ONE HAPPY & SWEET GIRL:   8 years young / 71 lbs. & needs to lose some more weight   Mostly Mutts adoption center is open Mon-Sat. 11-4pm. Some of us are in foster homes so please call 770-272-6888 1st to find out if I’m available to meet during the week.  Hi, I’m Shelby!  I have quickly become a volunteer favorite – and it is no wonder, given my playful and loving nature as well as my sweet tail-waggin’ disposition.  Belly rubs while I lay at your feet are wonderful and my silly side really comes out when I play! I like stuffed toys, but balls and sticks are my favorite! Sometimes I’ll regrip if you take a ball or stick away or come to visit me while I have those - not in a mean way – in a “let’s play!” way, but the ‘drop it’ command should help with that. My foster mom says I’m a very young 8-year-old, and sometimes I’ll play to the point of overexerting myself with those 2 items, so please watch out for that so I don’t overdo it. And, as if sweet and playful was not enough, I am smart too! I know to ‘sit’ for my food … and I sit to encourage you to throw the ball for me too! I’m a proud graduate of the Mostly Mutts University program, and in addition to ‘sit’, I’ve learned the ‘down’, ‘stay’, ‘come’, ‘drop it’, ‘leave it’, and ‘go to your place’ commands, loose leash walking, proper door etiquette, and accepting nice strangers without jumping. My potty manners have been very good in my foster home. I need to lose some weight, so let’s be active and healthy together! I’ve met some dogs at MM’s and liked some of them and didn’t like others, so if you have doggie at home, let’s meet and see if we’ll be good friends. I was respectful of the shelter kitty that I met, so, with a proper introduction, a kitty friend in my new home could be fun, though I may initially chase a little. I’m such a friendly sweetheart, so it’s no surprise that when I met a nice 10-year-old boy and his younger sister at the MM shelter – I did great with them! I was also very sweet and gentle with the two girls in my temp. foster home who were a little younger than the boy and girl I met at MMs and I had so much fun hanging out with the second graders at a local elementary school. I laid on my back in the middle of the classroom and soaked up all the pets and love I could get from the students, and at one point I laid with two girls with my head in one girl’s lap and my paw resting on the other’s knee. I had so much fun, I wish I could go to school every day! A home with kids around 10 (or maybe a little younger) for me to love will likely be a good fit for me, so if you have kids let’s meet. Basically, I’m an all-around great dog who loves to please my people and be near them. Sometimes I stay so close that I tend to get a little underfoot, so just watch your step as I don’t want you to trip! I didn’t bark much in my temp. foster home, but it turns out I’m a bit of a snorer, LOL. I get a little stiff after laying down for a bit, and I may need your help getting back on my feet. I’m on a medication for pain and inflammation to help with this and getting down to a healthy weight will likely help too. I also have some trouble going up the stairs, so the less stairs the better for me. I’ve started on a medication called Apoquel for my allergies, which we suspect are seasonal. I had a benign mammary tumor and a level 2 mast cell carcinoma mass removed. The latter could re-occur or not, we’re not sure, so just ask about that.  Energy level: 4-6.  I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed, and my adoption fee is $299.00.
