Zelda is a stray rescued from a neighboring county's animal shelter. She
loves romping in the yard and going for family walks around the park. She
also enjoys stretching out on her back for a good belly rub. She is gentle
around children and she enjoys meeting new people, but she will
occasionally jump/bump until she is corrected. She LOVES our senior dog
and tries to get him excited about his toys long forgotten.
Zelda is a quick learner and has adjusted well to house- and
crate-training. She understands basic commands like Sit and Stay and will
perform them even when there is a bowl of food begging to be pounced upon.
She does get into mischief on occasion and has to be reminded which toys
are hers and which are off-limits, but most of the time she sticks with her
Nyla bone and rope toys. Just don't leave your sandwich near the edge of
the counter, or it's a goner!
Although she is a little hesitant to jump into the car for rides, she does
great while traveling. We have tried limited off-leash training and she
has been very responsive when called. She does need some leash training on
interacting with other animals, especially squirrels or cats (be prepared
to stand strong if you meet one on your walk!).
Zelda is such a smooshy-faced sweetheart with velvety ears and an adorable
underbite that sometimes *catches her upper lip* and makes her look like
Elvis. But she's so much more than a 'hound dog' and we know her furever
family is just waiting to 'love her tender'!
