All in the Family


Wire Fox Terrier

Shelby's a nine+ year old rescue wire haired fox terrier who's been my best friend since I brought him home nearly nine years ago. Incredibly calm and sweet temperment, but also loves to play full tilt and has a genuine sense of humor. Has been a wonderful pet therapy dog in geriatric and hospice settings. Everyone thinks he looks like a stuffed animal, and I'm always stopped by people who want to meet him when we're out for a walk.He's kind enough to share his home and his dad with two other dogs, Abbey and Lucky. He displays great patience with people and other animals, even has several cats that he visits on our walks.Very smart, with an exceptionally large vocabulary of words/commands that he understands.

I'm so glad you rescued Shelby. He sounds like a perfect dog, and is smiling is almost all the pictures, so hard to pick one, their all great. It looks like you have a wonderful place for your dogs to run, and they all look so happy together. God bless you and your family and your therapy work with people that I'm sure appreciate it very much.

What a great bio for a fantastic dog! Wonderful pictures, smiling in each one. Your rescue resulted not only in a companion but in a best friend for life. Bless you and Shelby.

Thanks for all the nice comments. Since I first posted Shelby's photos here, he's been selected as cover dog for the August issue of Nashville Paw magazine. Great honor for Shelby, there were 92 dogs competing, and at least 91 of them were worthy. Will update w/ some new photos soon.
