1-2-year-old, female, black and blonde, medium-sized, German Shepherd Good with other dogs: Yes Good with cats: Unknown Good with children: Yes Poor Zya was found as a stray and had been surviving on the streets for quite some time when some Good Samaritans found her. Turns out this beautiful princess is as sweet as they come. She’s a young, energetic pup that deserves a happy home to call her own after such a rough start. Zya is being fostered by an SPR volunteer and is starting to show her sweet, good-natured personality. She’s doing well with children and is getting along wonderfully with the other dogs in the home. She does have some skin irritation is being treated, but it’s nothing that love, care and good quality food won’t fix. After all, she was trying to survive on her own on the street. This young girl will need some basic training as it doesn’t look like she’s really had any. She’s still very young and will learn quickly. And she’s already learned to sit, so we’re sure she’ll be easily trained. She does need to learn to walk properly on a leash. And she likes to jump on people, so older children might be best as she develops into a well-mannered, family pet. She is house broken and crate trained, but does seem to be a bit scared of loud noises like motorcycles. We think with a patient, loving family, this girl will really shine and finally live the life she deserves!
