Welcome to our Pet of the Month feature, where we showcase pets of all shapes and sizes from our doctors, staff and friends.


Today, we are introducing the world to Shelby Mustang. Shelby is a two year old rat terrier who is part of Dr. Debbie’s family!

Three months after her beloved 17 year old rat terrier died, Dr. Debbie’s husband brought Shelby home. Shelby was only six months old and had spent her entire life stuck in a crate. She was covered with fleas and terrified of people. But Dr. Debbie’s loving family soon turned that around. Now she loves everyone. She gets so excited when she greets people that she wags her tail so hard, her body shakes.

Shelby loves to go on adventures, especially in moving vehicles. She gets excited about riding in cars, golf carts, you name it. She especially loves boat rides – though she has no interest in going in the lake! At night, after her long adventures, she sleeps under the covers on the bed, only to wake up again in the morning, tail wagging, ready for more.

So here’s to you, you muscle-car-named, tail-shaking, adventure-loving pup! You’re November’s Pet of the Month!
