Mixed Breed SPAYED female, 2 years old and 31 pounds.

Sweet Ophelia is a shy girl, but lucky for her--the shelter has a special SHY DOG program. Sara, our wonderful teen volunteer, works with shy and nervous dogs, and she won Opehlia's trust and love--as you can see from her photoshoot pics below! Sara spends lots of time with the shy dogs, first simply sitting in their kennel and talking softly. Each day she makes progress and tells our other volunteers how best to help each individual dog.

Ophelia is sweet, inquisitive, likes toys, and her coat is soft as velvet. She's a great little size, too. She felt good enough to say hello to the photographer and his assistant! Look here for updates, as we get to spend time with beautiful Ophelia.
