Say "hello" to our sweet Sheba! At 12 years young, this gentle and even-tempered gal found herself at a local shelter along with another dog after their previous people were evicted from their home. Sheba was brought into the loving folds of The Furever Project soon thereafter (the other pup was pulled by another rescue), and she is thriving in her foster home.

Sheba is always excited to meet people, and she makes fast friends with everyone she encounters. She also likes other dogs and has done well with the dogs she's interacted with, including the test dog at the shelter and the 10-year-old male pup she previously lived with. (She hasn't been cat tested yet, so we don't know how she is with kitties.)

Sheba is housebroken, well behaved in a crate, and fairly good on a leash. She's also a perfect passenger on car rides, although she needs some assistance with getting into vehicles. Sheba seems to be hard of hearing, so her foster mom has been working with her on some commands using hand signals. So far, she knows "sit" and "stay." As Sheba is food-motivated and enjoys her training treats (as well as the occasional carrot or two!), we're sure that she'll pick up more commands in no time!

Sheba's foster mom reports that she's a pretty relaxed dog. She's not "in your face" like younger dogs can sometimes be, but she's always happy to be near people. Sheba isn't a loud dog, either, although she occasionally tries to communicate by "mumbling," as her foster mom describes it. (It's quirky and adorable!)

One of Sheba's favorite activities is taking a long nap on her dog bed or the sofa. She also enjoys being outside — whether she's just hanging out, or going on a walk. (Sometimes, she's enjoying herself so much, that it's necessary to coax her back inside.)

Sheba has sampled various toys, but she still hasn't chosen a favorite. She likes to sit down with a Nylabone or rawhide-type chew sometimes, and she also enjoys playing tug with a rope toy. She hasn't picked up any stuffed toys — yet. (She's keeping her foster mom in suspense!)

What it all comes down to is that Sheba (just like every other dog) deserves an individual or a family who will spoil her and shower her with love for the rest of her happy, new life. Could that be you?? If so, please submit an adoption application for her today!
