Zena is a really sweet natured girl who came to the centre via an inspector after her needs were not getting met, she is very friendly but does find new situations and meeting new people quite daunting and overwhelming. Until she gets to know you she can be really quite shy and timid so patience and understanding are a must for this beautiful girl.
Once you have earned Zena's trust she is just an absolute angel who loves nothing more than spending time with you and getting as much fuss as she possibly can. Her two most favorite things in life are cuddles and food with walks being her third. Zena has so much love to offer a new family and just waiting for her day to come when she can be part of a loving family, she is looking forward to many adventures.
Unfortunately Zena does suffer with hip dysplasia and spondylosis of her spine, she is on daily pain relief for this. The medication means that Zena can continue to enjoy life. Zena could possibly live with another dog and is suitable to live with children aged 14 years and over.
PLEASE NOTE, DUE TO THE COVID RESTRICTIONS WE ARE ONLY ABLE RE HOME TO ADOPTERS WHO LIVE IN THE YORK AND SURROUNDING AREA.
WE ARE STILL UNABLE TO REHOME ZENA UNTIL THE REMAINING RESTRICTIONS HAVE BEEN LIFTED BUT WE WILL NOW START ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR HER. DUE TO THE COMPLEX NEEDS OF ZENA WE WILL BE COLLECTING APPLICATIONS AND SELECTING THE MOST SUITABLE HOME. DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF APPLICATIONS WE ARE RECEIVING, IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD BACK FROM FROM US WITHIN 2 WEEKS IT MEANS UNFORTUNATELY YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL THIS TIME FOR THIS DOG. SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS WILL BE INVITED TO THE CENTRE ONCE THE RESTRICTIONS ARE LIFTED AND WE ARE ABLE TO OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AGAIN.
