Don’t let her age discourage you! This Dobergal can run and play with the best of them! Shelby was surrendered to IDR+ from a shelter in Indiana just 4 days after her 11th birthday for reasons her current foster mom cannot understand. She is crate trained and seems to be housebroken. Shelby is a very quiet girl who loves nothing more than to be with her family. Shelby gets along great with her foster siblings which consists of a male and female Doberman and Miniature Schnauzer. While on walks, Shelby does pull on the leash at first but it is from the excitement of exploring the world. She is an all around great gal who is looking for someone to spend her years with. She may not be a 1966 Shelby Cobra SS but she is a beautiful classic!
