Reason for being in rescue: Zeva was surrendered by her breeder to Carolina Poodle Rescue. Zeva is an F3 shepadoodle but she has more of the shepherd than poodle look. However, she is a very low shedding dog. Not hypoallergenic, but nowhere near the shedding of a german shepherd. What that means - a purebred German Shepherd is mated with a purebred Poodle to produces a litter of Shepadoodles (F1 generation). Two F1 Shepadoodles are bred to produce an F2 generation Shepadoodle, and two F2 dogs are crossed to produce an F3 litter .
Special Needs: None noted
What kind of home would be best for me: Zeva needs an experienced dog owner who has another large dog. Zeva has only known life as a breeding animal and is learning what it means to be a pet. Everything is a new experience for her. She needs the confidence of an experienced human and the leadership of another large dog to grow into a companion. Zeva is a very active girl and needs an active owner.
What is my personality like: Zeva is a sweet and loving dog. She loves to play with her best friend Ezzy and definitely follows Ezzy's lead. Zeva is passive with other dogs. She doesn't mind other dogs being in her face and is typically eager to follow and play.
Zeva has a lot to learn about being a pet. We are still learning how to walk on a leash. She was very timid in the beginning, especially being outside but she knows the routine now and is very responsive with it. She will howl when she needs to go potty! She is doing well with her crate training, though she does have occasional accidents. Routine is very, very important for this girl. Zeva really enjoys toys, but she will chew them to pieces if given the chance.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Zeva is timid when she first meets new people. It takes her some time to warm up. She is better when another dog is with her.
Tips and Tidbits: Zeva's birthday is 5/17/2015. Zeva will be ready for adoption on or around 2/14/20. She is inline to be spayed.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
