Meet Sheba, a gorgeous Dutch Shepherd mix waiting for her forever home. Sheba is 2-and-a-half years old and weighs 60 pounds with brindle coat. Unfortunately, Sheba was not treated very well in the first round of life, so it takes a few minutes for her to warm up to strangers. When she has become comfortable however, she is an affectionate little pooch who loves to be scratched and doted on. She would love to go to a calm home where she can acclimate to a new and wonderful life. She’d prefer a home where all the kids are over 12 years old. She is at the Russell E. Dealey Animal Rescue Center, so a prior appointment is necessary to meet her.
