Zoe - in Maine

Newest update: May 2021

Gentle Zoe is more than a bit shy, but she is responding well to attention and affection. She is learning to  trust people and learning the routine in her Maine foster home. She gets nervous with new things and specifically with transitions, like getting her leash on to go outside  Once she warms up to you she will wag her tail and lick your hand, but it sometimes takes a little bit to see that happy relaxed girl. Zoe is a one year old lab mix and weighs just 34 lbs.

 

Zoe loves playing with toys. She does well with other dogs, and we will only consider adoption into a home with another dog.  help her feel more confident if she goes into a family She has not been around cats that we know of.

 

Zoe is one of those dogs that we just don’t know a lot about her background, but we know it must have been hard on her because she was so timid when rescued.

We think Zoe may have had some mistreatment in the past, specifically regarding being leashed or going out.  Once out there on a leash, Zoe is a skilled and enthusiastic walker. She heels beautifully and walks with purpose alongside her canine buddies. On a long lead she runs like a nut and has a blast. She went to the beach for the first time and had a blast. 

 

Zoe is very comfortable with other dogs and will curl up with them if they will let her.  She will hang out in the crate on on a dog bed in a corner. She is warming up slowly to the humans but is learning to trust the consistency of routine.

 

A loving, patient family will do well with Zoe. We  think that very little kids would be too much for her. She has spent time with a teenager and done well. 

If you have interest in meeting Zoe or any of our sweet pups, please fill out the adoption application. 

Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout Maine. Once approved, a potential family is expected to meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
