If there is ever a contest for having the most expressive face, Sheba is definitely in the running for one of the top prizes! This pretty girl is a cuddle bug who ADORES her people and wants to be with them as much as pawssible. Of course, her sweet face and her lovely demeanor just makes her even more irresistible. This young girl is playful with her canine playmates, and she is friendly to other dogs she meets out on walks. Although still being a pup herself, Sheba seems to have the innate understanding to be ever so gentle with the human children she has encountered. This beautiful girl can be stressed when left alone, though having another mature canine companion may help ease her anxiety and show her the ropes of navigating the busy human world. Sheba will do well in a home where her people will shower her with affection, teach her the necessities to be the pyrfect girl with consistent pawsitive reinforcement, and build up her confidence with love. If you are willing to open your heart and home to this sweet girl, we are pawsitive that Sheba will mature into your most wonderful companion!

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102
Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
