This gorgeous 2-3 year-old Shepherd/Lab mix female is Shyla. She found herself homeless at a rural county dog shelter so made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could enjoy life in a foster home while searching for a permanent new home. Shyla is one of the kindest, most gentle dogs we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. She loves meeting new people and has the potential to be a great therapy dog. Shyla was adopted from us almost immediately upon her arrival but was an only dog in her adoptive home and it was found that she suffered from separation anxiety when left alone. She does fine in a crate in her foster home since she is around other dogs and has shown no signs of separation anxiety in the presence of canine companions. We are looking for a home for her where there are other dogs in the home as well as humans who do not work long days outside of the home. Shyla gets along great with other dogs, has nice leash and crate manners, and will pick up the house rules quickly in her new home. She also knows some commands and will eagerly sit for a treat. Shyla weighs about 58 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Shyla. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
