Hi everybody, my name is Zola!  I’m a creamy, buff-colored, sweet female Cocker Spaniel with an estimated date of birth of 2/24/2009, who (according to my foster mom), is pretty much perfect.  I’m just a happy, go-lucky girl, who loves people, friendly with other dogs and puppies, and I seem to like kids, too!  I’m house-trained and enjoy going outside for my potty breaks so that I can explore around the backyard.  After a round of ‘exploring’ around the yard with my foster doggie-brother, I enjoy a game of fetch inside the living room with my foster mother.  Squeaky, rubbery toys are my favorite!  My foster doggie-brother doesn’t care to play much, but does get jealous when I get too much attention.  I just bark at him and he backs off! 

Long walks are one of my favorite things to do and I’ve been kind to many of the other dogs that I meet; although, I’m no push over.  If I have to stand my ground, I will bark to let any aggressive dogs know that they should back off.  People love to stop and say hello to me and always comment on how cute and happy I am!  

I don’t live with human kids, but I’ve met a few that I just love to sniff and have pet me!  I don’t mind their company, and am not too curious about them.  I don't live with cats either and have a tendency to bark at and chase the feral cats in my neighborhood, so we're not sure how I would do in a home with resident kitties. 

You’ll notice from my pictures that I am missing an eye.  Nobody knows what happened to me, but the missing eye is completely healed and doesn’t bother me at all.  I was found as a stray in Louisiana, and my previous owners didn’t claim me, so nobody knows the whole story on my eye.  I had two chains of mammary tumors removed in the spring/early summer and have fully recovered from both surgeries. Great news ~ both chains were benign, so I'm healthy, happy, and ready to find my forever home! 

I’m a strong and healthy lady who loves to eat and slurp up lots of water.  Don’t worry, though – I can hold my bladder really well, and I don’t have accidents. I get a little stuffy and sneezy from seasonal allergies and Zyrtec keeps my symptoms in check.  

I’m a bit of a diva and just love getting brushed!  I really love attention and have been referred to as a little sunshiny charmer!  I wake up with a wagging tail and wonderful disposition! I’m heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, spayed and just a little doll!  Get started on the application process if you are interested in a sweet, playful, lovable cutie like me to be your lifetime companion!
