A volunteer writes: Any dog who rolls over for a belly rub while in medical getting attention from vet staff while waiting for her rabies vaccination is a rock star in my book!! I mean seriously – how adorable is that! I should have known everyone would love her as she’s such a smiling wiggle butt you can’t help but fall in love. Well groomed and beyond adorable Zoe hopped out of her kennel ready for a walk and the chance to go potty. And go potty she did, confirming that she’s housetrained as advised by her former person. Zoe was surrendered to our care for being “too active” but I found her completely appropriate for her age – fun, friendly, lively and affectionate – happy to make new friends, chase a tennis ball and roll in for some petting. She’s lived with children between the ages of 5 and 16yo, doesn’t guard her things, likes to be bathed and brushed and her favorite activity is fetch. Her leash manners are good, although we’re told she can pull on her leash when she gets excited. How cute is that!!! In her first group Zoe engaged in boisterous play with a male dog jumping over him to solicit play. Friendly and fun, cute as a little bean, Zoe cordially invites you to stop by and meet her today.
Zoe is a 1 yr. old Boxer mix. The Owner got her from a Neighbor as a gift; he has owned Zoe for over 4 months. The owner surrendered Zoe because Zoe is too active for her. Zoe was last taken to a vet in June of 2015.
Around strangers Zoe is friendly playful. Zoe has lived with children between the ages of 5 and 16 years old, she is very playful around the children and adults she does not know. Zoe has never bitten anyone.
The owner states that Zoe is not bothered when some moves her food or treats while she is eating, when someone takes her toys away or when someone disturbs her while sleeping. Zoe likes to be brushed and given bathes but has never had her nails trimmed. When an unfamiliar person or animal approaches a family member or her home she approaches them in a friendly manner. The owner does not know how Zoe is around loud noises such as storms or fireworks.
For a new family to know:
The owner describes Zoe as friendly, affectionate and playful with a medium activity level. Her favorite activity is to play fetch with her owner. In the home Zoe tends to follow the owner around the house and is kept mainly indoors. Zoe sleeps in the floor of the bedroom on a blanket. Zoe was fed Pedigree dry and wet dog food twice times a day. She is house trained and has never had an accident in the home, when outside she goes to the bathroom on or around trees and grass. For exercise Zoe is used to brisk walks on the leash and twice a day and does pull hard on the leash when excited. Zoe plays rough with toys and will often destroy stuffed toys and pillows.
Behavior during intake:
Zoe was very active with lose body, when approached by staff Zoe would jump on the staff members lap in a playful manner and attempt to lick the face. Zoe allowed being scanned (+), collared and placed in a dog kennel.
6/10: When off leash with other dogs Zoe engages in boistrous play with a male dog. She jumps on and over the helper dog to both solicit and during play.
