Facts about Shelly

  • Breed: Rat Terrier/Manchester Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With Brown, Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Shelly's guardian had to go into a nursing home so Shelly set about looking for a new place and family. She is about 4 years old and was very chubby, however, she looks much better and only has a couple of pounds to go before she is at her ideal weight. Being under careful supervision and good food has made a lot of difference in her energy level, health and ability to get around. Shelly never wants to be called "Dumpy" again.

Shelly has a great personality and has been very adaptable to her foster's living situation with 5 dogs and a cat. She loves to go for walks and has developed a taste for playing with the other dogs. Shelly loves to cuddle! and she loves people! Shelly also loves to be outside and likes to ride in the car. She will make someone a wonderful little companion! She will require a fenced yard to keep her safe and a family that will help her stay healthy.

About New Digs for Dogs

About Our Rescue Group...

Our agency has over 50 years of combined experience volunteering with rescues and shelters and we have excellent resources for helping dogs to find their best home yet and their last home -- forever! There is no better reward than a dog meeting his new family for the first time and knowing he has at last found a real home. When we receive pictures of him months later with a relaxed face or having fun...that's motivation to keep doing what we love...we're selfish that way!

We foster all of our dogs in great homes until the day they are ready to meet their new owners.

Our dogs are current on all vaccines and will be spayed or neutered prior to going to their new digs. We always try to do home visits to make sure our dog is the best choice for a potential adopter and we do check references! We want to make sure our pups are placed in an environment conducive to their needs and will fit into your lifestyle. Most times we do require a fenced yard but we have made exceptions for the right home. Contact us for an adoption application and we'll be happy to dig one out for you.

We are a registerd non-profit.

Our Adoption Process...

We require a potential adopter to complete an application that includes vet references and information on the type of dog owner you have been in the past. Most times we require a fenced yard as most our dogs have been strays and we want them to remain in secure loving forever homes. We do home visits when possible. We also reserve the right to refuse an adopter that we feel might not be a good match for a particular dog.

Our adoption fee is normally $125, however, there are times when it might be higher.
