Meet Zeva

This 10-year-old beauty is Zeva. She lost everyone she ever loved after her elderly owners passed away, leaving her alone and absolutely terrified after having to be physically removed from her home by the ACO team and ultimately surrendered for euthanasia.

Let's just say we are beyond grateful to our friends at STL County Animal Care for giving her time to decompress, recover from her trauma, and especially for finding her rescue!

Since joining us, Zeva has shown all of us she was so worth the save. She's learning to trust these kind, compassionate strangers who have let her take her time to settle in during a frightening and confusing time in her life.

Opening up little by little, she now absolutely LOVES her walks with her foster family and (after a first rough visit) even handled herself beautifully for her veterinary care and vaccinations on her second try.

Zeva has not had good experiences with other dogs in her life and will need to be an only pet in her new home as a result. She has less than zero interest in making doggie friends. Zeva is also currently possessive of her toys, though her temporary foster parents have already been able to help her relax a LOT on that point in just a short time as they've built her trust. Even so, we intend to set her up for her best future success in a home with no young children.

This stunner has earned a kind, peaceful retirement with a family who will help her rediscover joy after a tough time in her life. And from the looks of things so far, she's going to bring plenty of joy to her humans in return!
