Sweet, sweet Shelley is an adorable 12-year-old Yorkie who spent her entire life being mistreated by humans in a puppy mill. Until she came into rescue last year, Shelley's only interaction with humans was when they needed something from her - puppies!
Now Shelley is in a loving foster home where she is receiving the affection and positive attention that she so deserves. Shelley is a special needs girl as she is deaf, and because of this we recommend a home without small children as sudden movements can, understandably, frighten her. Shelley does respond to hand signals when she can see you, and would do best with a yard that is fenced, or with someone that can keep her on-leash at all times since she is unable to hear you calling her.
Shelley gets along with the other dogs in her foster home, as well as cats, but would prefer a mature, quiet home where she can relax and snooze her days away on a warm lap or dog bed.
**Please note that due to her age and the health risks with same, Shelley was not spayed when she came into rescue, and should not be spayed by her adopters**
Shelley is a relaxed, easy-going girl who just needs a safe, stable home to spend the remainder of her years in being pampered and loved. Could you be the lucky home to welcome Shelley into your family?
