all inquiries within 48 hours, please remember we are a 100% volunteer based organization, and many of us have full time jobs outside of rescue. We appreciate your patience.

Once your application has been received, a Fetch & Releash volunteer will contact you to set up a time to speak over the phone. The phone call usually takes about 30-45 minutes. Our priority is to ensure the fit is right for both you and the dog, so ask as many questions as you would like! After the phone interview, we will reach out to your personal and veterinarian references (if applicable), and your landlord (if applicable).

If we determine that you are a potential fit for the dog you applied for, you will then be granted a private meet and greet with the dog. If after the meet and greet, you would like to proceed with adoption, a Fetch & Releash volunteer will then contact you to arrange a home visit.

The adoption committee will then review your completed application and make a final decision.
