My name is Zara - please adopt me

Zara is a small gentle black and tan GSD female who loves her walks in the park or along a riverside and playtime with a ball.

Volunteer entered the house and she gave a few barks but nothing aggressive, sniffed and found the treats in my pocket, took the treat very gently and then went and settled down in the room. Once called she came over, sat for a treat and gave a paw. She loves to have company and has company most of the day currently, when she is left she can be left in the house for a couple of hours without destruction or barking and is house trained.

Zara is hardly on a lead when she goes out for her walks and is very obedient out and about. When meeting dogs she will sniff and then move on she doesn't bother with them. She will give chase to cats but if told to stay or leave will leave them alone. New owners would need to walk her on a lead until they have built up a bond with her to walk her off lead in public.

Zara is good with children, has lived in the area since a pup and has been around neighbouring children. She is a little wary of men who come into the house and will bark and wait until they give her treat until she accepts them but nothing aggressive. She likes carrots and cucumber as a treat.

Zara hasn't lived with another dog but has been well socialised and has had a female retriever visit her home and she wasn't upset by this and would live with another dog. She likes to travel in the car.

Zara is being rehomed due to no fault of her own, her current owners circumstances have changed and can no longer give her the exercise she requires, she is a little overweight but once she is out and about on regular walks this will help her weight.

Health wise Zara is in good health but has an eye condition which is treated with eye gel/drops which she gets twice daily to help the condition and is fully vaccinated.

She is a lovely girl and has lots of love to give to her new owners and will love to companion you on walks.
