Why choose me?

Update 2/9: Oh, Zelda–how are you still at the shelter? Such an enthusiasm for life, yet so well-mannered and sweet once she’s hanging out with you.
Zelda was one of our test dogs for dog training training the other week and she did great! Even better, after 10 minutes she was tired and ready to just hang out. While I have no doubt she could run circles around me all day, all it takes is some mental work to mellow her out.
Zelda has a special place in my heart because I met her before she came to the shelter when I went on a ridealong with an animal control officer. We were looking for a dog that was reported to be running around with a prolapsed uterus in a brushy area behind where Zelda lived with her 6 older puppies and her mate. We spayed her under our community spay/neuter program and I was hopeful she’d have a good life. A year later she came to the shelter as a stray and wasn’t reclaimed. But at least she had one or two fewer litters of puppies along the way.
She is SUCH a good girl but no one has chosen her. I know someone will, though. Someone else will see what I see in this sweet girl.

Update 12/15: Today a family and their dogs came to meet Zelda (along with a few of our other residents!). We are glad to share that Zelda did great with each of the dogs including a large male bully mix and two small dogs!

Update 12/10: Zelda is a super sweet girl that loves to run and play. She is very polite when waiting to be taken out of her pen. A lot of the dogs jump and bark as you walk past their kennels, but Zelda tends to stand patiently, wagging her tail, waiting for you to take her out. She walks well on a leash and is short and stocky, weighing in at 48 pounds. I lovingly refer to her as a bowling ball! She has a great personality and seems to get along well with most dogs! At only 2 years old, she is ready for a long happy life in her forever home!

Zelda greeted me with a hug, and I liked her right away. She’s super sweet and loves attention. Every time I patted my leg and called her, she’d come running to me for more pets. She’s adorable! I don’t think Zelda ever meets a stranger. I saw her with someone else later, and she was enjoying another dose of lovin’. Come spend some time with Zelda–she’s a happy girl with lots of smiles and hugs to share!
