Zinnia is a Pomeranian – German Spitz mix. Zinnia was surrendered to a specialist vet clinic for euthanasia as she has a neurological condition, her owners were not in a financial position to pay a specialist neurologist to investigate her condition and to give a diagnosis. DAP were asked to take Zinnia on and of course we agreed to help her and to find Zinnia a new home.

The first stop for Zinnia was to see Patrick the neurologist at the Small Animal Specialist Hospital in Sydney. Patrick did lots of testing, viewed video’s of Zinnia while she was having her “events” and he came to the conclusion that Zinnia’s problem is probably related to the movement part of her brain. She is going back to see Patrick in another week as we have more video’s of her “events” for him to watch and hopefully get a definitive diagnosis. Zinnia appears to be epileptic but Patrick does not believe that she is, she is currently on medication but that may not be long term. Zinnia’s “events” are not frequent, it appears that once she settles into a new environment they happen less and less.

Zinnia is a free spirit, she is very young and behaves like any other dog of her age. We want Zinnia to have a young, playful MALE dog in her new home and to get lots of attention and exercise. Zinnia can be overwhelming for dogs who are older and that is why we want to rehome her with a young dog. Zinnia’s coat does shed and it requires regular brushing and grooming to keep it tangle free. She is a house dog and must have access via a doggie door at all times.

Zinnia comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated and is on flea, worm and
heartworm prevention. Zinnia has also had 2 consultations with a neurologist and lots of testing done as she suffers with a neurological condition. The adoption fee is $495. Zinnia is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Zinnia please email Denise

Adoption details

If you are interested in adopting one of our rescue dogs please email and tell us all about your family, other pets, lifestyle, accommodation and anything else relevant to your enquiry, this information helps us to know if the dog you are enquiring about will suit your family. As all of our rescue dogs are in foster care in private homes we know what our dogs want and need to keep them happy when they are adopted by their new family. Home visits are done to check fencing, meet family members and other animals in the home. Once the home check is complete you are welcome to visit the dog in his foster home and all going well the dog will go on a two week trial with your family. We are always happy to extend the trial period if necessary. If for any reason at any time the adoption fails please contact us immediately, we will always take our dogs back into care
