Hi future family! My name is Sheila, and I would love to report for duty as your little shadow for life! I am an attentive gal who loves to follow you around and keep you company no matter what you're doing. Wanna snuggle on the couch? I'm there! Go for a walkie to burn some calories? I'll happily stroll along! I get along with people of all ages (including children!) and dogs of all sizes. I am potty and crate trained, and look forward to learning more with my forever family at training classes. I am currently undergoing heartworm treatments and will need to be kept calm while I recover, but that will be easy peasy because I love to curl up in a cozy dog bed and relax to the max. What are you waiting for? Hurry up and fill out an adoption application today - I am excited to start my happily ever after right by your side!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
