Arrival Story:
Shy was rescued from a high kill shelter in Brooklyn, NY. We found her on through a rescue group. We got her at the end of November 2010 after we lost our beloved Yola. Shy was 3 days away from being euthanized when she was rescued. Shy is becoming a very dear part of our family although she still has to learn how to get along with Chloe, our cat! Shy goes to a trainer and she has learned so much.

Shy is a 45 lb. shepherd mix...Her tail never stops wagging! She is eager to please and loves to ride in the car! Shy has been very successful with her training. She will progress to the intermediate training class where she will prepare to get her Canine Good Citizen certificate! Good girl, Shy!

My Gotcha Day

Today is the anniversary of my Gotcha day. I have spent 3 yrs with my new family and it has been the best 3 yrs ever. In fact, I don't even remember my former family. They gave me up when I was 7 yrs. old...that's pretty sad. I love my momma...she is so good to me. I love just spending the whole day with her...and I love to hear her talk with her family....hearing voices lulls me to sleep!
I am a happy dog...I never thought I would be when I ended up in Animal Control almost ready to be put to sleep. Thank goodness for the Rescue group that took me away and then my momma found me. I am such a lucky dog...
I love my life...I go the park every morning to run off leash with my friends. I have so many doggie friends there. I have a new brother, Cody. He is on dogster also. He's cute.
Thanks for sharing my day everyone!


Many thanks for the birthday wishes

Thank you, Dogster, for my birthday gift of 25 bones....I shall enjoy each one sooooo much! I will post my birthday pic later today....I have on my pink princess birthday crown, my new Thundershirt which is one of my birthday presents, and my dumb-bell, another birthday present. My mom read a study from Tufts University Veterinary school on thundershirts. The study proved that dogs in a hospital setting who were very stressed and cried, barked, paced, panted or stopped eating, became much less stressed while wearing a thundershirt and even went to sleep! Since I get sooooooo scared of thunder and fireworks, I got my thundershirt! I will be soooo happy if it really works. I'm learning retrieving at my dog class and I needed my own dumb-bell so I got it for my birthday.....I LOVE all my new things!
Happy me....I love my family!
Love, Shy
