About Sheena

Adoption Fee: $250
German Shepherd / Border Collie
Age: Senior
Sex: Female

Sheena is a 15-year-old, very frail and thin, female black and white shepherd-mix looking for a loving guardian as a hospice situation. This senior lady was dropped off at Chicago Animal Control with a younger Dachshund sibling. They were separated when a rescue took the Dachshund but not the senior shepherd. Luckily Sheena was taken in by the Famous Fido Rescue. She has proven to be just fine with other dogs as well as cats. Poor Sheena has had two bouts of pancreatitis since she's arrived in rescue. Rescue staff and volunteers have nursed her back from each illness and now she eats mostly boiled chicken and rice, although she also loves cheese. Her arthritis slows her down. She is visually impaired and easily startled so she may bite if surprised or frightened, so she's best in a home with tolerant dog-lovers without children. If you'd like to make a donation towards her care and the other special Famous Foster rescues, please click here: If you are interested in fostering or adopting Sheena, please fill in the online application at and follow up by calling Gloria at 773-907-0305. Her adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Famous Fido's. Sheena is at the Famous Fido Rescue, 3124 W. Irving Park Road at Troy Street in Chicago, Illinois 60618. Hours are by appointment only. Please e-mail Gloria at [email protected]
