Zelda is a 2yo female lab/terrier mix who was rescued just in time from the Memphis Animal Shelter. Sweet, well-socialized, affectionate, happy, loving and playful. Loves other dogs and would benefit from a dog buddy in her new home. Good with cats and respectful of the 2 cats in her foster home. Not living with children, but Zelda is gentle and well-mannered so she's recommended for dog-savvy children 6 years and older. Medium-high energy level outside, quiet and well-mannered in the house. Crate trained and housebroken. Obeys basic commands. Loves to be with her people. Good on a leash, rides great in the car. When she came to us, it was discovered that Zelda had an old injury of her (R) rear ankle which caused her to 'hop' once in awhile but which has healed and requires no treatment. Healthy and fully vetted, current on shots, spayed, weighs about 50 pounds. AWESOME young dog will make a wonderful companion (and jogging partner!) for an active family.
Here's a note from Zelda's foster mom. 'Zelda is a happy-spirited girl, a good girl, and oh, so lovey dovey and wanting to please her people. Her personality is endearing and we love her. She's doing great with basic obedience training and has gotten accustomed to being in the company of kitties. And our three dogs, of course. She is learning to trust my hands moving gently around her facial, neck and shoulder areas -- something she was very watchful about for a long time; I have to wonder if someone was hitting her in her former life. She's adapting to her new life with great relish. Happy, bouncy, energetic and very willing to give and receive affection. Always ready to play. She is very good about going into her crate when it's time to rest. She is bosom buddies with my dog Pal and they run like the wind together!'
