(NAFA points/racing history)
When we first saw Zoya at the Mat-Su Animal Shelter, her eyes spoke loud and clear: "Please take me home, love me, and play flyball with me!" How could we refuse?! Zoya immediately fit right into our household; it was as if she had lived with us for years. Our best guess is that she is a whippet/shepherd cross. We don't know her age, but based on estimates from several veterinarians, we chose January 30, 2006 as her birthday, which is 2.5 years earlier than the day we adopted her. Zoya weighs in at a petite 26 pounds. She is incredibly fast and agile, and she dares any dog to catch her. She is also sweet, affectionate, very intelligent, and quite the couch potato indoors. Based on how well Zoya did in her first obedience class, she could probably have a storied career in the obedience ring. However, we all agree (Zoya included) that flyball definitely trumps obedience when it comes to the fun factor. Zoya lives with her wrestling buddy Willoughby.
