Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, my name is Shady! I am looking for a calm and quiet forever home. I would prefer a home without children or cats, and ideally with 1 or 2 adults. I get along with some dogs, but not all. I am an independent dog and need a family that will be patient with me. I need time to adjust to a new environment with new people. I am good at communicating when I am uncomfortable. I do not like being physcally forced to do anything. If you verbally ask me to do something, I will usually abide. I am both house trained and crate trained and will go into my kennel on command. My kennel is my safe haven and is where I like to go when I need some ... (Read More)alone time. I do enjoy cuddling on the couch and tummy/ back rubs, but please allow me to initiate these interactions once I'm comfortable with you. I also like playing with my toys and I will never chew on any of your belongings. If you interested in giving me a chance to join your family please fill out an adoption application on or if you have any questions, please contact my foster mom at Thanks!! (Less)

And I really like it when she rubs my fat tummy. I am about 4 months old and would love to find my Furever Family!

PIease Read Before Adopting a Border Terrier in Texas
    Border Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Texas if they match your IifestyIe. Border Terriers are spunky, lively little dogs. They are eager to please and very friendly. Border Terriers get along with children, other dogs, and will do okay with cats if they are raised alongside them from the time they are puppies. Border Terriers cannot be trusted with other small animals or unfamiliar cats. Border Terriers need a lot of attention and should not be left alone for long periods of time. If they need to be left alone during the day, it is helpful to have two Border Terriers, especially if one is male and one female. Fences should be reinforced at the base because Border Terriers are enthusiastic diggers. Border Terriers do fine living in an apartment or somewhere with a small yard, as long as they get enough exercise.

    Border Terriers come from the Cheviot Hills along the border of England and Scotland. Border Terriers can run exceptionally fast for their size and can even keep up with a horse. Border Terriers can be trained to do tricks.
