Wheaten Terrier

Shelby is a 3 year old Wheaten Terrier/Boxer mix.  She was born at NCCR (see her baby pic and mom's pic ).   Shelby is house trained, enjoys playing fetch, going for jogs, belly rubs and laying in the sun.   She loves peanut butter and bacon too! 

We were told that Shelby had a fear of loud noises such as fireworks/gunshots, however she has done fine at the Rescue even with the 4th of July fireworks in the neighborhood. She got nervous like many of the other dogs; she just needs a quiet spot to hang out until the noise is over.  

Shelby would love to have a family of her again, however she needs to be your one and only.  While she gets along with many dogs at the Rescue for play time, she doesn't want to share her home with them.  She will chase cats, so a feline free environment it probably best. The ideal home for Shelby would be an quieter adult home where she is given time to adjust, settle in and show you what a great companion she can be!

Shelby is spayed, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $190.00.  
She is kindly sponsored by Leanne DiNicola.  Thank you!!

 If you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an adoption application which you'll find under each dog's photo. Here is the link to the gallery of dogs waiting for homes. http://www.caninerescue.org/available-pets/   We do adopt out of state, however we do not transport or ship dogs.  Potential adopter must be able and willing to travel to the Rescue to meet the dog they are interested in.  

*PLEASE double check all of the phone numbers that you provide as if they are incorrect, we will be unable to process your application.  Please also let your references know that someone from NCCR will be calling them. Most adoption team members call from their personal phone so advise your references that there may be an unknown number or a private number calling them.
