Introducing Selena

Now that we have a fence, my husband agreed that I could bring home a second foster dog. I was very excited, and immediately asked for Selena. Selena is a beautiful intelligent dog, who has had a very hard time finding a forever home. She has lived in a shelter environment most of her life, and I don't know if she's ever really had a family of her own. We think Selena is a cattle dog/shepherd mix, but she could be mixed with other breeds as well. She's about a year old, and in spite of her circumstances she is still a very happy dog who loves people. She also loves other dogs and gets along with cats, so she'll make someone a wonderful pet. We're going to start working on some household manners, since she hasn't had the opportunity to learn that in the past. She already knows how to sit, and now she's learning not to jump up on people. She is getting along great with Remi and Tulsa. I was a little worried that she would be noisy, since her biggest problem in getting adopted is probably that she spends most of the day at PetSmart barking. However she's been surprisingly quiet at our house. She doesn't bark when she's crated or when she wants anything - that's a nice surprise! Here's a picture of Selena:
