Like all our other dogs Shelby, a Gordon Setter, was a giveaway, free to a good home. There was the huge Bouvier whose owner was moving from the Rockies to Boston and we lived in the woods. Then the Keyshound/Cyote mix that belonged to my alergic sisters new husband and a handsome Shepard that came with a cabin we moved into, along with 3 cats and an African goose that we found on the highway. All beloved and remembered forever.

Shelby came to us as a 2 year old because she was too much for the owner to handle. Yes, she punctured a water bed, ate new car upholstery and chewed through a wood door. She could run and wrestle for hours without a break.But our first look at her, in those eyes, and we knew this was a once in a lifetime dog. At 4 years she started calming down a tiny bit, now at 7 she's still wild and happy and brings us joy every day. This is the sweetest most loving dog I've ever met, to both people and other animals.

Sorry about the spelling.
