Please note that Zina is waiting for her forever home at the Montgomery County Humane Society located at 14645 Rothgeb Drive in Rockville, MD. This is NOT a no-kill shelter so if you think you may be interested in adopting Zina, please go visit her right away.
Per Volunteer Dog Handler: I’ve had the pleasure of spending many hours with Zina outside of the shelter taking her on excursions to the park for long walks, adoption events and friend’s houses. She’s such a joy to be with and happily greets everyone she sees, big and small. A super-friendly girl! She tends to be reactive towards some dogs that get close to her, but taking her on walks hasn’t been a problem as she usually ignores other dogs at a distance. I love having her in the car with me because she’s so calm, quiet and relaxed. Seeing her asleep in my backseat with the sun beaming down on her is the cutest thing, especially when I know I’ve worn her out with fun activities. Zina likes to run around (tennis balls get her really going) for a bit, but mostly wants to lay in the grass and soak in the sun while her humans visit with each other. And if you sit on the grass with her to rub her belly, boy that’s the icing on the cake for her! She’s really the sweetest thing and deserves to know the love and commitment of a forever family.
Per Previous Guardian: Good with other dogs (lived with another female pittie), good with children of all ages (lived with 5 y/o), never been around cats. Not housebroken, but is crate-trained (although will urinate and defecate in her crate). Knows commands “sit” and “stay”. A calm but active girl, she loves to run and chase balls. She also enjoys car rides and being brushed. (She was not allowed on the furniture.) When meeting strangers, she is friendly. Her bad habits include chewing on things that aren’t hers, jumping up on people in greeting, and submissive wetting. Given up because Guardian has no time to care for her.
Per Our Evaluator: In the kennel, Zina came forward in a calm and friendly manner. When eye contact was made, she remained relaxed and friendly. When spoken to, she stood quietly looking at you. On the leash, Zina is somewhat excited and eager. When taken off-lead, Zina ignored her handler and explored her environment. When spoken to, Zina came over and interacted in a calm and friendly manner. When stroked, she responded in a calm and friendly manner and solicited more attention. Zina allowed her teeth to be examined without any difficulty. During her body-handling test, Zina remained calm and relaxed throughout and exhibited no sensitivities. When placed in a vet-tech hold, Zina enjoyed the interaction. When her food bowl was taken away, Zina tried to continue eating, but showed no signs of uneasiness or aggression. When her toy was taken away, Zina readily dropped it upon request. When startled by a sudden loud noise, Zina showed no reaction. During her crate-test, Zina resisted entering the crate, but went in with some encouragement. Once inside the crate, Zina was very unhappy. Zina exhibits a nice level of play, already knows the command “sit”, and appears to be at least partially housebroken.
“Really, REALLY nice dog!! Sweet and interactive. Use caution around small dogs”
