Zoey’s family got her from a family member 10 years ago when she was 5 years old. She has had 2 litters of puppies. Her family had to surrender her due to landlord conflict.
Zoey is friendly/outgoing with new people. She’s relaxed, playful, and respectful of children. She’s relaxed and playful with dogs and cats she meets outside. She plays gently with adults, children, dogs, and cats. She’s never bitten anyone.
Zoey is friendly with strangers that approach her home/family and doesn’t mind when someone takes her food/treat/toy, moves her off furniture, holds/restrains her, wakes her up, bathes her, brushes her, or trims her nails.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Zoey’s owner describes her as friendly and medium energy. She follows her owner around and likes to play. She lived inside and ate dry dog food. She’s housetrained and potties on grass. She barks when she’s home alone. She responds to commands in American Sign Language.
Zoey was a little tense at the beginning of her intake while I picked her up, scanned her (-), switched her leashes, picked her up, and carried her. Her body softened within 1-2 minutes and she had a soft, relaxed body while I collared her, positioned her for pictures, picked her up, and put her into a kennel. She stood next to my feet while I worked at the computer.
