Bon jour! My name is Zella, and I am a super sweetie who would love to be you beautiful best furry friend for life. Like most puppies, I am an active gal who loves to play - especially with my doggie friends - but I also adore cuddle time, as well. I am outgoing and make fast friends with people of all ages and dogs of all sizes. As a young lady, I am still learning about the world around me and will thrive with patient, dedicated adopters who will help me with my scholarly pursuits. I am mostly potty trained (I do well on a schedule, but need to master holding it for longer lengths of time), and am crate trained; Fetching Tails requires adopters of young dogs like me to sign us up for training classes, and I am excited to learn with you by my side! In fact, I can't wait to experience a lifetime of love and fun with you, so hurry up and fill out that adoption application already so we can start our adventures soon!

Puppies are cute, cuddly and looking for a family to call their own. They need an owner who is home often, and willing to help with training, socializing and housebreaking. They need to be let out often so they can learn to go potty outside. Training is required, and we will need to see proof from adopters that puppies have been signed up for classes. They need an owner to be committed to them forever, and in return they will reward you with a lifetime of cuddles, kisses and love. Sound like a commitment you're ready to make?

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
