Will Oldham aka Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy is a very busy guy. He does everything from acting in film and television to commissioned works, voice-narration and of course, his own music. He has several dates where he’ll be performing in town over the next couple of weeks and stopped by the studio to talk about some of those gigs among other things, too.

Meet Shelby, a six-year-old Border Collie mix who came to the Kentucky Humane Society with a large wound and an exposed bone in her front leg. The wound was severely infected and veterinarians determined that her limb could not be saved. After her leg was amputated, Shelby spent a month in foster care where she learned how to get along on three legs. Shelby is feeling much better now that the pain she was suffering from is gone, and she’s now ready for a loving family who will be patient with her as she continues to heal and gain strength. She’s a very sweet, smart, curious dog who cocks her head while listening, which we think is very endearing. Shelby seems to like other dogs and can play quite intensely, so she may do best with a playful dog; we recommend a meet-and-greet to make sure that Shelby’s play style is accepted by any resident dogs in her new home. Shelby appears to be house broken and has not had any accidents while in foster care. If you would like to give this wonderful dog something she has missed out on in the past – a loving home – please come meet her at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. Shelby is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Learn more about Shelby and all our adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or by calling 502-366-3355.
