Regular readers will remember the story of Shelby, one of Homeward Bound’s more difficult rescues.
Not because she was sick, or old, or broken – at least not physically.
But there was something very broken about her ability to relate to people, other dogs, or even a human touch. You can read about her here.
Maybe that’s why Chris – one of Homeward Bound’s talented trainers – took such a loving to her. Over the course of a year, she and her husband patiently worked with Shelby. In the same amount of time it took for the Memorial Garden to take shape – Shelby blossomed too.
Last weekend -Shelby was finally able to go home. Happy girl.
It is not the end of her story. Shelby may always need special attention to feel safe and secure. But she has found her fur-ever home, and a family devoted to her healing. And that is cause for special celebration. Happy homecoming, Shelby! Come back and visit us in the Garden. 🙂

Congrats “Red Shelby!” I always thought that if she had thumbs she would happily take herself in and out to the exercise yards. Enjoy your furever home.
I love a happy ending – good luck Shelby.
Don’t we all! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Hurray for Shelby and Family!! Thanks for visiting 🙂
Such a beautiful story and although I was also thinking “happy ending” it’s really a happy beginning for sweet Shelby.
That is so true – and well put! Thank you, Cathy!

How amazing for Shelby and well done to everyone getting her to the point that she could be re-homed. Such incredibly valuable work you are doing!
Thank you!. P.S…I LOVE the Gremlin! 🙂
Hooray! I loved the other post about Shelby, the weed who was really a flower, and I’m so glad she has a forever home. “A weed is only a flower in the wrong place.”
She’s in the right place now! Loved your post on light and shadow. You’re such a talent on so many fronts.
This warmed my heart. What a pretty girl. I’m so glad Shelby found her happy place, and the people at Homeward Bound showed her the way.
Thank you, Kim! You work fast. One of our coordinators should be in touch with you shortly 🙂 We appreciate any help!
