Like her name suggests, Shy was, well, shy in the shelter setting. She blustered a bit to hide her fear, but a foster saw through it and took Shy home. In her foster home, Shy has flourished! She is politely friendly with people and great with the 4 other dogs in her home. If you're looking for a striking looking 4-legged friend (it's hard to see in these photos, but Shy is a red merle color) who would do great as a sidekick for another dog, call 706-613-3540 to arrange a time to meet her!

Update from Shy's foster: Shy has been with me for about two months and this little girl has come a long way! She had some crate issue which we were able to work through within a couple of days and she can be reactive around strangers but does well when the introduction is slow and involves chicken 😂. She loves her people and is a certified Velcro dog 😍. She's dog friendly but reactive on leash which we've been working on. She met my neighbor's two children (8 and 13) yesterday and did amazing with them. She loves chasing balls and snuggling! Shy is crazy smart has a good bit of energy which she loves to expend by playing with my three dogs and chasing her ball
