Shilah is a sweet, shy female who lost her home through no fault of her own, but rather due to medical issues in her family.
This lovely girl is what we often call a “Velcro” dog – she loves her humans so much she just wants to be where they are. She is completely happy when sleeping at the feet of her owner, and even happier if she can sleep on their lap. She does great with all manner of folks – men, women, kids, strangers. In fact, Shilah lived in a home that provided daycare for young children (4 yrs-plus).
Shilah would do best as an only dog. She gets nervous around very loud noises, so she needs someone who will be patient enough to work with her on conquering fears. She is house trained and has learned to use a doggie door. However, she doesn’t like to stay in a crate for very long. Her foster mom is working on that. Shilah has a strong prey drive, so cats and birds are unlikely to be a good choice for “siblings.”
She walks nicely on a leash and has become a bicycling companion to her foster mom! She knows a few basic commands, such as “sit” and “paw.”
Shilah’s foster mom says, “One of Shilah’s best features is when she puts her head on my lap and looks up at me with her loving eyes.” Are you ready to look into those same eyes? Please say “yes!”

The minimum adoption donation ranges from $300 to $400. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is 100% tax deductible.
Prior to placement, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are usually microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis. Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
Our adoption process begins with completing an application on-line. A phone screening will soon follow, and lastly a home visit will be conducted by our volunteers.
We show our dogs at adoption events every weekend! Check our our website to see where we'll be next!
