More on Shilo

Shilo was adopted by Summit Assistance Dogs after passing an intial evaluation by summit staff from the Humane Society of Tacoma and Pierce County on 11/21/07.They called her "Mitzi" while she was there, and she came in as a stray dog on 10/22/07. Wendy at Summit said, "We didn't care for that name, so we changed it." They also think she had had a litter of puppies before she arrived at the shelter, as her mammory glands were larger then usual, and it was obvious that she had nursed pups at some point in her life. Summit then evaluated her for a few weeks to be sure she seemed like a good candidate for training lacking any major behavior problems. Shilo also had show she had no lasting health problems and sound structure in her hips, elbows, and eyes.
