Animal Friends' Home-To-Home Adoption Program Presents... She She!
She She is a beautiful, loving, spayed, black mixed breed that we adopted from the Rescue League about 7 years ago She was about 1 year old then, so we’re guessing she is about 8 years old now. And I also found that her name means “thank you” in Chinese (it is pronounced “shay shay” in Chinese). She came with the name when we adopted her and we never changed it.
She just had her annual exam and vaccinations at VCA Duncan Manor Animal Hospital in Allison Park. The vet said she is very healthy and is in excellent shape for a dog her age. She weighs about 59 lbs. and is medium-to-large sized. She loves going to the vet – go figure! And, they love her. She never gives them a hard time for any of the exams. She also loves going to the groomers, where they also love her. She is just a very good-natured, trusting dog.
She is very well-mannered and has never had an accident in the house. She is very affectionate and loves being around people and is easily trained. She is good with cats and other small pets – just tell her to “be nice” and she will hold herself in check. I have a cat who was introduced to the dog when it was just a kitten. Five years later, this cat just torments the poor dog all of the time and the dog never turns on him. However, she can be aggressive with other dogs. I walk her with a Gentle Leader and control her well with that should we encounter other dogs on our walks.
When I had a house with a yard, I used to tether her outside and she loved just lying in the sun in the summer. Her black head even turned a bit bronze. And she loves the winters even more. Whenever there was snow on the ground, she would put her nose down into it and just burrow around like that. She loved chasing and catching snow balls that I would throw. You could see her laughing after she would catch one in her mouth and it would explode.
This is a dog that you can see smile when she is happy. I am moving and cannot take her with me and am looking for a good home to adopt her. I will miss her very much.
