This super cuddly and affectionate young lady isn't shy about asking for affection. Zelda will put her paw on your leg, rest her head on you or just cut to the chase and climb right up in your lap. More than anything, Zelda loves being loved and spending time with her person, and those adorable eyes will make you want to stay home all day with her.

On sleepovers with volunteers, Zelda has proven to be a wonderful houseguest - she's fully house-trained and does great left home alone without getting into any trouble. She's easy to walk on leash, knows "sit" and can shake with both paws. The only time she ever barks is when you're cooking to let you know "Hey, there's a hungry mouth down here too!"

As much as she enjoys her walks, Zelda's a very low energy pup, and her favorite "activities" include watching TV, snuggling on the couch, being pet for as long as you want to pet her, following her person around the house like an adorable shadow, watching you get ready in the morning and going to sleep on the bed with you. And she has the cutest way of getting off the bed - she places her front paws on the floor and stretches out as she slowly sliding her back legs off. And her puppy snores are just precious.

Smart, affectionate and sweet as can be, Zelda is going to make some lucky person very happy. Come meet her!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
