Shelby is a sweet young lady who would make a great pet for a home with adults and older children. She is a Manchester terrier/Yorkie mix who has been vaccinated and wormed. Shelby is 2 years old and has a very sweet temperament. Manchester terriers are known to be loyal watchdogs. Yorkies are likewise determined and energetic, so Shelby would brighten her next home. To learn more about Shelby, visit the Newton County Animal Shelter, located at 210 Lower River Road in Covington. The shelter usually has between 20 to 30 dogs and an equal number of cats eligible for adoption. The adoption fee for a dog or puppy is $25 and $10 for a cat or kitten. Spaying/neutering is mandatory for all animals. The shelter is open from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. The phone number is 770-786-9514.
