Zelda's Story...
URGENT!!!! Zelda needs a home ASAP! Zelda is only 2 years old and she spent an entire year of her life in a shelter. That took a toll on her. She now needs a confident human to show her the world isn’t so scary. Her time is running out. She doesn’t know how to interact with dogs so she has issues with leash reactivity. This will be a project, but Zelda is very intelligent and wants to please. She’ll need you to talk her through her triggers and use praise to guide her in the right direction. She’s currently in protector mode with her family and that can’t be her role. She needs to feel safe and know you’ll take charge so she can figure out how to just be a dog. During our assessment she was able to walk side by side with a dog in just 1 hour of practice! She can do it!! She’s a sweet little snuggle bug that’s great with people. She loves to be pet and massaged. She’ll melt right into you and look at you with such admiration it’ll be impossible to resist! Affection and praise are the way to her heart. Zelda is a 45lb mix breed, our guess is cattle dog/shiba, and this girl needs a job! Can you put her to work? Must Love Dogs NW cover the cost of 3 private training sessions with one of our partners to Zelda’s new family! Adopters must have a fully fenced yard. Her adoption fee is $150.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zelda, a Vancouver Australian Cattle Dog/Shiba Inu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog/Shiba Inu for sale in Vancouver, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog/Shiba Inu dog from a breeder in Vancouver.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Vancouver already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Vancouver breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Cattle Dog/Shiba Inu breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog/Shiba Inu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Vancouver paves the way for another one to be saved.
