Shelly Belly is all about living in the moment yet optimistic about the future. She plops her head on my lap when I coax her over, looks up at me with her brown doe eyes, and lets out a sigh. A sigh of relief perhaps… the sun is shining on her beautiful tan coat, and the fresh summer air is blessing her senses. Afterwards, she wanders a bit, uses the bathroom, then finds a resting spot right by my feet. It’s not clear what her previous life was like, so it’s unclear how she’d do in a home, but if it’s anything like she is now, I think she’d be a big couch potato. Come check her out for yourself to see if you want a couch potato in your future 🙂 A volunteer writes: Meet Shelly Belly, the ‘it girl’ of the Care Center! I’ve rarely met a dog who draws love in like this smushy-faced beauty, she’s truly magnetic and every other person we passed during our walk commented on her looks, awwwed over her gentle demeanor or longingly watched her with an expression that said they wished she were theirs. Shelly moves at a brisk trot and follows her nose wherever it leads but she’s responsive and easygoing on leash and very amenable to all handling, though her tucked tail makes it clear she’d prefer to take things slow. She’s shy by nature yet eager for affection and happy to nuzzle into a lap or have her face gently caressed by friends old and new. Even a police officer on patrol couldn’t resist taking a few minutes off to meet our resident sweetheart, softly smooshing her face wrinkles as she gazed adoringly into his eyes. Shelly’s a lover not a fighter but she remains timid and uncomfortable interacting with other dogs so a home where she can relax into her comfort zone without having to share with another pup would suit her perfectly. A must-meet dog that I guarantee you’ll love, Shelly Belly is at our Manhattan Care Center, patiently waiting for you to bring her home sweet home.

08/04/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially in the behaviors outlined below) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful: Shelly Belly is timid with new people, though she shows good coping skills when uncomfortable. Shelly Belly should be permitted to greet new people at her own pace and to initiate interactions. Shelly Belly would do best with a slow approach, preferably with treats, and being spoken to softly and gently. We feel she will do best with an adopter prepared to allow her to warm up to new people and new environments slowly. _X_Anxiety: Shelly Belly has shown some signs of potential anxiety while here at the care center, pacing during intake and at the conclusion of her handling assessment, at times focused on exit. We have no known history on Shelly Belly, so we cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home environment. Shelly Belly would do best in a calm, quiet, structured home so she can acclimate to her new surroundings. _X_Single pet home/no dog parks: See PLAYGROUP.
