Shelby in Henderson, NV

Hi, I’m Shelby. I am a female Black & Tan Cavalier. I am 10 years old as of June 18th and in wonderful health (maybe a tiny bit overweight – but we can work on that). I came to Cavalier Rescue USA after my loving person had to go into an assisted living facility that didn’t take dogs.
I am pretty submissive and I like my house mate, but he doesn’t like me – I think. I sleep in a crate. I am house trained (but may make a mistake when I am first with you, ‘cause I don’t know you yet!
I love to cuddle, take walks, and I like car rides. Mostly I like being with you. My foster mom says that I am a shadow ‘cause I follow her around and like to sit with her, or lay at her feet. I like my toys, and sometimes I take my foster mom’s clothes and hide them in my crate so I can smell her when I go to sleep, (my foster mom tells me I am a hoarder – she thinks it is funny).  
I don’t have a lot of teeth, so soft food is best for me AND I get fed twice a day, morning and early evening.  I eat Rachel Ray Real Beef. Pea and Brown Rice, a 1/3 cup each feeding.
I have been with a foster for a long time, so I am really ready for my forever home.  Please come get me, I love you so much already.  Shelby
Here’s what my foster mom says about me: “Once Shelby is comfortable with you she will be your shadow. She gets along well with other dogs of all shapes, sizes and temperament. She needs a home that will lavish her with love, take her for short walks, and car rides. She is friendly with people, but will flourish in a environment that is quiet.”
