POW! From Sheila to Sheba to Shelbi -- Love And Hugs Await at KCAC

POW! From Sheila to Sheba to Shelbi — Love And Hugs Await at KCAC

Dogs got personality. Personality goes a long way.”
Quentin Tarantino, director & screenwriter

  • KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.

And last, but not least, there is Shelbi!

Shelbi is a 9-month-old black and white spayed female Pit Bull-mix that arrived at the shelter with her friends, Sheba and Sheila.


Her black mask may appear a little intimidating, but once she smiles at you, you realize this young girl is all about having a good time. With her head cocked to the side and her tongue practically falling out of her mouth, she stares directly into your eyes and waits. You can almost hear her asking why it’s taking so long for you to go on that long walk with her.

As with her sisters, Shelbi has an immense amount of energy and will need plenty of time set aside each day to play, not to mention getting her enrolled in a few training classes just to make sure that she becomes the best citizen possible!

Shelbi is able to pass along the most incredible hugs this side of the Great Lakes. She truly believes she was designed to be a lap dog and can’t wait to meet her new parents so she can cuddle with them at night.

The shelter staff at KCAC recommend that Shelbi gets adopted into a home with no other pets, so she can begin to come out of her shyness and show her new family what a wonderful personality she has.

If you need to fill your home with a loving, larger-than-life canine personality that will walk beside you for the rest of her life, then Shelbi has been waiting for you! What’s taking you so long?
