Why choose me?

Shortcake’s Doggie-Day-Out 5/21: Shortcake is my newest shelter bud. Today we went for some nugs, a hike, a swim, and some quiet time away from the shelter. She is a GREAT passenger in the car, a super duper gentle taker of treats and nuggets, and is so silly playing solo with her toys. She needs an experienced forever home that understands her need for slow introductions with chill dogs, OR someone familiar with rotating as she is kind of like me- a lil picky about her friends!

Update 5/21: Shortcake has completed her kennel rest and is ready for her forever home!

Update 4/11 & 4/12: Shortcake has been treated for heartworms (received Diroban shots) and is on crate rest for the next month. Wish her well on her recovery! She can be adopted during this time, but needs a home where her adopter can keep her calm until she’s done recovering. She will need to be kept on heartworm preventative for the rest of her life.

Update 4/5: Shortcake was adopted but returned. She’s a sweet girl but doesn’t do well around cats. She also needs to work on her leash manners. She’s strong and pulls–especially when she sees a cat. Shortcake is still a great dog with love and good times to share, but she would benefit from some leash training and needs a home where she’s not around cats.

Update 2/7: Thanks to a grant from the Georgia Department of Agriculture’s license plate program, Shortcake is spayed and up-to-date on her basic vaccinations!

Update 2/2: Unfortunately, Shortcake has tested positive for heartworms. To learn about heartworms, including how to treat them, please go to the American Heartworm Society‘s webpage. For information about the cost of treatment, please speak with your veterinarian.

Shortcake is an adorable low-rider! She’s short, stocky, and super sweet. When I petted her and told her she was a pretty girl, she leaned against me enjoying every pet, scratch, and kind word. She’s absolutely precious! She was also as cute as she could be when she pranced and hopped along the fence with Bleu. He wanted to run, but she had her own style. Bleu was quite taken with sweet Shortcake. Come spend some time with her, and you may well be, too!
