Please contact Paul Slebzak ( for more information about this pet.Sweet girl looking for love ZELDA NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! Name:  Zelda      Best Guess for Breed:  Shepherd mix      Best Guess for Age:  1-2 years as of June 2021      SEX:  Female   Approximate Weight:  45 lbs   Gets Along With:  Zelda has done well with other dogs at the shelter. We have not seen her with kids or cats but she can be tested.   Currently Living at:  Shelter   Special adoption considerations: Zelda tested positive for heartworm disease and has been treated on 7/5. Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites. Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, most dogs that were heartworm positive often suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative.  Most heartworm dogs can resume full active and normal lives, but need to be kept calm for 4-6 weeks after treatment. We are happy to talk more in depth about heartworm disease and treatment during the screening process. Retesting is recommended 6 months after treatment to confirm they are heartworm negative.    Zelda is Looking For:  I am ready to break out of this shelter and finally be with my forever family! I am a versatile young gal - ready to show off my gorgeous brindle coat for a photo op one moment, chillaxing the next. Once I recover from heartworm treatment, my young age makes me a prime companion for someone who wants to go out on long walks to explore the neighborhood, take me on adventures like hiking or swimming, or even visit the park. The dream of having a human who will love and care for me makes me so overjoyed I cannot contain it! Toys, a comfy bed, and yummy treats are just icing on the cake for me.   What My Foster Says About Me:  Coming soon   Lucky Dog cannot guarantee any dog is housebroken.  All of our dogs are working on their crate training.  TO ADOPT:  The adoption fee for this dog is $475, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment.  If you are interested in adopting, please complete the Adoption Questionnaire online HERE .   Lucky Dog Animal Rescue does our best to provide accurate information about the dogs we have for adoption.
