This week's Shoalhaven Animal Shelter Pet of the Week is the lovely Shiva.
"Hello, I'm beautiful Shiva and I was surrendered to the shelter when my owner could no longer care for me.
I'm now looking for a new family to call my own.
I'm a very shy girl when first meeting new people but with some love and patience I'll soon show you my sweet playful personality.
Due to my shy nature I cannot go to a home with children.
I haven't been out and about very much so I would love a family who promise to take me for a big daily walk plus regular trips to the park or beach.
I get to hang out with my new doggie friends at the shelter and although I'm not overly interactive with them, I'm happy to share my space with them.
If you already have a doggie friend at home for me please bring them in so we can make sure we'll be the best of friends.
I seem to prefer friendly female dogs over a dominant male. Due to not being socialised I would love my new family to promise to allow me to meet lots of other doggos so I can learn that they're fun to hang out with.
I would love to be allowed inside with my family so I can spend as much time with them as possible soaking up all of their love and attention.
My most favourite thing in the whole world is belly rubs.
If you think you're the family I'm dreaming of then please come in and meet me.
