SHELBY NEEDS A NEW HOME AND FAMILY PUPPY SHELBY came into the rescue in May of 2023 after her owner passed away and she was passed around to people who were unable to care for her. She is a beautiful and active, engaged and affectionate 1 yr old. . She has all shots and she is spayed. She is a happy dog and social with people but a bit reactive with other dogs. When I had her in May she did get introduced to Farley and after a few barks they were zooming around the yard chasing one another for the toy. Since she went home she started to show signs of reactivity and because these were not immediately and appropriately corrected, she continued to react negatively to dogs on her walk.  The current owners are just not skilled enough to get this behavior under control and have decided to relinquish her again. She has had some training as she does sit and comes to her name, but besides that she needs to get into a CGC program. She is black and tan and weighs about 75 pounds. She is spayed, utd on shots and affectionate. Leadership is what she lacks and the new owners much pursue quality training to make sure she is under control. We our trainers had her for a few days she was 90% better and was not barking at other dogs or people, but when she was returned the owners were unable to continue that training. She is a smart girl in need of a strong alpha leader.
