A beautiful Staffordshire terrier has been waiting to be noticed for over a year at a busy, open-intake animal shelter in California. Ekia was just three years of age when her owners, who were moving, surrendered her to the North Central Los Angeles Animal Shelter on January 20, 2016.
In the weeks, and months, that have passed, Ekia has been promoted on social media time and again, but to date, she has been bypassed by potential adopters.
The volunteer-run Facebook page, Friends of North Central Shelter – Los Angeles Animal Services, has offered a bit of insight to this young dog’s personality:
(she) loves to run zoomies in the yard and then park herself next to people for pets and belly rubs. She would be most happy with an active person who will take her on runs or hikes, but who also wants a snuggle buddy.
With a few words about her life before her arrival to the shelter, and the type of home where she could thrive:
Her previous owners report that they had her for 2 years, keeping her both indoors and outdoors and that she is house-trained. She imagines herself becoming a star at obedience school where she can learn to fine tune her social skills and needs someone to study with.
A shelter is not a home – Ekia did not ask to lose her home, or her family, and right now, she could use the help of strangers to help her find a new place to rest her pretty paws. Please lend Ekia a hand by networking her adoption information.
