Hi, I’m Shirley! I’m a mature and gentle dog who loves a good balance of activity and relaxation. I’m easygoing when it comes to getting in the car and love going for walks, which always gets me excited. I enjoy walking, running, and playing fetch, but I’m also content relaxing in the sun or in the same room with you, watching the world go by.

When you come home, I get excited and do a little dance to greet you! I’m also pretty good with guests, although I can be a little anxious at first. I just need a bit of time to adjust to new people and situations.

I’m good on the leash, especially when it’s just the two of us. Add another person, and I might get a bit more playful and youthful. Sometimes I might act like I don’t hear you, especially when I’m comfortable where I am.

I’m well-behaved with other dogs, provided they’re laid back and don’t bark too much. I can get a little excited or anxious when meeting new dogs, and sometimes I may even lay down to observe them. In the past, I have been a bit reactive so I dont get to meet too many dogs.

I’m quite sensitive and may remember past experiences, which makes me cautious at times. I’m learning to fetch and love rolling in the grass during our walks.

I’m good at adapting to new spaces and don’t need a huge yard, though I do enjoy one. I’m happiest when I have love, food, and plenty of walks. I’d thrive in a home with older children, a single person, or a couple. Let’s enjoy some quality time together!

Shirley was returned to Hart after her owners could no longer take care of her. She is in overall good health other then being a bit over weight. She is spayed and microchipped and is up to date with her vaccinations DACPP, rabies and bordatella. She also received antiparasitics.

Shirley is fully house trained, gentle and patient.  She is great on the leash, however can be dog selective, and does not like when other dogs get in her personal space. (Don’t we all?! 🙂   She is crate trained, but non destructive when left alone free in the house.  She would make a great companion for an older person or a family who want to add a mature but still active companion to their household.
