Hi, I’m Zoey. After my first family didn’t have enough time for me and listed me free on Craigslist – free, can you imagine? – I’ve come to stay with my foster family. So that’s my past, let me tell you about my present … and then we can get down to the business of my future.
I’m a well-behaved and easy going gal. I know my basic commands, walk well on a leash, and love almost everyone and everything around me (except for dogs and those pesky cats – what a nuisance!). Sorry, not trying to be high maintenance here. Also, I loooove my kennel and don’t mind spending time in there when you have to go do your people things. As I am a music aficionado, it’s best for me if you put a little a cool jazz or R&B on the radio when you take off. We’ll talk stations later.
Since I didn’t have many opportunities for social outings earlier in my life – what with being kept in the basement and outside all the time like that – sometimes it can take me a little while to warm up to strangers and new situations. My perfect home would be on the mellow side where I can just relax and be myself. Also, I’m beginning to understand and greatly appreciate the concept of play. What a joy!
Kids are cool, and so are most other doggies, like me. My favorite thing is to lie on my big, fluffy bed and hang out with you. But, I must confess, there are times during the day when I just get so filled with happiness that all I can do is zoooooooooooom! It is truly liberating and I highly recommend it.
I’m so grateful for all the love and support I’m getting these days; it’s such a breath of fresh air! I make sure to demonstrate my appreciation to my family with extra kisses, leans, and happy, waggily tail. I’m a particularly chatty girl and, at the risk of tooting my own horn, I should tell you that I am quite the witty conversationalist. When foster mom comes home from work, we spend loads of time talking about our days. Also, I’m a very good listener, and I want you to know that you will always have my full and undivided attention.
Sometimes I have a difficult time seeing perfectly and when compounded with my fear of new situations, I can occasionally get anxious. But, once my family knows my “I’m uncomfortable” cues, we are golden. Also, my foster family has taken care of my physical needs with just the right amount of exercise. My arthritis isn’t very fun but they understand my needs and do everything short of waving a magic wand to make it go away. I take Rimadyl for my arthritis and eye drops for my dry eyes, but I don’t need one of those “days of the week” pill boxes or anything (hey, no judgment if you use one yourself).
My perfect home would be with someone who could give me undivided attention.
I am living in WY currently.
