Hi! Zena is my name, cuddling is my game! I'm giving you my best smile, in hopes it will get me adopted by this weekend!
My rescue story begins when police found me tied to a pole. They freed me and took me to a safe place called Almost Home. I am a 3.5 yrs old, 45 pounds, spayed Staffy girl. I am truly a dog with a lot of love to give, just allow me a chance to show you how affectionate I can be! I am crate trained and happy to be in it. But, I was in a foster home for some time and my favorite place to sleep was in my foster brother’s bed. He said I gave the BEST snuggles! hehe, Guilty!
Also, I would always follow my foster mom around the house; I couldn't get close enough to her. My favorite pastimes are belly rubs, kissing and car rides. I know sooo many rules around a house. I can SIT, STAY, DOWN, HEEL, OFF, LEAVE IT, COME, GO PLAY or OK (my release commands). I also did a great job protecting my foster home from those pesky squirrels and other dogs that come near the house. I am wary of strangers and become agitated around other dogs, so I have been in private training with my foster family to learn better behaviors and social skills, but I still could benefit from a bit more. My foster family only had so much time to foster me, so to no fault of my own, I am back at the shelter, but I am thankful for the time that I did have in foster. I simply didn't get adopted before their time was up being able to do it. Despite training, I still did not get used to liking other dogs. Because of this, I would be best in a home without other dogs or children. Teenagers and adults are great! I would lay in my foster brother's arms like a baby, and feel so content there.
I am longing for a loving home. I will be at your side and be your best friend forever!! If I sound like a good fit for you, please fill out an application at the link in bio! 💕
