Hello! I am the most devoted Zelda and I am hoping to find a family that I can love and snuggle with furever!
I came to Animal Aid from a hoarding situation in Texas which caused me to be pretty under-socialized with this big & busy world. Even though I can be a little bashful at first, my foster family describes me as “the sweetest and most loving girl”. They think I am absolutely perfect – I tend to agree!
I follow my foster mom around like a shadow, and she just recently taught me how to play with toys!
All of our animals are vaccinated, treated for parasites, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and cats are tested for feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline leukemia virus (FeLv). All animals receive any necessary veterinary care (dentals, etc.) until the time of adoption.
I can’t believe I never knew how fun dog toys could be! I also absolutely love the freedom of running around in my foster’s backyard! I’m a bit of a picky eater, but we managed to find a doggy diet that I gobble right up (Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health). I am also starting on some behavioral medication that we are hoping will soothe my anxiety so I can get some more confidence-building training with our friends at Urban Pawsibilities!
Likes: My people! Nothing lights up my world more than the love of my favorite people: I like to be around my people always and request that I get to sleep right next to you…I guess you could say I’m a “velcro dog”! I am looking for a home where I have someone to be around with for most of the day! I also love to run around in the backyard and recently learned just how fun dog toys can be!
Dislikes: Being alone and strangers! I have separation anxiety, and have been noted to whine and bark when I am left all alone. I can also become reactive towards new people coming into my home. I am starting on some behavioral medication to help me with this stress and so I can get some more effective socialization & alone-time training.
