Sheba is a beautiful Shepherd mix who was relinquished to the Humane Society because her owner was to be placed into the care of a hospital. Sheba lost her closest canine companion at the same time, a dog she'd spent her entire life with. With the combined loss of her owner and best canine friend, Sheba was very depressed and would not get up to go for walks or interact with anyone at the Humane Society.

That's when we introduced her to Ranger, another senior Shepherd mix who came to us as a stray. Sheba actually got up and wagged her tail. The next day, when a volunteer tried to take Sheba on a walk, she again wouldn't move. The volunteer brought Ranger to her kennel and Sheba got up and wagged her tail wildly. The volunteer took Ranger and Sheba on a walk together and Sheba showed great progress.

For the next week we continued pairing the two dogs during the day until it became clear that they were very bonded, and would benefit from being together all the time. Today Sheba is continuing to heal with the help of her out-going, joyful friend Ranger. They sleep in the same kennel and spend all their time together and are now looking for a loving home as a bonded pair. They are gentle, sweet and mellow.

In a sense, Ranger and Sheba fell into love. They have bettered each other and are affectionate. They will do best in a home with older children. Their bonded adoption fee, thanks to our Fall Into Love Promotion, is just $25! This includes their spay and neuter, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identifications, certificates for a free veterinary exam and more!
