Meet Sheldon. He is a 2 yr old Harlequin dane who needs a very special family. Sheldon was mistreated and has some trust issues. He has completed a board and train situation with Todd Valentine in Virginia Beach.

At this time, Sheldon is adoptable to a family who is willing to be patient, understand that Sheldon is not always a social butterfly (with people) and will continue to work on his socialization. Sheldon is good with other dogs, NO CATS, he has been fine with the ...chickens in the training facility.

Sheldon has a heart of gold once he knows you. He can be with older kids who will respect his space and not force Sheldon to be affectionate. He does loves snuggles and attention, but he has to trust you. Food is the fastest way to this boy's heart. He will not be a dog that can be taken everywhere you go because of that, he needs a family that will work on that slowly and give Sheldon time to gain confidence and become an amazing boy.

Todd will work with the adopting family for a couple of sessions as part of the board and train. This will give the family the basics on what Sheldon needs and how to help him out of his shell. We have also received a generous offer for a donation to pay for 6 sessions (once a week) in home training with a local hampton roads trainer (we have the trainer in mind we are willing to pay for). 


This boy is amazing, handsome, and so lovable. We are open to a foster to adopt situation as well.


Adoption Fee: $300
