Shy Shy


1 / 8


Retriever, Black Labrador / American Blue Heeler




4 Years and 10 Months old

Hey there, I go by Shy Shy, but my friends sometimes call me Pretty Girl or Silly - guess I've got a few aliases. My heritage is a bit of a mix: part Lab, part Blue Heeler, and all wiggle butt! When it comes to snacks, I'm all about the healthy stuff - carrots, apples, and peanut butter are my jam.

Now, I've got a little quirk - I can be quite the alarmist around strangers. You see, I bark as a defense mechanism, but once I've given you the once-over and decided you're cool, get ready for a smooch fest. My favorite pastimes? Sunbathing, rolling in the dirt or grass after some epic zoomies in the backyard, and playing with toy bones, sticks, or my beloved PB-stuffed Kong. Oh, and squeaky toys? Don't get me started - they're the best!

Car rides? Absolutely! Feeling the wind in my hair is a pure delight. Sometimes, I'll serenade you with a little snore, and as for where I sleep, well, I've got my own cozy doggie bed, but I won't say no to a spot on the couch or even the bed for some cuddle action.

I've been doing great, and I'm still as sweet as ever. Just a little note, I can have some allergic reactions to food, but I'm on a special prescription diet, so no worries there. Never had an accident indoors, and I'm quite the communicator when I need to go outside.

So, if you're looking for a loving companion who's as unique as they come, visit to learn more about me. I'll be here, most likely on the couch, looking as cute as ever!

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.


    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.
