Meet adoptable deaf dog Zelda who is looking for a loving forever home with someone who will cherish her, make positive reinforcement daily training a priority and always keep her safe for the rest of her life.

From her current caregiver: Zelda was a stray found at Manatee County rescue shelter . We were in the search for a loving puppy and we found one , but it took us a few weeks of training to realize she didn’t respond to commands at all. Then we finally put it together that she is hard of hearing. We truly love Zelda but training her with 3 cats in the house ,it’s hard. We’re keeping her until we can find her a forever home with people who can help Zelda fully develop. For now we’ve been keeping her and the cats apart. But she is a cuddle bug , loves her chew toys , strong pup who wants nothing but to play play and play. She’s so smart we’ve actually taught her to sit. And her favorite treat is peanut butter!
