Shadow was turned into the shelter following the death of her owner. She was depressed and lying on the floor of the kennel floor. Being removed from her home and dumped at a shelter clearly traumatized her. When brought out of her kennel, she put her head down to the floor and made no eye contact with the volunteer. She was completely shut down. After a nice warm bath, she seemed to come alive. She has blossomed into a beautiful girl under the care of her foster family.
Shadow is a darling girl that is very loving and loyal to her people. She has a nice calm personality. She likes going for car rides and prefers that cargo area of my SUV as opposed to the back seat.
She gets along great with her foster siblings, a lab and dachshund in her foster home. She may have some Blue Heeler in her due to her grayish color in her face and body. She has very white teeth and healthy eyes.
She walks well on a leash and enjoys her walks

She did well with my neighbors cat (sniffed, but not too interested) she may have lived with cats in her previous home

Stays close when off leash
Likes balls ,squeaky toys and bones
