SHERLY D 61928 WYRS OLD ACC INTAKE DATE 05-04-2019 OMG! Sherly is so adorable! Can we help her find a home? <3 A volunteer writes Sherly! This darling 4 year old lady is beautiful both inside and out! Sherly has a lovely smooth coat perfect soft ears one black one white a svelte frame soulful eyes and a winning smile During our outing she was content to roam sniff around in the grass and sit sweetly on the park bench beside me She was non-reactive and friendly happily checking out the pigeons squirrels and other dogs but never approaching canines or humans Sherly appears to be house-trained and did her business quickly after leaving her kennel and going out to the street I would love to see Sherly in a home where she can enjoy leisurely walks snuggles on the couch and of course well-deserved treats she certainly knows how to sit when asked and when a biscuit is in hand!
