Meet Shelly Shelly is a gorgeous girl who was dropped off at Animal Control. We pulled Shelly as soon as we learned she was going to be euthanized to make room for more dogs. Shelly arrived to the safety of our shelter on July 5, 2019. Shelly will steal your heart. She has a beautiful face, gorgeous coloring and her eyes plead for your attention. Shelly is a 3.6 three-year-old Staffordshire/Bulldog mix. She is solidly built with a big gorgeous block head and she's sleekly muscled. She weighs 57 pounds. It looks as if Shelly has been bred for her puppies and then tossed aside when she was no longer useful. Her face is also covered in scars, which us makes us think that even worse things happened to Shelly in her previous life. But Shelly doesn't wear the trauma of her former life on her sleeve -- no way! This girl is nothing but kind and gentle to everyone she meets, people and kids, alike. To see her take treats will break your heart. She's soooo gentle and calm. She lives for attention. However, maybe given how she was treated early on and the situation she came from, Shelly has shown that she doesn't like other dogs or small animals. She will need to be the only pet in the family. Shelly loves walking. She can be a strong walker, but will walk forever if given the chance. She will make for an excellent hiking or running companion. We think Shelly may be house-trained as she won't soil her kennel, but waits until she can get outside to do her business. She is very smart and it will be important to exercise her mind as well as her body. Shelly has had a rough go in life, but she picks herself up and moves on. She has a solid temperament and puts herself out there to be loved and adored. If you're looking for a young dog with a calm and gentle demeanor and want to open your heart and home to the best doggie companion, come meet our Shelly. We bet you'll fall in love with her as we have. Shelly is spayed, microchipped and fully vetted.
