Shon is currently in a foster home. If you would like to meet Shon, please email

Shon's foster says, 'First time ever fostering and I could not have asked for a better introduction!! He's the absolute perfect mix of playful and cuddly, and he will love you to no end. If you want a dog that will make you smile with his permanently wagging tail and then cuddle you when you're sad (or happy... or watching Netflix) then look no further than this slinky baby. He likes to jump on his hind legs and dance for you. He will melt your heart in an instant! He's such an absolute sweetheart cuddlebug who just wants to please you. He needs a moment to get used to new people, but once he does, he's very sweet. Gets along well with: dogs, cats, and gerbils.'

The person who surrendered Shon to the shelter told us someone gave him to them six months ago. Shon is shy and has moments where he reacts in fear. He will need a slow and patient home who will take the time to teach Shon that he can trust them. Once he settles in, he will be your best friend. Though he can be submissive, it is best to make him work for affection and treats. Shon is quite social with dogs, no reaction to cats, is kennel trained and needs to be in a child free home. He is very puppy like, enjoys to burrow under things and loves to run around with clothes. Shon was taken to the park where he enjoyed dogs and meeting new people but introductions must be made at his pace. He enjoys playing with a ball.

An animal behaviorist who took Shon for an R&R and has already started working with him has offered to continue to work with any adopter to help Shon continue his progress and be the best companion he can be! If you are an experienced and patient owner, you will not regret the investment!
