Shelia loves new adventures! She enjoys running around her foster's yard, sniffing new things and meeting dogs on walks, and getting treats! Shelia is truly up for anything new. She is timid around people, but she has recently been showing that she loves pets and will wag her tail while she's getting butt rubs!

Shelia is an independent girl who does need some positive influence on her house manners. She jumps when she gets excited and likes to counter surf and chew on stuff, but she is also food motivated and redirectable, so a patient family can definitely help her break those habits! When you're not home, Shelia is content to hang out in her crate and does well there when her fosters are away.

A family that is willing to help her with her training, take her on walks, and allows her to be her independent self will be lucky to add this perfectly compact little personality to their family!
