Why Not Me? Meet Zephyr!

By Colleen Williams
January 31, 2018 • 1 min. read

We’ve partnered with Pawsitive Alliance for the #WhyNotMePets campaign to give difficult-to-home pets an extra paw up. These lovable pets are ready to find their forever homes.


Age/Gender/Size: 3 ½ years; Female; Medium

Breed: Terrier/Pibble Mix

Likes: Learning new commands and sharing kisses, cuddles, treats and snuggles with her humans

Dislikes: Google Maps (free spirit!)

Special Considerations: No cats. No dogs. No kids. Reactive on walks. Strong prey drive.

Notes: Social butterfly; sweet personality

Zephyr is a sweet female terrier/pibble mix who recently had puppies – they’ve all been adopted and now it’s Zephyr’s turn! She can’t wait to live the bachelorette life with her own very special human or humans.

Filled to the brim (and then some) with loyalty, liveliness, laughs, and loads of love, Zephyr is healthy and clever. She loves to learn tricks (and loves to score treats) and is a real people-pleaser. Her tail has the “knock things over” kind of wag and has a happy, friendly disposition. She does have a strong prey drive, so smaller animals in the house aren’t recommended and a commitment to leash manners is a must.

Zephyr has been fully vetted, microchipped and neutered. Contact Emerald City Pet Rescue at (206) 557-4661 to learn more about adding Zephyr to your family!
