If you are looking for a sweet, mild mannered, medium dog with a kind and quiet disposition, you would love Lady.

She is completely house broken and has ladylike manners. She gets along with everyone! Kids. Cats. Other dogs. She has a gentle and loving soul. She is spayed and up to date on all vaccines. She appears to be a very small chow/shepherd mix (?) but her foster family can't confirm that!

Her previous owners say she is seven, but we wouldn't be surprised if she were a little older. She has arthritis, but with inexpensive meds, she is a cheerful and pain free pup!

Lady is not for you if you want a high maintenance, high energy pet. If you want a sweet companion to add a quiet warmth to your house, please consider her. All she is asking for is a soft place to sit and a loving hand to stroke her. She will offer you love and understanding in return.

She isn't physically perfect. She isn't young. She is a little plump! (She weighs 72 pounds but should aim for 60.) She has heart worm which we will treat (no added expense to you). She does have arthritis.

But Lady has a heart of gold. She never met a stranger. She isn't pushy or annoying. She is a lovely little lady whose owners abandoned her at the kill shelter and whose lifelong canine companion found an immediate foster family.

She is now safe and warm and loved in another foster family. But Lady deserves a home of her own. (She gets a little lost in the daily rush of a super busy house.)

You can contact the foster mom, Kim by email for more information on how Lady can become part of your family.

About Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue was established in 1997 in order to save shelter dogs that need a foster placement.

We are a 501 (3) (c) non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible.

The reasons for fostering include:

  • Orphans too young for adoption
  • Nursing mothers
  • Mildly sick/injured dogs
  • Dogs that have been abused
  • Dogs that can not adjust to living in a shelter environment

Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue and a local shelter work together to place these dogs in temporary, loving foster homes. When you adopt from us, you are helping to save a shelter dog!!

Our Goal is to save shelter dogs in need and place them in good homes. To promote the placement of special need dogs with the help of adoption bags, grooming, socialization, and providing needed supplies. To pair the right dog with the right human companion(s), enriching everyone's lives.

Our Mission is to develop trust and love with a dog that needs to be reminded that many humans can and will take good, loving care of it for the rest of its lives. To then find loving homes for these previously abused, abandoned, sick, neglected and confused dogs. To give the dog a solid re-start with behavior, health, and trust. To spay/neuter our rescued dogs of age to stop the cycle of unwanted litters.

Our Adoption Process...

Some dogs are at the shelter and some are in a foster home. If the dog you like is at the shelter, please contact the person listed. She will fill you in on all the details.

If the dog you are interested in adopting is currently in a foster home, please EMAIL the individual "Foster Parent" noted in the description.

An Adoption Form Questionnaire will be emailed back to you. Upon completion, email the application back to

After review, we will be happy to set up an appointment for you to come and visit with the dog in the foster home.
If the adoption is appropriate, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract.

A nominal adoption fee is charged for each dog. This fee includes a vet check, all shots, any necessary medical work and medication, spay/neuter (if possible and appropriate). All of our work is volunteer. WE MAKE NO PROFIT ON THESE ADOPTIONS. This fee does NOT include those additional things we supply while the pet is in our care e.g. pet supplies, food, toys, grooming, training, etc. (plus a heck of a lot of hugs!)
