Zinnias are a beautiful flower variety that is often seen in the fall, the colors of which seem especially attractive to butterflies.

Our Dobergirl Zinnia may or may not be attractive to butterflies, but she’s certainly attractive to humans!

An older woman had her since she was a puppy.  She was raised in a home with the woman and her elderly sister, along with another, elderly dog.  Sadly, the owner passed unexpectedly, and her daughter, who moved in to care for the feeble aunt, has come to the realization that she cannot also care for this young, untrained, rambunctious beauty.
 
She‘s calendar-dog beautiful, and she obeys a variety of commands (“Sit,” “Down,” “Off,” “Go to place,” “Eat,” “Leave it”) when they’re said firmly.

She’s full of energy, queen of the house, has a strong prey drive, and whines with excitement at any outside activity, real or imagined.  Also, In her former home the yard was not fenced, and she had to be tied out when she needed to relieve herself.  Now she absolutely loves to run in the freedom of our large, fenced, grassy areas.  This understandably contributes to her liveliness.
 
Not being leash trained, she’s strong and easily distracted when other dogs or humans pass by.  In other words, she needs an experienced Dober owner to guide her firmly but gently into adulthood.  There’s no question that with the proper finishing she’ll be truly remarkable, but until that is accomplished, she’ll be a handful.
 
She has a very loving personality, and there’s no doubt she’ll excel with the proper guidance.

Comments from the grieving daughter who surrendered her:
    “Zinnia has been through a lot of changes since she came to our home: she lost her best friend when my mom passed; my Aunt and elder dog both lost their sight to illness; the home situation is getting worse and is taking a toll on Zinnia and everyone in the home.  She is greatly loved, but this is now the wrong home for her.”
 
Volunteer comments:
      "Zinnia is a very pretty black-and-tan Dober with a big personality.  She LOVES attention, and you can actually see a smile on her face when she knows she has your undivided interest.  She will actually whine a little to try and get you to let her out so she can hang out with you."

    “Zinnia is exceptionally cute and friendly.  She likes to be petted and talked to while you do some chores!”

    “Zinnia is an enthusiastic, full-of-life girl who loves to be petted.  She adds energy to the space around her, and it’s infectious.  You can’t help but also feel more energetic just being around her.”
 
       "Zinnia is certainly a little ball of energy!  Don‘t let her small stature fool you - she‘s a strong girl and ready to go! Despite her exuberance, she was a joy to take out on a walk and was super interested in everything going on."
 
      "I spent 10 or 15 minutes with Zinnia in one of the exercise run areas in the Playground Sunday. She is quite affectionate! She also likes to keep an eye on everything going on around her, so whenever something got her attention she’d stop kissing me and watch what was going on outside of the run. As soon as her curiosity was satisfied she’d run back to me and start playing with me. She’s a pretty happy dog too."
.
 
If you are experienced and have the proper know how to complete this beauty’s education, make an appointment to meet, observe, and interact with her.  If you’re willing to put in a bit of time to bring her along, you’ll never have a better Dober.
