Shaila came in together with her mother (nicknamed “Mama Oreo”) and 6 siblings in June 2017. The puppies were tiny and under 2 weeks old with eyes and ears still closed. Mama Oreo was a terrier mix, only a few years old and was an excellent mother to her furry kids.
Once the pups were weaned, she was happy to run around and play with the other dogs. She seemed to enjoy her well-earned freedom after herding and feeding 7 rascals!
The puppies were at the vet for quite a while as there was no space for fostering. This wasn’t ideal as one of them would cry when being locked up. But our volunteers would regularly take them for a few hours out of the kennel to play, socialize and cuddle. They were very sweet and gentle furkids, and even enjoyed playing with the 2-year-old of one of our volunteers.
Shaila used to be our most shy pup but eventually they came out of her shell. She loved to snuggle and run and play with her siblings.
We eventually found Shaila a beautiful home where she can now play with her furry and human friends!
