Sheva was surrendered to a shelter in South Carolina from a home with too many animals and is hoping for a new start in the North.  So far she has been a timid girl, possibly because of her grand adventure before arriving at Peppertree. After completing heartworm treatment, Sheva escaped from her foster home in the south during Hurricane Michael and was on her own for two weeks before going to a shelter for two more weeks before transport – she has had a lot of change in the last few months and is looking for a patient home to help her continue to feel safe again. Sheva is a sweet dog looking for a quiet, loving and supportive home for her to blossom. She would do best in a home with another dog, and probably would be best in a home with no children as loud noises and hustle and bustle seems to frighten her. She’s working on building her confidence, and is doing better every day in her foster home. She looks to her foster brothers for guidance when things are scary to her. She rarely makes a sound, but as she’s getting more comfortable she will bark when she gets really excited. She would probably benefit from some training classes to help build her confidence, and bond with her new owner, but she has been the perfect guest at her foster home. She hasn’t had any accidents in the house, and has been fine left alone for the day when her foster mom isn’t home. Although she has a history of being an escape artist, she has not tried to in her foster home and enjoys running around the fenced in yard with the dogs (especially when it snows!) Right now she lives with two cats, and three dogs, she seems to be very happy with every one of them and shares her time and cuddles with each of them and her foster mom equally.
