Single gal looking for love,  long term relationship,  Beautiful, full figure,  long flowing hair, loves long walks,  doesn’t matter where, affectionate, can carry on a good conversation, playful  and loves belly rubs.  Seeking someone with time for only her,  willing to take daily walks, must have unconditional love and patience to sit with my head in your lap or on your feet.  Oh, and I am a huge fan of peanut butter and nutella!  Serious inquiries only please.

I’m not your average lap dog as I weigh 110 lbs, but I think I should be in your lap or at least laying on your feet.  My name is Sheila and I am a Wooly Malamute. I have spent my life as a breeder for an Ohio puppy mill.  I love people and if I could I would love to have a home where I am the one and only and can spend my time with you.  I will lay beside you while you read or go for walks, it really doesn’t matter as long as we’re together. Because of my size I would do better in a home without small kids.

If  you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an  Adoption Application.  *After you have completed your application, you will get a confirmation that we have received your application. It takes a lot of time to process the applications, so we ask for your patience while we do so. If you see that the dog you were interested in has been adopted it means there were many applications for that dog and we did not get as far as processing your application before a home was found. We welcome you to apply again if you see another dog that interests you.   If you have a question, please email your question to It is much easier and quicker for us to respond by email as we receive many phone calls each day.

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.

Sheila is kindly sponsored by Sarah Vosz, Barbara Fox Nellis, Dave and Nancy Nuzzo, Lisa and Jason Weaver, Dawn Tunstall and Mark Zafuto, Barbara Nodes-Nokoski, Dawn Gillian and by Meg Thering in memory Ariel, beloved dog of Marla and Matt Abrams.
