Adoptable Pet of the Week: Zara

Give a warm welcome to Zara, the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week! This sweet 3-year-old girl is patiently waiting to find her forever family.

Her friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation had this to say about her:

Meet Zara, an intelligent girl who lives to please her people. Her name means “radiance” or “blossoming flower,” and it fits her perfectly. She is a beautiful flower ready to bloom under your care.

Zara loves connecting with people, soft toys, back scratches and belly rolls. She can fetch, but is still working on returning it close to you. She has mastered commands to come, sit, stay, paw, let’s go (start walking again), and drop it. She is an eager student, smart and highly treat-motivated.

Zara is very friendly to all adults she meets, both on and off leash, and bonds quickly to her new friends. She is best suited for a home that provides consistency and reinforces her training. Ideally her new family consists of adults and/or older children. She needs a slow introduction to resident dogs.

Zara is looking for a home where she can shine and be the best good dog she knows she can be. She has been patiently waiting for her forever home. Will you be her best friend?
