This week we’d like to feature sweet little Sheila, and she has a video! Sheila - Oregon Humane Society. She’s 1 year 4 months old and weighs just 36 lbs. She’s a tiny little thing! We thought she was some sort of shepard mix, and her face sure looks shepard-ish, but we just got her DNA test results back and found out we were way off about that. Sheila is 12 different breeds! Predominantly she’s 21% Staffie, 19% Boxer, 19% Husky, 8% Frenchie and 8% Cirneco dell’Etna. Now, I’ll admit, I’m around a lot of dogs and I’ve never heard of a Cirneco dell’Etna so I had to Google it. It’s a small Italian (or more specifically, Sicilian) hunting dog and it looks like that might have been where Sheila inherited her ears!
Sheila is one of the biggest snuggle bugs you’ll find! She loves to sit on laps, and more than anything, she loves to get her belly rubbed! She’s such a sweet dog!! Because she’s still so young, she can sometimes get a little amped up, so might do best in a home with kids who are a little older. She can be choosy about her dog friends so she’ll need to meet any potential canine companions before going home. We’re also looking for a home for her that has a fully fenced yard. Sheila loves people, attention, running (she’s on the Oregon Humane Society running team!), and she especially loves peanut butter. She does great in environments where she can be slowly introduced to one or two other dogs and absolutely loves to play outside. Going for walks and runs is one of her favorite things to do, but she can be reactive toward other dogs while on leash. While out for walks or runs, it’s helpful to have treats handy to draw her attention away from other animals. She may also benefit from a Reactive Rover class at OHS! She knows sit, stay, down, come and off, and she loves going to the vet! Do you think sweet, belly rub loving Sheila might be the dog for you? If so, please fill out the questionnaire at the bottom of her profile and someone from Oregon Humane will call to chat more about her with you.
