Pet of the Week


Sheba is a rescue dog available for adoption from the SPCA in Reno. She still has puppy energy!

Sheba – sweet, strong, playful, and friendly. Sheba is a two-year-old female husky/Shar Pei mix who’s full of tenacious curiosity. She’s unabashedly affectionate and loves to be in the heart of the action. Sheba has become our playgroup super-star. When she was originally rescued by our organization, she was timid and a bit fearful. After hours of love and patient care, our staff and volunteers have worked with Sheba to help her transform from a shy dog to a happy, social girl!


Unfortunately, Sheba’s life has been a bit “ruff.” We partnered with Lyon County Animal Services and took Sheba in March. Then, she spent months waiting and hoping to find love. She did get adopted in June, but has now been returned. While she behaved very well and even had a little Chihuahua roommate, Sheba needed a home with more time for her. She’s naturally very energetic and is very intelligent, which means that she can get destructive in a home if she is often left for extended periods of time (12 hours). She will need daily exercise and will flourish in a home where her active mind is kept occupied. Sheba is very responsive to training so we believe she might make an excellent candidate for crate training!

Please come meet Sheba today – we are open 7 days a week from 11 am to 6:30 pm and are located at 4950 Spectrum Blvd in Reno. You can call us at 775-324-7773. Our hope is that this time around, she doesn’t have to spend months looking for love in the adoption center. We don’t want to see any sparkle fade from sweet Sheba’s eyes.
