Meet Ziva...this girl is a smart and affectionate dog.  She loves to run and play, but also loves her snuggle time and sleeping at your side.  She gets along with other animals in the household and currentl y lives with 3 other dogs and 3 cats.  She sleeps with 2 of the cats every night.

She does not like to be confined in a crate.  She'll sleep in her bed, but would like yours better. She is great protection and will let you know if any strangers are around.  Although she gets along fine with the indoor cats, I don't know how well she would do with a loose cat in the yard. She does like to chase down possums and squirrels if she can.  She seems to like almost everyone.  She hasn't been around children much in the past few months, but she seems fine with them at events.  She is a strong, energetic dog th ough, and may knock down a small child when playing.

Ziva's special needs are:

1. she was food aggressive initially, that continues to improve. I feed her away from the others mostly, but she hasn't pushed anyone off their food for a few months now.

2. sturdy chew toys and several of them.  she gets bored and likes to chew.  a good toy supply has really helped (see picture above). if she has toys life is good

3.  room to run.  she would not do well in an apartment unless she has a dog park to play in at least twice a day or unless you are a runner who will take her along

4.  a doggie friend who likes to play.  preferably not a tiny dog, she just doesn't know how strong she is

5.  she does better with a harness than a collar

She isn't the cutest dog available, but she's such a sweetheart.  She just wants love and a family.  Please consider being Ziva's furever person.



The adoption fee includes vaccinations, bordetella, deworming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is an additional $10.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip. If adopting a puppy, the rabies and spay/neuter will be done at the same time by our vet once they are 4 months old and billed to us. It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
