Meet Zell!  Found as a stray at just 3 months old, humans have certainly failed this sweet girl in the past. We’re working hard to change her life for the better –  could you be Zell’s happily ever after?  Zell is currently 7 months old and approximately 45lbs.  She is a good old fashioned mutt with Labrador, Rottweiler, Shepherd, and Boxer breeds all being a possibility in her DNA.  We estimate (but can’t guarantee) she’ll be a medium sized dog, likely in the range of 55-70lbs.  She’s up to date on her vaccinations as well as on preventatives, microchipped and spayed.  Being a stray and having to fend for herself as a young pup for who knows how long, Zell is learning to trust humans and fellow dogs alike.  She’s dog friendly, and would love a canine companion who wants to play a little rough and do some chasing. Cats are ok, as long as they’ll stand their ground when they’ve had enough of her.

Being a playful puppy still learning the rules (no jumping, nipping, etc.) she’s made lots of progress with jumping on humans, and her “mouthiness” can easily be redirected with a chew toy.   She would do best in a home with kids 10 and older.

Zell is crate trained and house broken.  She’s getting so much better at walking nicely on a leash and really enjoys her walks!  She enjoys car rides as well and will sit or lay so nicely.  On a scale of 1-10, her energy level is about a 7 and for that reason she needs to have a fenced yard to do zoomies in or a very active owner who will take her for lots of walks/adventures! Zell loves to play fetch, chew a bone or squeaky toy and chase sticks.  One of her favorite activities is sunning herself in a patch of soft grass –  she truly loves to be outdoors!  Once she’s had a sufficient amount of exercise, she’s happy as a clam cuddling on the couch for an afternoon. Zell is a very smart, trainable pup who will work hard for some treats and praise.  If you think Zell would be a good fit for your family and would like to meet her, please fill out an application.
