Shelby is 5 years old. We bought her from a breeder in Indiana after we tragically lost our precious Heidi-Bo. For her first litter; she was exceptional. Very cautious of her steps, attentive to her pups, and very laid back as well. She is nothing short of a wonderful mama. She has since been spayed and is living the retired puplife. She gave us three beautiful litters before we decided to hold off on breeding to better our lines and work on conformation.
