Special Criteria What does this mean?
Heartworm+

Shelby was rescued during Hurricane Harvey and came to the Sanctuary with a littler of puppies. Now that her pups have matured and gone on to homes of their own, it's time for Shelby to shine. She is an extremely intelligent dog who catches on to training very quickly. She can figure out many different types of food puzzles really quickly. While she can be a bit of a wild child initially, her favorite activity is snuggling up with Dogtown volunteers while they read a story to her. This sweet girl walks well on a leash and has loved everyone she's met at the Sanctuary. She does have some anxiety, but that may decrease when she's in a home environment. Shelby is currently being treated for for heartworm disease. She will need to find a home where she can be an only dog and there are no cats, as she has shown aggression toward other dogs and cats. At Dogtown, she is working on sitting without having to be cued, going to her 'place,' and settling down quietly. Shelby was born in 2016 and is ready to experience a home of her own for what may be the very first time.
