Story
Sheila is an energetic girl who lived in a home for most of her young life. She was housebroken in that home and her former people described her as affectionate and playful. She loves toys, knows tricks, and does well in the car. Here’s what volunteers have said:“Sheila is a darling, laid-back pup who loves treats which she takes gently. We took her and her kennelmate to a yard where she engaged in lots of exploring. She warmed up and thoroughly enjoyed being petted.”“Sheila is a nice girl. We walked by noisy toy boats on the lake, and she didn’t even seem to notice. I sat under a tree with her. She was vigilant about scanning her surroundings and watching birds but did wag her tail and accept attention when I called to her. She sat nicely for treats and took them gently from my hand.”Sheila shares her kennel with another PACC pup and would like to meet any resident dogs before heading home to make sure it’s a good fit. She isn’t a fan of sharing her food (me either!), so needs a space of her own where she can eat her meals. She may also do best in a home without cats or other small pets. Ask about Sheila today!

Story
  This is Lyric, and I find myself singing, “You are my Sunshine”, when she’s playing with her ball.  She gets so excited when we go outside because she knows it’s “BALL TIME”!  Now, I only get to throw it once, but she’s off like a shot and does come back with it—but doesn’t want to drop it—yet.  She circles me in a little dance making sure I see that she has it, then waits while I throw a ball for another dog and she runs after him—she doesn’t want his ball—she just wants to make sure he gets it and brings it back so she can run after him again.  Lyric can be shy at first but she warms up and is very sweet and such a great dog. She loves touch and will indicate when a belly rub is needed.  She listens well and has had 6 weeks of training to help build her confidence at The Complete Canine...   She loves all the dogs, big or little—and initiates play with all of them. She will definitely need a dog friend. At obedience class she was sad that she couldn’t visit every dog there whenever she wanted to.  A secure backyard is essential.  She is also excited when someone spies a lizard and takes off after it.  She doesn’t need to know what’s being chased, she just joins in wholeheartedly.    Lyric is completely housebroken—never had an accident in the house, and she’s crate trained and sleeps peacefully through the night in her crate.  According to her last weigh-in she’s 56 lbs. and she is 5 years old. She has very long legs and (warning) can reach things she shouldn’t from counters and tables. She would do best with an active, attentive, family, prepared to offer her reward-based, loving, patient instruction. She’ll need doggy friends, for sure! Older kids would be good—I think she’d like younger kids, too, but she’s big and sometimes doesn’t look where she’s going, so might be too much for smaller children. I’ve never heard her growl or seen her bare her teeth.   We did her DNA and she’s got some great smart genes, promising an amazing potential with the proper guidance.  There are the three main breeds, Border Collie, Labrador Retriever, and Australian Cattle Dog, (making up about 75%). She does have some arthritis in her back legs, but it doesn’t stop her from running like mad and jumping 3 feet into the air to catch a ball. She takes a pill twice a day—very reasonably priced that keeps her arthritis in check. She loves her people, food, other dogs, and especially tennis balls!   To see this lovely lady please go to our website to fill out an adoption application www.tucsoncoldwetnoses.com   Lyric is adoptable to homes in Tucson, Marana, Catalina, Sahuarita and Oro Valley only. Her adoption fee is $250 with an additional $21 for PACC licensing. She is up to date on vaccines, microchipped and spayed.      *Applications to adopt: wwwTucsonColdWetNoses.com Home Visit / ID and Residence Verification is required.  Compliance does not imply or guarantee adoption.   Approval is the sole discretion of CWN representative(s).
