Zelda pet of the week

Everyone welcome, Zelda! This German Shepherd is a ball of energy and entertainment.

Her sassy attitude only adds to her charm, making her a unique character in the household. Whether she’s chasing her tennis ball (and only THAT tennis ball) or demanding belly rubs, Zelda always keeps things interesting.

She’s also afraid of basically everything, from baby gates to bubbles. It’s impossible not to love this funny and cute pup with a personality all her own.

💌 We’re huge pet lovers at The Assist and want to feature a pet each week — fill out this form for your fur baby to be featured!
