About me

Hi, my name is Shelby and I am young and friendly Labrador cross lurcher who loves nothing more than running about and playing with my toys.

I am looking for energetic owners who can walk or run with me and it would be great if someone wanted to spend time teaching me new skills such as scent work or fun dog training classes. I am not very used to being left for long periods and can get very bored, so will need owners who will be around to keep me entertained initially with the potential to build me up being left.

I am social around other dogs and could potential live with other doggy friend pending introductions, I have limited experience of children so I could live in a home with school age children pending meets at the centre, I find cats too much fun and would want to chase, however other small securely housed pets might be ok to share my forever home with.

I am looking for a family that will enjoy my keen friendly nature and will welcome me up for cuddle beside them on the sofa. My favourite fun times is play with my toys and involving my friends in the play as well. If you feel you have room in your heart for my handsome character, then please contact the centre today.
