our featured pet
Don’t think because Zora is so big that she isn’t a big mush, because that’s exactly what she is. She is the life of the party and loves when humans laugh and smile at her.
Zora is a bit of a goofball. She hops like a bunny and likes to slide down the last few steps of the staircase (she stretches completely out and slides to the bottom). She gives the absolutely best hugs and will snuggle into your neck as she’s doing it. She will also sit on your head while you watch TV; maybe not comfortable for you, but she loves it! Zora’s favorite things are humans, chew toys, and FOOD! She’s not choosy about what she’ll gnaw on. She’ll take balls, stuffed animals, Kongs or bones. She’s housebroken and knows commands for “Outside”, “Let’s go potty” and “Let’s eat”. “Sit” and “wait” are harder for her so she could use more training (and lots of hugs, belly rubs, and cheeseburgers!) Zora also “chirps” more than she barks. She’ll do the chirping/whining if she is outside for more than 2 minutes by herself or has to be crated. Despite her protests, though, Zora is well-behaved in the crate. She quiets herself with a chewy toy. She loves, loves, loves car rides. She’s not good with small dogs, primarily because she gets too excited and doesn’t realize how big she is. She definitely doesn’t like cats, though. She is strong, so it takes some patience to work with her on a leash. A harness is best for her because it’s easier for the human and it doesn’t pull on her neck as much. So, if you’re looking for a huggy-bear pitbull, who will make you laugh and love you more than you knew you could be loved, Zora’s your girl. Zora is about 3 yrs old and weights 65 lbs. She is being fostered in Houston, TX. She would come to her new home on professional transport. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to chat with our local NJ-based team on how to adopt Zora!
