Why the animal is being rehomed: Our poor dog is not doing well living with our two young kids. She has never harmed our children, but we can tell she is not comfortable around them.

Does Zada have any fears? Loud noises such as fire works, thunderstorms or vacuum. Gets anxious with different beeping (like kids toys), nail clipping (when humans clip their nails but I think it is connected to not liking hers being cut), thermometer beeping (only certain kinds) and bubble rap. The anxiety stops when the noise stops. She will usually just cower by your feet or try to climb into your lap, then is fine. Going into her crate always helps too. She is fine in the car if she is in her crate or sitting next to someone. Otherwise will whine and shake.

How does Zada usually get exercise? Daily walks, Playing in fenced-in yard, Playing while tethered outside, Running loose outside, Dog parks,
What should the next family should know about Zada: She is very sensitive and will get very scared if you yell loudly/ scream at her. She does best with calm demands and is a good listener. The only time she does not listen is if she is really scared so yelling and scaring her more is counter productive. She has never had an issue with us leaving her alone, she has never chewed items or had seperation issues. She does enjoy having her crate available to go into, we don’t shut the door so she is free to come and go. When you are home she wants to be by your side. We call her a Velcro dog because she will be touching all the time if she can. She just want to cuddle and spend time with you. She needs exercise. Not as much at she use to since she is getting older. She loves walks, the dog park, playing in the back yard. However, if you are home she wants to be where you are, so she doesn’t want to be left in the back yard for long periods of time.
