Facts about Shelly

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) Mix
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn

  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 11136968

Pretty Shelly was rescued out of the woods near her family’s home in Cleveland, Tx.  It was thought that she had probably been dumped.  Sadly, Shelly’s new family was only able to keep her about a year. Then due to the human mama's serious health problems the family had to surrender several of their beloved dogs. Shelly was taken in by Emmy's Hope Rescue. 

Shelly is always a bit uneasy at first, as she gets to know new people and dogs. Then when she reaches her comfort level she enjoys being petted and sitting next to her favorite human. Shelly has an alpha personality, so she does best with small dogs that have more of a submissive nature. She is fine around calm, dog friendly cats.

Estimated birthdate: December 2012

Approximate weight: 12 lbs.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Application
An adoption application is required, providing information about your family, as well as past and current pets.
2. Vet check
You give us permission to contact your veterinarian regarding current and/or past pets. You must have a good vet history, showing that you are a responsible pet owner.
3. Home visit
A home visit will be scheduled.
• To adopt a dog, you must have a fenced area. We will check it to make sure there are no escape routes. We will not leave a dog with you unless problem areas are fixed.
• To adopt a cat, the home environment must be safe for the cat. There needs to be a place where the cat can be isolated for several days until the new cat & current pets can get used to each other.
4. Trial run
There will be a minimum of a one week trial at your home, to make sure that the pet you have chosen is a good match with your family. If the pet does not work out, for whatever reason, we will take the pet back.
5. Adoption finalization
When we all agree that the pet is a good match with your family, the adoption can be finalized. An adoption contract is signed. You must promise to be a responsible and loving pet owner for the entire life of your new pet.
6. Adoption fees
• Dogs - $150
• Cats - $100
This fee helps defray the cost of vetting but by no means covers all the money already spent on your new pet. All rescues are completely vetted: all shots up-to-date, spayed/neutered and parasite free. (Dogs) are micro-chipped, heartworm negative and currently taking a heart worm preventative. (Cats) are tested and negative for FIV and FELV. Other health issues may also have been treated and you will get a history of anything that’s been done.
