Meet Saphira! *UPDATE: ADOPTED!!!*

Meet Saphira, a gorgeous one and a half year-old Labrador/Shepherd mix available for adoption at the Shelbyville/Shelby County Animal Shelter! Dropped off at the shelter on Sunday after hours with her best friend, Franky, the report originally stated the two were found abandoned, but after being checked for microchips their owner was found. She claimed to be in the process of moving and came to the shelter, but for reasons known only to her, only claimed Franky. Poor Saphira! She was left lonely, confused and missing her best friend, but thanks to the amazing volunteers at the shelter she’s been spoiled with treats, taken on long walks (she has amazing leash manners!) and given lots of love! Do you think you can help fill the hole in Saphira’s heart and be her forever family? Saphira’s adoption fee is $95, which covers her spay surgery, rabies/booster vaccinations, wormer, Home Again microchip and registration. Anyone interested in Saphira, please check the link above for hours of operation and adoption requirements (meet and greets are a must!). Once your application has been approved, you get to take Saphira home that day!  Any additional questions, please email Chris Browder at cbrowder@cityofshelbyvillein.com or call at (317) 392-5127.

Saphira is …
– a bit heartbroken right now after being separated from her bonded partner, Franky, but she’s a good girl with wonderful leash manners and a big heart!
– wonderful with all people, including children, and is great with cats and other dogs.
– housebroken.
