This week we’d like to feature a beautiful lab mix named Zella. Zella - Oregon Humane Society . Zella is just over 3 years old, weighs 70 pounds and came to us from Klamath Falls where she lived in a home with kiddos, cats, and chickens. But she’ll need to go to a home without cats because she likes to chase them, and that’s no fun for a cat! Although Zella is 3, she has a LOT of energy, and I mean A LOT! Zella is on the Oregon Humane Society running team and would do best if she were able to go to a home with an active runner. Going for a long run really helps to burn off some of that excess energy. She can get pretty excited, so she needs to go to a calm, low-traffic home that can help to keep things mellow for her.
Zella gets anxious when she’s left alone. In fact, she’s been diagnosed with separation anxiety and takes medication for that. She’d really benefit in going home with someone who is home most of the time (when they’re not out running, that is)! Her favorite thing ever is fetch- she adores playing ball! She also likes playing with some dogs, but not all, so she’ll need to meet any potential canine companions before going home with them. She knows sit, down, and come, and is potty trained though she does have some mild incontinence while sleeping. She’s taking medication that helps to control that.
Are you looking for a running partner that can keep up with you? Do you live in a quiet neighborhood? Do you want a beautiful lab by your side? Zella is your girl! If you think you and Zella might be a match, please fill out the questionnaire in her profile and someone from OHS will give you a call to chat more about her.
