Shay Needs a Home

About Shay

My name is Shay, I am a lean, mean running machine and when I get into top gear I fly along the ground. When playing with friends, I will play their tough and tumble games but chase games are my favourite as I always win. I like to chill and snooze in front of the tv, fireplace, a sunny spot or in the car. Oh, also like to nap on floors, cushions, sofas and people. I would like to have a career in squirrel retrieving but I need to master tree climbing or learn to fly first. I do like to play puzzle games as it keeps the brain working and especially if food is involved. I get fed in a variety of puzzle bowls which apparently adds entertainment for the humans to see if I can work it out. I have been at the rescue for too long now, they are nice to me but it is time I find my own digs to live in. Please come meet me and I will show you my magic charm.


Shay is currently residing at Waggy Tails Rescue, he is on our website as we are hoping to help find Shay the perfect new family!
