Meet our gorgeous girl, Ziva, a 1 ½ year old terrier mix who made her way all the way from Turkey where she was found roaming the streets as a stray. We knew she was way too adorable to be on the street, so she made the long journey here to America to start the life she deserves. This puppy is just a total blast! Ziva is so full of life, and has tons of energy. Her day consists of a few good walks/runs, naps, play, and of course this cycle repeats all day! She loves to be outdoors on walks, hikes, and just hanging out in the yard with her people.
She is still working on potty training and will need a forever family dedicated to working with her in this area. She gets very distracted by all the interesting new smells on walks that she forgets to actually go potty! Taking this into consideration, having access to a grassy yard will be an absolute must for Ziva in her forever home. Ziva gets along great with other dogs, and LOVES to roughhouse. She would do very well with a dog similar in size, or larger in her forever home. Ziva does pull on leash, and has done great on walks with the use of a harness or gentle leader head collar. She is also super smart and food motivated, so training and redirecting her on walks and in general is easy! Her forever family should be prepared to continue using one of these for daily walks, as well as to do training classes with her as she’s a young doggie who is eager to learn!
After a day full of activity and fun, Ziva cuddles up right next to her human foster brother in bed all night. She loves to cuddle, and is super affectionate with her people. Lots of kisses and love are in store for her lucky forever family… so long as they give the love right back to her! Ziva has all those typical puppy habits, and will need gentle corrections and lots of supervision from her forever people. She likes to explore when at home in between walks, but puts everything in her mouth and gets into mischief when her foster family doesn’t have eyes on her at times. Her forever family will need to make sure their home is ‘puppy proof’ and that they keep a close eye on this silly girl who has a constant itch to be doing something!
What’s Ziva’s ‘perfect forever family’, you ask? Ziva needs an active family/person with a grassy yard large enough for lots of play and zoomies, who is prepared to give her lots of daily exercise, stimulation, and love. Ziva does okay at home alone, but definitely prefers to be with her people. Her ideal forever family would be able to be home during most of the day to keep her busy, and give her the attention she craves. Ziva is your picture perfect camping, hiking, adventure buddy… but don’t get us wrong, cuddles will definitely be demanded by this pretty girl! So, who’s ready to start a life of adventure with this special pup?
