PLEASE NOTE: Fosters have 14 days to decide if they wish to “foster fail” and adopt their foster dog.

Meet Zell!  Found as a stray at just 5 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 6 months old and approximately 35lbs.  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 55-65lbs.  She’s up to date on her vaccinations as well as on preventatives, and will be spayed prior to adoption.  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 would do okay with a dog who is savvy enough to let her when they’ve had enough playing/chasing. Being a playful puppy still learning the rules (no jumping, nipping, etc.) we think she’d do best in a home with kids 10 and older.

Zell is crate trained and making big steps in being fully house broken as well as walking on a leash.  She enjoys a car rides and will sit so nicely, but like many puppies occasionally gets carsick.  Most dogs will grow out of that!  On a scale of 1-10, her energy level is about an 8 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!
