A volunteer writes: When Shadow’s family lost their home, not only did Shadow lose the only parents she ever knew, she lost her 2 year old human sibling, and her Chihuahua best friend with whom she slept at night. It’s obvious Shadow was a beloved family dog; she’s friendly and social, housetrained, good on the leash, low key and alert. Easy to be with, Shadow enjoys an under the chin scratch (like a cat), showed off her ‘sit’ for treats which she took so softly. We’re told that Shadow doesn’t guard her things, is well behaved when left home alone, knows ‘sit’, ‘down’ and ‘stay’, doesn’t really have an interest in toys, and likes playing fetch with sticks. Adopting a “senior” is the best; they’re mellow, gentle, respectful, have used up their high energy in their younger days, and are happy to simply hang with their new family and enjoy easy walks and some lovin’. Shadow is a proven family dog, currently interviewing new people with whom to spend the rest of her life. She’s a fabulous dog and she’s ready to prove it to you. Come meet her today.
