Zera is a pretty chill girl when hanging out, and well, hanging out is her most favourite thing to do.  She enjoys watching tv, napping, or catching sun rays while you are home.  She loves being with her person and would love to have a stay at home person so saying goodbye is not something she has to do too often. Ideally she would be left with some yummy chews in a room when you go.  The only good part of you leaving is that she loves when you arrive home.  It is important to initially ignore her and take her out right away for a break though!

Zera has done slow introductions with dogs and been okay in the past, but she is very over-excited and barks and pulls on leash when she sees dogs, which makes going for walks a bit of a task.  We believe she would be happiest with a fenced in yard to play in with you (she likes fetch!) and only going for walks when there are less dogs out in the area and when training can have an impact. Positive treat training is needed for this kiddo.

Zera is hoping her awesome person is out there and ready for love.  Apply online here to adopt if you meet her needs: http://www.sitwithme.ca/zera
