Zola

Lovely Zola is still waiting patiently for the right home. She is about one and a half years old, Labrador/bull breed cross, weighing 28kg. She loves people and is happiest in human company. She is good with gentle, non-dominant dogs. and interacts quite submissively with them. She can be insecure on meeting other dogs, often quite afraid, and sometimes in order to protect herself she will growl. Once she is re assured that everything is okay she relaxes. She is great on the lead and loves her walks. She loves going places in the car. She is house trained but she can open doors so could arrive unexpectedly into your bedroom and will delightedly launch herself onto your bed for cuddles. She would like a home with another submissive dog, or alternatively a home where she is the only dog but will have constant human companionship. She needs a very secure garden with very high surrounds as she can run up walls and scale an 8ft height. She would be upset by reactive/barking dogs in an adjoining property.
She is living in a foster home in a rural area at the moment and loves her walks in the forest and bog. She is intelligent and understands sit, give the paw, and stay.She will need an experienced owner who will understand that she is a sensitive dog and give her the patience, training and affection that she needs. She is spayed, chipped and vaccinated. With expressions of interest please contact 0871279835 or email Kwwspca@gmail.com.
We ask for a minimum donation of €130 to partly offset veterinary expenses, a dog licence and disc are required to complete the adoption, and a home visit applies.

Zola with all her friends

My name is Zola and I am about two years old. My two years have not been very happy. I used to have a home but for some reason I was just thrown out to fend for myself. In April of this year a man with a uniform and a white van found me and he told me I had nothing more to worry about…he said he would take me to the pound and care for me for 5 days, and then the lady from kwwspca would come and get me. I wasn't too sure and felt very nervous and afraid, but I really didn't have any choice. I arrived at the pound, and as I was walking in with the man there was a lady walking out against me. When she saw me she said "Hi Baby girl, aren't you a beautiful pet…I'll be back for you in five days time" This made me sooooo happy, I finally had some hope . For 5 days I dreamed about what might happen, and sure enough, the lady came back and she took me to the kwwspca shelter. Well, I thought all my dreams were going to come true and I would never need to worry about anything ever again. Everyone said 'Oh, isn't she such a beautiful dog…she is adorable…she is so pretty' I was so sure that I would only have to wait a short while before my perfect family would come for me.This all happened at the end of April…I have waited and waited. Everytime visitors come I sit and look my cutest, I wag my tail so that I look nice and friendly and tilt my head so that I look most beautiful …always hoping they will come to my run and chose me. But it never happens , and I don't know why. They all say 'wow, isn't she beautiful', but yet they pass me by.I am a very clever girl, I understand sit, stay, wait…I always try to do the right thing. I am very good on my walks. Sometimes I get excited when I see other dogs because I want to play with them…I might get a little exuberant and carried away, but when I'm told 'Easy Zola, be a good girl' I realise that I must not be too boisterous and I calm down..Today I had a lovely day…I spent all day in the garden with 11 other dogs. We played and ran and jumped and frolicked…I couldn't believe life could be so much fun. Everyone said 'wow, look at Zola, she is so good'. But it made me feel a little bit sad because all my friends are booked to go to lovely homes and I have nowhere to go…they will have soft beds, and couches, warm fires, someone to stroke their ears , someone to keep them company until human bed time…while I will lie alone in my kennel with no company, no warm fire, no human to pet me, no couch to snuggle on…just my plastic bed with a blanket, and my dreams of what it will be like for my lucky friends and my hopes that someday someone will choose me. There must be someone who will love me…and I have so much love to give. Will anyone give me a chance?I will be your faithful friend for life. Lots of love and licks, Zola.PS there are photos of me in the comments below and my adoption post is in the adopt a dog folder.
