A SUPER SWEET LADY: 11 years old / 79 lbs. and needs to lose a lot of weight

Hi there, I’m Shelby! I was adopted 3 years ago, but my family had twins and are moving, and they felt that they didn’t have time to give to me anymore, so I’m back with Mostly Mutts looking for my furever family! I’m already a total volunteer favorite and I hope to be my new family’s favorite very soon!

• OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS: I met some dogs at Mostly Mutts and only liked the other calm/mellow male dogs, so if you have a dog like this, let’s meet. My former family said that I didn’t care for the dogs I met while was with them. / Cats are a bit unknown right now as 3 years ago I was respectful of the shelter kitty, but of course a proper introduction would be in order. I also chased some kitties in a home I visited so I may initially chase a bit. If you have a kitty, we will need to meet and see how we do together. / I met a nice boy and girl around 10 years old at Mostly Mutts and loved them. My former family said that I liked all the kids I met while I was with them, though I don’t recall their ages. When I was formerly with MM’s, I loved a class of 2nd graders that I got to visit and kids around 6 in my former foster home. Best no toddlers that I may bump over and let’s meet!

• PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL: My former family said that I was a great dog and I sure have been a hit since returning to MM’s. I love all the volunteers and was a model dog for a new foster training session. They called me a joy to be with as I walked around greeting all the people and working the crowd for lots of nice petting! I’d love a family that has lots of time to hang out with me and one that wants to pet me a lot! I’m loving, sweet, and have a wonderful nature. Even though I’m a little stiff in my joints, I’m still a fun and playful girl. My temp. foster said I “have a big heart” and I’d love to share it with you! / Energy level: 3-5.

• SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY: I’m in the Mostly Mutts University program and was a graduate when I was with MM’s 3 years ago! I’ll be reviewing my commands with my trainer so they will be updated soon. My temp. foster reported that I know the ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘down’, ‘come’, ‘leave it’, and ‘place’ commands, but need a little work on ‘drop it’ LOL. She also said I walked well on my leash, demonstrated proper door etiquette and greeted nice strangers without jumping. / I didn’t need a crate in my former home at all, so I likely won’t need one in my new home. I’m doing well in my crate at Mostly Mutts and did well in my temp. foster home. / My former family reports that I am potty trained. I have done well at Mostly Mutts and in my temp. foster home.

• LIKES/DISLIKES: I love being petted, playing with toys (especially the tug and squeaky types), hanging out with people, and showing them that I love them! I was great for my bath, and I’d like to request a walk-in shower in my new home to make it easy for both of us. I think I’d like a home without a lot of stairs too. My temporary foster had a nice ramp for her three deck stairs and I did great with that. I’m really starting to love going for walks which has helped me lose some weight, which is making me feel better. Let’s take some nice walks together! / I can’t think of any dislikes but I’m sure I wouldn’t like it if I didn’t get enough love, attention, gentle exercise, and training.

• MEDICAL: I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped and spayed. I have multiple older lady lumps and bumps that don’t bother me, and I hope won’t bother you either – all just part of my charm. Since I’m an older girl and very overweight, I have arthritis and get a little stiff after laying down for a bit. I’m on medication for that as well as a good joint supplement that is good for all older dogs. Just ask about any of this. Please help me lose weight as that will be so good for me!

If you’re looking for an all-around great dog, and you have a heart for the older girls, come and meet me! My adoption fee is $299.00, and I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.
