Zelda was only two months old when she was found near Merritt on July 15, 2010. Her and her six siblings, Zabrina, Zada, Zahra, Zax, Zora and Zoe had been abandoned and left to fend for themselves.
Like most puppies, this gang was full of energy and affection. Zelda quickly became a staff and volunteer favorite so it was no surprise she her siblings were quickly adopted.
Zelda's new family came all the way from Calgary to meet her and take her home. They call her Thalia now, and they wrote to provide an update on her progress.
Thalia has quickly become a part of the family as a very active and playful member of the family. We came up with Thalia (we call her talli for short) because she was the Greek muse of humour and comedy and Talli is definitely funny.
She doesn't run, she gallops and leaps when she sees you! She jumps on your head if she can and licks until you make her stop.
She gets so excited sometimes her back legs (which are still a bit longer than the rest of her) trip her up and she does a little somersault.
She had a bit of a tummy problem in the start but our vet fixed her up with some antibiotics and she is as good as new.
Most importantly, she and our other rescue Cleo instantly became the very best of friends, they are inseparable, even spending time in the kennel together.
Thank you for helping us bring this wonderful addition into our family.
Congratulations to Thalia and her new family!
