Meet Zola our City of Albuquerque, Pet of the Week.

Zola (ID# A1764398) is a 1 year & 1 month old female, white & brown Australian Shepherd mix weighing 61 pounds. She’s a lovely, somewhat shy girl looking for someone to offer her a safe loving home and gentle training to boost her confidence. Zola was surrendered due to “no time & cost”. She craves attention and loves affection. It seems she hasn’t had the opportunities to learn about people and the world but she’s eager to please and ready for her forever home. She’s gentle yet needs guidance when walking on leash so training classes will help that and also learning simple tasks like “sit” or even tricks will boost her confidence.  Single, couple or family with children 12 plus should do nicely. She’d love to be a constant companion and daily walking partner. As always if you already have a companion bring them in for a meet and greet to ensure everyone is happy. You can meet Zola at our Eastside shelter, 8920 Lomas Blvd NE.
