Zola needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. Zola needs an dog experienced family to steer her into relaxing on her walks, retained on an extender lead. Zola is currently wearing a muzzle to allow her to settle around off lead puppies and small dogs as she was fascinated. ‘Only’ pet status. Zola adores people and is super affectionate: Visiting children we have no qualms. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Zola arrived into rescue in Ireland in Oct 2012. She shared a kennel with other dogs but saw a small dog and ran over to it as if it was a cat she was stopped but lost her rescue place and came to us where we could assure she wasn't given free licence to be off lead and make mistakes. Zola is neutered, chipped and vax'd. Zola is in boarding kennels in Guildford, Surrey.

About Zola:Zola (Budd) moves with grace and earnest. Zola is visually focused and delights in all she sees. When you are close, she is so close and loves nothing more than cuddles. You will have to be tolerant of kisses with Zola as she gives incessant kisses, with her heart bursting. Zola's best love is her toys and she loves to carry them around but is interactive. Zola has had many litters in her past. Zola travels well in a car and is a great companion. Ever so grateful sums Zola's personality up!

Zola is a pretty Boxer cross, about 6 years old. A beautiful bright beady eyes, dark brindle with docked tail. A very smart girl who is keen to please. Her only issue is she is fascinated by small furries, small dogs and cats. Zola has learnt to settle in their company by using a muzzle which allows her closeness without risk: Sadly this seems to stop an owner coming forwards...but what a fantastic girl Zola is SIMPLY the BEST! Zola needs sincere loving relationships to allow her to flourish. Special, special girl ..soooo special!

First time walking Zola yesterday. She is lovely, very excited in her kennel, but doesn't pull at all on the walk. She was a little unsure about the stiles but very patient and she hopped through them all after a little thought. We visited the stream, which she loved and played around in for a little while. She regularly turns back to check on you and whenever you get down to her level, gives you lots of kisses! Back in her kennel, she enjoyed some Fish4Dogs 'Sea Biscuits'! (she was the only dog who I could persuade that they were yummy even though they stink of fish!)


Edited to say: we came across a Jack Russell on the other side of the fence by the cow field, who was barking at us. I think it just wanted to play but I couldn't be sure. Zola was interested, but she was very good and walked away from it when I asked her to.

Got to walk Zola again last Saturday and I have to say this girl is really growing on me. After the first time I walked her I decided to title her "Zola the most affectionate dog in the World" because she is so happy to be going on a walk that she gives multiple kisses! love1

This time I again got multiple kisses and she really does have such a sweet, happy little face that you can't help but feel better for seeing her because of the greeting she gives you! Woo

The walk was just us so we set off along a very muddy path and a few times when it looked liked I might slip and come crashing down she looked genuinely concerned, mainly because it was a narrow path and she would of been in the fall-zone! We had a lovely walk and she is one of the easiest to walk dogs I have encountered.

I think she will make someone very happy as she is a lovely girl with so much love to give, here's hoping her forever home is not too far away.

Zola can be excitable around other dogs but she is making progress and found that Chase was a calming walking companion this morning. Louise walked Zola and while she was excited and jumping around initially, as Chase ignored her and got on with his walk she very quickly seemed to relax in his company and was as good as gold the rest of the walk.

Zola and I had a long walk today. I started off intending to take her for a run in the paddock but decided to walk instead...I had bought 2 tennis balls out and she was captivated and held one in her mouth the whole journey. She is learning to be calm around meeting dogs and she and Cyril said hello and walked on by. Stunning compact little Boxer cross girl, very affectionate and so tries to win affection at every turn and succeeds!

Well I got to walk Zola on Saturday which hasn't happened for a while. I found her very easy to deal with. She was very excited to see me but was not as excitable as she was on first arrival. I found her to be more appropriate in her emotions if that is the right way of putting it.

So we got harnessed, she was very chatty whilst waiting for the others, she was keen to crack on! Laugh As usual though she was very friendly and happy. I even found her good with the other dogs on the walk which was not of been possible before so I feel she is becoming more her real-self.

She is a smiley happy dog who just loves people and would be a loving pet. She needs to be in a home where she can really part of a family

Well little Zola well and truly stole my heart yesterday

When I went into her kennel she was so excited and I had taken a new toy with me - she adores balls and today I thought I would treat her to something new. But, stupid me gave her the toy and then tried to put her harness on. The problem being - the toy was very large, dumbell shape and I couldn't get the harness over the toy and her head Had anyone been watching they would have been in stitches, cos everytime, I managed to get it out of her mouth, she would grab it with her front paws - very clever!! - and then put her head right down so I couldn't get to her properly. Bless her - she was desperate to keep it and I just wanted her to drop it for a second! Anyway we got there in the end and the 3 of us (thats me, Zola and the new toy) went for a fabulous walk.

Here are the pictures which show how beautiful Zola is and how she loves her new toy, sorry they are not perfect - but she's a little bit wriggly. Oh and bless her she is not at all guardy over any of her toys - such a kind girlie.

Zola is a young playful pup with the prettiest of faces and she is so affectionate. She really needs to be seen to appreciate what a lovely dog she is

Zola is one of Louise's favourite dogs and one she chooses to walk every week. She talks about her with a huge amount of affection. I will tell you about Zola on her behalf.
Zola has come a long way while in kennels. When she first came in she was very excitable and struggling to control her energy and excitement when going out for walks and was rather over enthusiastic when around other dogs. These days she walks nicely on the lead, and is relaxed walking with another calm dog. It is rare for her excitement to spill over now and this is easily stopped with a quick command and distraction. She is a very busy girl out on walk, with plenty of joyful energy and a very loving nature, wanting to show her walker how happy she is with cuddles and kisses.

Lots of photos now to show how special she is. :love4:

Zola really enjoyed herself at the Charity dog walk a few weeks ago. Full of energy and rearing to go at the start but settled well amongst the other dogs. By the end she was happily parallel walking alongside our dog Milo.

Image

She really seemed to enjoy being out and about in the forest taking in all the different smells and sights. Zola was very responsive to my requests throughout the walk especially as we had never met before; listening well especially at the wet slippery downhill slopes!!!

Image

Zola enjoyed being stroked and having a fuss made of her and by the end of the walk had a much calmer energy and a big smile.
