Dog for Adoption: Zas
Update: Zas found a home!
The 9-month-old Zas can best be described as a little princess. She is highly intelligent, sensitive to the point of being timid, bossy, funny, and on occasion downright mean to other dogs. But, in the end both humans and dogs succumb to her charms. Her youthful energy is channeled into forever thinking up ways to get your attention — it usually involves stealing your things — so she does need a kind, yet experienced owner that will lead her and not adversely react to her attempts to turn your eye her way. Zas walks well on the lead, but is still getting used to the frightening noise of trains roaring past. Of slight build and easily carried, this princess is ready for a new life in Tokyo with a human companion that will recognize her charms, but ignore her tantrums. Zas loves soft blankets and sunbathing and would simply be over the moon to find herself out of the shelter pen and living in a real castle of her own.
