Shakira is a loyal and loving little dog who will happily go anywhere with you. She's a great snuggler and loves to be warm. Her owner became homeless and had to surrender his sweet dog to our shelter. It was heartbreaking for both of them since she had been with him as a puppy. She loves to go on walks and interact with other dogs. Mostly, she just wants to be close to you.
Little Shakira is in foster has been visiting residents at an assisted living house. She happily prances around all the folks at work while wagging her tail! The residents there just love her. Through supervised help, Shakira gets to accompany a few of them on a walk, very motivating for the residents to get out for some exercise.
There's a possibility that she'll one day be "certified" as a therapy dog so she can legally go to work with her care giver every day.
Very thrilled for Shakira! Still hoping for an adoption soon for this very special girl.
