Story: Shelly was surrendered to use by her owner
Shelly is a wonderful, easygoing companion. She bonds to her person quickly and easily, and just wants to be in the same room as her person. She’s never underfoot but always nearby. She’s not much of a cuddler, but loves a thorough ear-scratching and likes to sit beside and lean her 60 pounds against her person.
She loves people, cold weather, brain games, walks, car rides, and errands. Her manners on outings are outstanding. She’s a champ on the leash and everyone comments on her calm demeanor and friendliness. She is house-trained (ringing bells on the door to go out) and crate-trained at night and never has an accident even when left roaming the house for the workday.
She is treat-motivated and knows basic commands. We’re working to improve her response to those commands outside the home, where there are distractions. Occasionally, the puppy comes out in her; she is improving as we work on her occasional jumping, barking, and mouthing. Shelly needs to be the only dog in the home, but would be fine with older kids. If you want a loving companion, Shelly is your girl!
– No other dogs in her home
– Ear scratches
– Her person always at her side!
