Wire-haired podenca, DoB est June 16 2014. Housetrained, calm inside, playful, even boisterous at times in the yard, good with other dogs, and good on leash. Fine with our indoor cats when she has shared space with them. While Zinnia is sweet and friendly with people she knows and trusts, seeking out pets and even climbing up in lap, she recoils from strangers and will attempt to escape them.
A smaller podenca, Zinnia is about 30-35 pounds and very beautiful. She is very treat motivated and knows “sit” quite well, and “come” fairly well. She also is pretty good with “down” (lie down) and “sh”/”quiet” and is progressing with “wait.” We think that eventually Zinnia would be a good cuddle buddy indoors and/or play buddy outdoors. However, her socialization process has been a slow one, and we believe in giving each animal whatever amount of time s/he needs. If someone wishes to be considered for her during this process, that person would need to agree and be completely comfortable with no approaching her for at least a short time and no touching her at all for a while, so the best thing would be for that person to simply join us in her socialization, before adoption. Adoption must be within 4 hours drive from Gearhart, Oregon.
IMPORTANT: DUE TO AN INFLUX OF PRANK EMAILS RECENTLY, WE NOW MUST ASK THAT YOU INCLUDE YOUR NAME, CITY, AND STATE WITH YOUR FIRST INQUIRY SO THAT WE CAN CONFIRM YOU ARE IN OUR ADOPTION AREA. QUERIES MISSING THIS INFORMATION WILL NOT BE PROCESSED.
