A volunteer writes: Zara has a boooooyfrieeeeend!!!! That’s the rumor around the shelter!!! Zara has fallen in love with Cash A1076908 (another one of our fantastic dogs). They spend their playgroup time licking each others’ faces and following each other around. It is simply adorable!!! Zara is easy in and out of her kennel and walks nicely on leash. Zara graciously accepts my invitation to sit on the bench and then gladly accepts my head scratches and back rubs. Zara is a pleasure to spend time with. If you’re looking for a new companion, look no further. Zara is ready and waiting.
