Pet of the Week 

Shellie is a six year old Lab mix, golden in color and just a smidgen over weight.  Shellie was an owner surrender. (Family has been hit with some very serious financial issues). She is such a lover.  She wants to be around you whether you are going for a walk or just sitting watching TV.  Shellie is obviously house trained because she keeps her kennel so clean.  She did come from a home that had dogs and cats, so we think she would do great with both.  If you are looking for a dog that that would fit into just about any lifestyle than Shellie would be a great choice.
