Ziva

Ziva is a ball of cuteness! She is just such a happy happy dog. She loves all humans and will slowly walk over to you with her head down and belly up for some pets. Ziva loves nothing more than to cuddle up beside her humans any chance she gets. She does not mind being held and will even fall asleep in your arms if she is there long enough! She may not know many tricks (yet) but her loving and sweet personality will charm you.

Ziva lives with three other dogs and does well, her initial approach to a new dog is shy and reserved but it does not take her long to warm up and initiate a play session. She can be reactive to dogs on leash. Ziva lives with cats and loves them! She loves to give them kisses therefore she will need a dog savvy cat in the home who doesn’t mind being on the receiving end of her love. Ziva has met young kids and did well, she sometimes jumps up on people so we are asking for older dog savvy kids in the home. Ziva is a medium energy girl, due to her injury her walks should be no more than 30 minutes at a time. To get her energy out she loves to zoom around the yard, don’t let her injury fool you she is faster than you would think.

Ziva is crate trained, she is in her crate throughout the night without a peep and when her parents leave she will whine for a second in the crate but settle quickly. Ziva is fully potty trained. Ziva knows sit and wait for a treat, she would love a family who can continue her training through positive reinforcement training classes. Ziva does great in the car and takes car time as an opportunity to nap.
