Facts about Zena

  • Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier/Anatolian Shepherd Mix

  • Age: Adult

This is Zena! Zena is Merry's sister and was part of a litter of three that were rescued from South Dallas from someone who could no longer care for them.

Zena is a HAPPY girl! She loves to play with the other dogs and gets along ok with my cats.

Zena was adopted as a baby, but brought back because of her PitBull background. She is obviously mixed but still a good girl. She was raised with three children and a Dachshund, so smaller animals should be alright.

Zena is a shy girl when taken outside of her element, however once she warms up she's ready to go! She would also make a good running buddy!

About Before the Bridge

About Our Rescue Group...

Before the Bridge is comprised of 3 die hard rescuers. We are a new group, formed in September of 2008, but our rescue experience spans many years. Dogs and cats are now housed at a new location in Caddo Mills. Dogs are routinely transported to local adoption events for the public to see. Folks may also take a look at our Adoption Book to look for their new friend and companion. We also have pets listed on a fellow rescuers site. We accept any breed but have specialized in Pit Bull rescue. Because we are small, our space is limited as well as our finances. Donations of money, food, or supplies are always very welcome. We do not euthanize to make room for another animal so when we are full, we must say no to taking in a new rescue.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are shown at Adoption events only. We cannot arrange for you to visit our homes or show dogs on any days other than Saturday or Sunday.

Regular adoption events are held each Saturday at various Petsmarts in the area in conjunction with the Straydog Inc group out of Gun Barrel City. We are there from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Please come by and see us!

Special events are announced as they become available.

Thank you for your understanding.

Our Adoption Process...

When a potential adopter identifies a dog or cat in which they are interested, they contact Before the Bridge to request an application. Once the application is received and approved, a home visit is set up during which we bring the chosen pet to the adopter's home to meet and greet with all the occupants both human and animal. If the home visit goes smoothly, the adopter will sign a contract and pay a $200 donation fee ($100 for cats). We then leave the pet in their new Forever Home and do a followup phone call in a week or so to see how things are going.

*Please note: Although the City of Garland Shelter is making great strides in the right direction in their treatment of Pit Bulls, they still have a long way to go. Therefore, Before the Bridge does not adopt Pit Bulls to residents in Garland. We regret this inconvenience and will continue to monitor changes in that City.
