My name is Ziva and I am looking for my forever! I was an owner surrender at a shelter in West Virginia. My former owner stated that I was nervous and they were afraid that I would bite the neighbor kids. I was so scared there that I bite some of the workers. One day this nice lady came to pull a dog that I was sharing my kennel with. She came over and said Hi to me and I licked her hand. I knew she was nice and I hoped that she could take me as well, but she couldn't just yet. I came down with parvo virus and wasn't feeling well at all. Then one evening that nice lady that I had seen was there again and this time she put me in a crate in her car. She took me to her office where her doctors, staff and her nursed me back to health. That's not the best part yet! Finally after two weeks, I got to ride in her car again in the front seat and she took me home!!! I call her my foster mom and I am so happy to be with her family!! I am a very happy and fun girl! I get along with other dogs and cats. I am still a little nervous, especially with her kids, but I haven't tried to bite at all. I kinda like the oldest boy, he gives me treats and talks really soft to me! I am working hard at crate training and when I get really excited I do pee a little. We are working on all of this! I will be spayed soon and they are going to finish my shots. I won't be available for a couple of more weeks, but please start getting those apps in so that when my vetting is done I can go to my forever! So allmuttsmatter.org is where you need to go and look for me ZIVA!!!
