When a breeder discontinued her program, Hearts United for Animals took in the last twelve Shih Tzus, all of whom were estimated to be between 11 and 14 years old. The poor babies had infrequent exposure to human contact and they were scared to pieces. They had no idea that something wonderful was about to happen. Nothing good had been bestowed upon them for their entire lives. Kindness was something they could not comprehend. As the only female of this bunch, Shelby is the queen of the castle. She is always happy and smiling, running about the big yards with wild abandonment. She loves playing with the other little dogs and is not all timid around humans, which is unusual for mill dogs. Shelby is just a dear, sweet, fun-loving girl. Like many of the other pups from her group, Shelby must take medication for a heart condition, but she is doing very well and it slows her down not one little bit.
