irish wolfhound rescue dog


Zelda is an intelligent, happy go lucky, sweet young lady looking for a family with a dog to be her companion and a backyard to run and play in. Zelda is fully house and crate trained and loves to sleep inside with her family at night. She is a fast learner and has excelled at obedience training.

She is highly food motivated but will benefit from continued training and socialisation.
She loves her daily walks where she can be a social butterfly. She walks well on lead, actively listening and following directions. She will stop to lap up all the love from everybody and dog she meets. She absolutely adores children; always being gentle and playful with the whole family.

Zeldaโ€™s favourite toys are her Nylabone and all soft toys with a squeaker. If asked, Zelda will show you that the best game is a game of chase. She will bounce around the yard with a toy, wiggling her bum with delight as you chase after her. Scent work, agility and puzzles are great to keep her active mind busy, but a game of chasies is a daily essential.

Zelda is always up for belly rubs, a good bum massage and snuggling with you in front of the tv. She requires regular nail trims, monthly bathing and weekly brushing to keep her skin and coat healthy.

Zelda is being fostered in the ACT so an adoption in that area would be great.

If you think you are Zelda’s ideal home and have the time to devote to socialsing and training her (and cuddling) please email an expression of interest to Lorraine.
