PLEASE NOTE! Unless stated otherwise, our dogs and puppies are located in Arkansas, and transported to the north/northeast once adopted. We do occasionally have dogs/puppies placed in foster homes in the north/northeast. In the cases where the pet is somewhere other than Arkansas, it will be noted beside the name of the pet.
11/2/16 Shelby is a sweet little Beagle mix girl who came to us as a stray, along with her litter of puppies. Shelby had heartworms and had to be treated and has now finished her treatment. Shelby is about 30lbs and we believe she's about 3 years old. She is very loving once she knows you are safe, but is fearful until she feels secure. She never acts aggressively in her fear, she just tries to run away when she feels scared. There's no telling what she has endured in her life to make her that way. Once she knows she is safe and she bonds to you, you will be rewarded with her darling little crooked tooth smile which is absolutely adorable! It melts my heart each time I see it! Shelby gets along very well with all the other dogs in her foster home but would also be fine as the only dog. She is much more interested in being with the people than the other dogs, but she does play with my other dogs and has bonded to a couple of them. Shelby is house trained but will have the occasional accident if not watched closely. I have her on a feeding shedule and make her go out 30 min after eating or napping, and she does fine with that. Shelby needs a loving, gentle, and patient home with a family that can give her time to adjust. She will be scared when she first goes to her new home, as she won't understand. But I am confident that with the right family, she will adjust and will blossom into a very loving, loyal, devoted companion. Shelby is located in Arkansas and will be transported to the northeast once adopted. For more info, email email@example.com
