ZAKIA – Retriever Mix / 3 Years / 17kg / F-Spayed

After a 15 month wait at our partner rescue, sweet Zakia has finally arrived in Canada, and is wasting no time settling in. She is the perfect balance of smart, loving, and playful.

Zakia is doing great in her foster home, she is fully crate trained, and house broken. She is a quiet girl, and is happy to lounge in her bed, while her foster mom works from home. She loves having a secure backyard for sleeping in the grass, playtime with her foster siblings, and zoomies. She an impressively fast runner.

Zakia is food motivated and a quick learner, she has already mastered the hand signals for sit, down, and touch. She loves long walks, exploring the neighbourhood, and visiting parks and trails. Zakia gets along great with people and dogs, she often steals kisses on her foster sibling’s snouts, or her foster parent’s cheeks. She adores belly rubs and being close to her people, because of her social nature Zakia would love a family that has lots of time to spend with her.

For all that Zakia has to offer, she has a short wish list. a home with a secure backyard, an active family that will include her on their daily adventures, and someone that is willing to invest in training, this smart girl loves learning new things. Zakia is amazing with her canine foster siblings, and would love a dog pal. If you don’t have an existing dog in the house, a solid plan for playdates and pack walks would be okay. Zakia has passed her cat test!
