Zelda was a rescue from several years ago. Very little is known about her first owner, but she didn't have the best start in life. She has become the most loving lap dog you'll ever find.
Does not get along with another pet. Due to anxiety around my older dog. Zelda is very loyal to people and needs to be the only dog so she can have all the attention she wants, and deserves!
