Name: Shelby Age: 5 months Gender: Female Breed: Terrier mix Weight: 14 lbs Dog friendly: Yes Cat friendly: Unknown Kid friendly: Older considerate children House trained: working on it Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Puppy History: From a shelter in Kentucky Adoption Fee: $400 From the Foster: Shelby is an energetic puppy who loves to play! She loves playing with toys and tossing them to herself. She also loves walks or going for jogs. She has not yet learned the joy of just laying around and snuggling, but I am sure that will come with age.
As she is a puppy, she is still working on her manners. House training is a work in progress. She does know to go outside, but doesn't yet understand how to tell us. So if she gets out of eyesight, she may have an accident.
She is crated during the day, any time we can't keep an eye on her and at night. We tried to keep her baby gated to a room, but she can get over the gate. We give her a stuffed kong when she is in the crate and so she doesn't seem to mind her crate.
We haven't had her around any children. She does still tend to try to play by using her mouth and teeth, as puppies do. We have been working to redirect this behavior but due to this, only older or considerate children would be appropriate.
We also have been working with Shelby on some commands. She has master sit, down and shake. More obedience training would help direct some of her energy.
Shelby's perfect family would be an active family, ready and willing to put in the work to train an energetic puppy. With a little consistency and work, Shelby has the potential to be a very loyal and obedient companion.
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
