Shelby was found on the street in the Belgrade area in mid 2021. Shelby has now tested clear of heart worm, is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations and titer tested. Shelby is good with most of dogs. She doesn't like every dog though. Sometimes she snaps if she is bothered too much by a dog. She will be ok with senior dogs, small dogs, male dogs that are not too active. She does not like cats. She has no problem with children but likes to jump up to greet them so she would be best with children 12+ years. She is smart, toilet trained, lead trained. She likes to be outside, likes to cuddle, likes beds. Sometimes she runs in her dream and sometimes she talks in her dream. As a result of being on the street Shelby is timid, she needs time to trust a human, needs time to feel she is safe. She let foster mom brush her coat 9 months after she was rescued. We are looking for a home where she will be the only animal in the home.

CRITERIA: We adopt our dogs to an area in England within a 3-hour drive of Cobham in Surrey. Any garden must be fully secure and have at least 6 ft boundaries. All our home checks are carried out virtually. If your initial application is successful, we will ask you for proof of ID, a video tour of your home and garden. Lastly, we carry out a video home check call.

If you feel you can offer the right home and you match our criteria, please complete our pre adoption form here: and press SEND. Please only apply if you are ready to adopt.

Home check and £400 adoption fee applies plus £25 for the safety harness that we insist all of our dogs are walked on until absolutely settled in their new home.

All of our dogs come with a pet passport, are vet checked before departing and arrive via a DEFRA registered transportation vehicle.

Think Shelby is the right one for you?

We ask each adopter to cover costs of neutering, vaccinating and microchipping of the dog. A home check will be carried out prior to completion of any adoption. Adopt
