Pet of the Week

Meet Sheila! She’s the Heart of the Rockies Radio Pet of the Week!

Sheila is a 7-month-old Australian cattle dog mix. She was transferred in from Labor of Love Project in New Mexico, after initially being found under an abandoned house with her littermate, Simba (who is also up for adoption). This pair was on the euthanasia list due to a severe lack of space at the local animal control facility, so Labor of Love put the call out to see if anyone could help. We had the capacity to care for more dogs at the shelter and were excited to welcome in this pair. 

Sheila is still learning and growing at 7-months-old. She can be wary of new men but will warm up after a few meetings. She’s made other dog friends here at the shelter and is truly starting to blossom into a more confident and happier dog each day!
