If I could adopt every adoptable animal on the SouthCoast, I would, but I don’t think my little apartment or bank account would allow for that, so that’s why I continue my mission with “Wet Nose Wednesday.” Each week, an adoptable pet gets the spotlight in hopes of finding their forever home, and this week, the spotlight goes to Sheba the Yorkie mix from Care SouthCoast in Acushnet.

The first thing I noticed about Sheba was her precious eyes. Her face is just full of love and I have a feeling she’s quite the character. Her story, however, begins on a sad note.

Her owners passed away about a year ago and she was adopted by Kallie, a close friend.

Kallie and Sheba get along great, but Kallie is expecting a new baby, and is sad to say that Sheba does not do well with children.

Sheba is an 11-year-old, unspayed, 12-pound Yorkie mix. She has some quirks that make it difficult for her to be around children of any age. She guards her food or anything she deems valuable and she will bite.

While Sheba can be feisty at times, she’s great with other pets, good on the leash, is crate trained, and does well with strangers, as long as they don’t surprise her with unwanted petting.

Care SouthCoast suggests that “she would be best in a home that wants a companion to go for walks with and hang out without a constant desire to cuddle.”

Sheba likes to have her boundaries respected, and once those are established, she gives the best kisses.
