Shirley is a quiet, sweet girl that is looking for a quiet place to live with a family that is home often. She is housebroken and okay with quiet children, cats, and other dogs. She can be a little timid at first, but comes around to new people. Shirley knows a few basic commands and enjoys car rides. If you are interested in this special girl, you can meet her at our adoption center. Her adoption fee is $100.
