Please Help Save Ziva

Please help save Ziva. .

Ziva is a "pandemic pup" that was dumped in May 2021. She was found running down Rt 70 between Boylston MA and Clinton MA. Ziva was only about 5mos and so very scared. Its believed she's Dutch Shepherd mix. Whoever her owners were cropped her ears and docked tail, making her look more like a Doberman.

She's a beautiful brindle girl. Given her breed, she's very strong, smart and VERY energetic. This is a breed that needs training ,boundaries and socialization, which she was never given. When she grew from a cute little puppy into this strong, jumpy, mouthy dog, the owners couldn't handle her.

She remained in custody of Clinton Animal Control for 30 days with no help in sight . We took her once to the vets to be euthanized but couldn't do it. She is just a puppy and people failed her. Paul Wood, Animal Control Officer, took the dog on personally. Over the last several months she has been evaluated by several trainers and all feel she should be given a chance. I've been working with her and have found she is really a sweet girl with so much energy she doesn't know what to do with it. She can now walk on a leash without too much issue. Her whole butt wiggles when she's happy!!

Thankfully, Big Hair Animal Rescue has agreed to take her in if we can raise money for her training. Please help save her from being euthanized, this is her last chance. All funds except for GoFundMe fees, will go directly to BHAR
