BIRMINGHAM, AL: 11 year old, laid back Zia is STILL up for adoption! This is her 3rd feature on SSD. Although Zia did have some adoption interest recently, things didn't work out (for being too big in size is all). Zia weighs 74 pounds and lounges around like a fluffy marshmallow. She has been fully vetted by her rescue and the only thing she needs now is a forever home! PLEASE SHARE to help Zia find her very own family! 🤞🏽❤️🤞🏽 @adoptagolden_bham wrote, "Zia is a really laid back girl and everyone who has met her has fallen in love. She came from the county shelter. She is 11 years old and 74lbs.
At first Zia she is very quiet and reserved. But after a few days she really starts to blossom! Zia will follow you everywhere and headbutts you when she wants pets! She also loves to be outside (if you go with her) and roll in the sunshine. Zia is such a delightful and sweet girl! She does great with other dogs and cats. Anyone would be lucky to have her in their family.
Zia received a complete neurological work up with MRI and spinal tap. Her neurological signs are from a past disorder. Her head tilt, unsteady gait will likely persist but there is no underlying disease. Her neurological disorder prevents her from making it up stairs. She’s tries but trips and can’t climb. And at 74 lbs, it's hard to lift her.
Zia is also 'very light' heartworm positive, the slow kill treatment is approved and she will start soon. She is also on Dasquin for arthritis. We don’t transport; adopters must come to Birmingham. And they must bring their dogs and family members who live in the home. We’ve had people drive from as far away as Denver, Connecticut, New York, and Miami, so they will come if they want the dog!" To adopt Zia, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and to submit an application. ❤️ #seniordog #goldengirl #adoptme #alabama #adoptdontshop
