Zoe is a perfect example of what happens to a shy dog when she is shuffledfrom house to house without ever having the opportunity to grow roots andbond with one person. Zoe is not the perfect dog for everyone. I DO,however, feel that when she is finally placed in the RIGHT home, that Zoewill be the BEST dog that family has ever had.
Zoe is what I would consider fear aggressive towards strangers. Once sherealizes you aren't going to hurt her, she is your best friend for life.
Zoe is very smart and knows all of her basic obedience commands. She issnuggly when you sit down in the evenings to read or watch tv, but also
ready for a romp outside whenever you feel like an adventure. She is wellhousebroken, quiet in the crate, doesn't bark excessively, and gets alongwith dogs and cats. She loves to give kisses, and her favourite toy is atennis ball. As I write this, she is laying quietly at my feet with herchin on my shoes.
Zoe needs a fairly dog savvy owner. Someone who is willing to be patientand take things nice and slow while she settles in to her new home.Although she is in training to work on her fear aggression, and attends aweekly dog playgroup, it can be a slow process. Zoe is a very willingstudent and is HIGHLY food motivated. If you feel you might be her perfect
match, or you have questions, please apply on-line! Update 5/27: Zoe is getting to be more and more outgoing and trusting of strangers. Today at petsmart she happily greeted about half of the people who walked passed her! The rest she obviously WANTED to say hello to and simply could not work up the nerve!
Zoe will be herepatiently waiting for you.If you are interested in adopting this beautiful girl, apply online at www.humanecampbell.org
