Shelby came into Robert and Debbie Gutbier’s lives like a tempest and took on the demeanor of a precocious kid, an ugly duckling you might say. When their beloved Tegan, shop dog and constant companion for 15 years, crossed over, Shelby started to fill her paw-prints bit by bit, emerging as a beautiful swan. Shelby is demanding, though, with food and rides in the truck being her top priorities. Always watching her human charges from a polite distance, Shelby gives love and affection as needed – always on her terms. Such is a Corgi.
