Shelby is a 3-year-old Pit mix who was just rescued from a high-kill shelter in California! Shelby is now safe in her Seattle-area foster home. This gorgeous girl is so sweet and has a beautiful brindle coat.
Foster Update: Shelby is a very sweet loving dog and has been great with our kids. She is learning to just be a dog, play with toys and go for walks. She loves to snuggle up with you for extra attention and love.
Shelby is house trained. I am not sure how she would do with cats. I think after first introduction and Shelby knowing she is safe she would be fine with anything. We don't think Shelby had much interaction. When we walk she is on defense each step. Dosen't pull on her leash unless she is unsure of what is coming towards us, but tail is tucked under. She does fine in her kennel when we are not home. She does get bored so needs chew bones in with her. She is learning to play with toys she has no clue. She is also working on staying down.
ADOPTION INFO: $495, includes pull from shelter, spay/neuter, Rabies/DPPV/Bordetella vaccinations, heart worm testing, microchipping, health certificate, boarding, transport from California to Seattle, and any other unforeseen costs/treatment. This adoption fee not only contributes to this dog's care and rescue, but of hundreds of other high-risk dogs.
