I’m not a lot like the Ziva from the TV show other than I am fairly agile and can be athletic. I am not near as brave as she is as I get pretty nervous in new situations and when I met new people. It took me a few days to feel comfortable in my foster home but now I love my foster mom and I love to get attention from her. I loved my former owner but I never got to meet new people or go to new places so I will need someone to help me become more socialized.
These other dogs are fun to play with but I get a little rough for dogs that are not real sturdy. I have been known to bump into them when I am playing because I use to bump my sister Gretta all the time to try and make her fall down. Gretta never minded so I haven’t really learned yet that some dogs don’t like that.
I live with some dogs that are as small as 10 pounds but foster mom doesn’t let me outside with them unless she is right there with all of us. She says she isn’t sure yet if I have a prey drive like some sighthounds. I might be okay with cats but I have never seen one so no one knows for sure how I will act.
While I need some outdoor exercise, I am one of the first of the dogs to want to come back into the house to just lay around. Sometimes I even go in my crate to nap but most anywhere to lay down is fine with me. I wasn’t completely house trained when I came into foster so I was crated when no one was home and at night and I actually like my crate. It probably doesn’t hurt that I get a treat when foster mom puts me in there but I am more than ready when it is time to go on in.

Our adoption fee for dogs that are not seniors is $220. All dogs are spayed or neutered and up to date on vaccines and heartworm.
Our adoption process includes an application, personal and vet reference checks, and a home visit. We do not ship dogs under any circumstances.
We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check our front page for the dates of our next Pet Parade. Appointments outside of Pet Parade to visit our dogs are only available after an application has been filled out, and processing has begun.
Please be kind to our volunteers. E-mail inquiries will be answered much faster than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.
