Meet Zara: Two-Year-Old Pitbull Needs New Home

Meet an adoptable pet living at the North Central Animal Shelter.

Zara, a two-year-old Pitbull now living in the North Central Animal Shelter in Cypress Park, needs a new home.

According to a video posted on the shelter's Youtube account, Zara was surrendered by her owner, who "did not have time" for her.

The brindle-coated Zara--who weighs 46 pounds--has been living at the North Central Animal Shelter since late March.

From North Central Animal Shelter's Facebook Page:

Zara is a 2 year old Spayed Female Brown Brindle American Pit Bull Terrier and Dutch Shepherd mix who was surrendered by her owner on March 25th to the North Central LA City shelter because they had no time for poor Zara. Weighing only 46 lbs., Zara is very sweet and almost puppy-like. Zara is super sweet and takes treats gently from your hand. Zara was around a lot of other dogs at our photoshoot and she seemed to get along great with all of them. Zara would be a perfect addition to any family home. All North Central animals come spayed/neutered, microchipped and with full shots (including rabies).

As can be seen from the video above, Zara is still bursting with energy, but is also described as "really great with people" and a "really, really friendly dog."

The North Central Animal Shelter is located at 3201 Lacy Street in Cypress Park. It can be reached by phone at 888-4LAPET1 or 888-452-7381.

So we can't change human nature but as a society we can... help me out here. And small dogs can't dismember a child so I don't understand your point.

Frank - The point seems to be that the pet fanatics privilege the well-being of dogs over that of children, particularly the non-white, lower class children who reside in neighborhoods with the highest concentration of these kinds of attack animals.

This discussion is ridicules. Let's also outlaw cars while we're at it. It's not about the car itself. It's the driver.

Ricardo, perhaps you need more information about the owner's behavior before you judge the dog. I volunteer at rescue shelters and a dog's behavior begins with the owner! Train the owner and the dog will follow :-) This goes will all pets!
