Zia is a Miniature Pinscher from Cedar Rapids, Iowa brought to us by her human Raychel Steines. Raychel tells us….”I’ve had Zia for 4 years (she’s a shelter dog- so I don’t know her exact age). One of her best friends is a full sized doberman who is actually scared of her!!! She has a pet rat named Irma that she cuddles with and protects from the other dogs. I fell in love with her when I was volunteering at a temporary shelter for people’s pets who were displaced by the flood. After the shelter closed, her family never came back for her so she came home with me”. Good job Raychel!!!
