Hi, I’m Shiloh! I just got up to MN from Texas and I already know I’m going to love it here. I’m told I have an amazing personality and that I’d be a great fit for any home. My foster family has little kids (ages 9-2) and I sleep with the 2 year old at night because kids are great and have lots of space in their bed for me.

There are also three other dogs here and even though they are kind of old and grumpy we get a long wonderfully. When we play I do a great job taking cues on when its fun and when its time to stop. Sometimes I don’t want to share my toys though, so I let the other dogs know that its mine but we are still getting to know each other, once we are better friends I probably won’t mind sharing all the time

I’m still working on potty training (brrr its cold out there in the mornings!) so lots of treats and praise will go a long way. I sit when told and can already play fetch. Mom says I don’t ever bark unless I’m kenneled, then I cry for about a minute before settling down and taking a nap. 

If you’re looking to spend your holidays with a young, long legged, skinny, scruffy, sweet and loving little (only 10 pounds really) dog I’m your guy!

Shiloh is from Texas. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
