Sheldon the Star

Categories: Adoption Stories

sheldonbioMy name is Elizabeth Solebello, and my wife and I adopted a wonderful Chiweenie puppy from your amazing organization in August 2014.  He has become such an intricate and loving part of our growing family, and fits right in with all of us so well. We named him Sheldon, and he has been our “little man” ever since.

This past September, Sheldon was cast in a local theater production at the Sierra Madre Playhouse in Sierra Madre, CA, just Northeast of Pasadena.  He is playing the role of “Queenie” in Truman Capote’s short story turned musical production called “A Christmas Memory”, directed by Alison Eliel Kalmus and produced by Christian Lebano.  He has been having a BLAST, and has done such an amazing job that he has even impressed many of the professional, multi-year-performing actors and production people beyond all expectations.  We are so happy to have him in our lives, and are so glad to be able to share his great personality with so many locals through this wonderful production.

The show opened this past Friday, November 27th, and Sheldon has already received his first glowing review!

Sheldon’s story, from shelter dog to star, was covered in a recent article in the Pasadena Star News!
