Meet Zelda! She's a 6 year old female Chi mix who is just waiting to get into your arms, or your lap! She's great with cats. dogs, kids and loves to be held. Zelda is house trained but she also will go in the house on pee pads or over mark. You've got to get her on a schedule. She only eats wet food (we've tried) and she hates to be crated. You would have to gate her in an area while at work. She would be ideal for someone retired or who works from home. Zee also needs time to trust you. If she's uncomfortable in any situation, she will growl to let you know. She's not impulsive and will give you a warning to give her space. We joke that she's having a bipolar moment, but the truth is, she just doesn't know how to tell you that she's scared. We absolutely adore her and she is the most stunning little dog. Adorable and so loving and affectionate!

She is Fully vetted which means: altered, rabies, distemper, bordetella, heart worm test, fecal test, dewormed and microchip.
Adoption fee is $385.

About Brass City Rescue Alliance

About Our Rescue Group...

We aim to get as many dogs and cats adopted as possible via our rescue. We have our own shelter and also several feline foster homes to lovingly care for our animals prior to placement. We provide veterinary care, behavioral assessments and training to make each animal successful in its new forever home.

During warmer months we collect food, toys and other needs for the impounded dogs and the rescued/adopted dogs. We also collect items for the dogs we rescue as well as vetting donations for their care while in rescue. We network for dogs at local shelters and lend a hand to our rescue friends whenever we can. We also advocate for the well being of the dogs and their living conditions and strive to better improve the long standing customer service issues at the Waterbury Dog Pound as well as other shelters. We also help the public with questions, training, referrals/paying for veterinary care etc. Through constant media promotion and proper assessments of the dogs, we hope to save as many lives as possible in our day to day mission.

Our Adoption Process...

When a potential adopter is interested in adopting a dog from BCRA, they must fill out an adoption application. The application will be checked within 48 hours and our Adoption Coordinator will email you (please check your spam box!) We will need you to provide a Vet reference, 2-3 personal references (non-family) and will schedule a home check visit about 14-21 days after adoption. This allows us to not only check on how you're all adjusting to one another, but to also address any concerns that you have. We will never leave you in the lurch and will always be there to guide you with your dog/cat. We love them too!
