As a puppy, you’re likely taking in new experiences each day. While some tasks are more exciting than others, a trip to your fur mom’s favorite store can be life changing. This is exactly what happened when a 4-month-old Corgi/Aussie Mix named Zira made her first trip to Target, and the world fell in love with her reaction.

Zira’s dog mom, Jesse Donovan, wanted to bring her pup along on one of her favorite shopping adventures. Though Target has a long list of dedicated shoppers, Jesse had no idea that her pup would be one of them. As soon as Zira rolled into the store with her paws perched on the edge of the cart, it was as if she found her happy place!

 “She reminded us so much of Rose from Titanic, the way she leaned against the front of the cart, looking out into the world of Target for the first time! We could tell she loved it so much.” – Jesse

As Zira passed through the aisles, it’s as if she became more excited with each turn. Her jaw literally dropped at the sight of all that Target had to offer, and really, can you blame her?

Her adorable reactions caught the attention of multiple Target shoppers that day, giving multiple people an overwhelming urge to come over and meet this smiley pup. If this incredible store discovery wasn’t exciting enough for Zira, making so many new friends certainly sealed the deal.

“While we were turning a corner, this woman shopping saw her and freaked out. She couldn’t stop going on and on about how cute Zira was. Zira just started licking her, and the woman loved it. She even picked Zira up and let her kiss her face!” – Jesse

Since Jesse shared Zira’s endearing reaction to their shopping trip, she has gained a long list of adoring followers that keep up with the Donovan Family’s adventures. Jesse and her husband Kasey now have over 50,000 followers on Instagram that keep up with their daily shenanigans and shopping adventures. Zira has an equally adorable Corgi mix sibling, making this account an incredible way to get your daily dose of cute!
