Characteristics: We are looking for some help with a 9 year old Rottie, Zelda. She is a senior girl who just wants to spend her golden years being loved and appreciated! She is friendly and outgoing; she loves to be showered with attention. She will trot around and explore her environment and welcomes the attention of new people. She was surrendered by an owner who could no longer care for her. Zelda is the sweetest old girl and loves to be petted. She was clearly a dog that has been bred several times given how saggy she is underneath. She has several mammary tumors and is overweight. She winces when she gets up and down as she is clearly painful on her hips. She has been known to be friendly with other dogs, per the previous owner and our experience at the shelter. Here at the shelter, she seems to ignore cats.
