Zoey - in Maine!

Posted June 2018

 

The Z pups just turned 4 months old on June 4th! Mom is a Catahoula and dad is an Australian shepherd. They were part of a backyard breeding litter. There were 8 total puppies and they gave some away, kept some, and turned over the last three to our southern rescue partners. Some of the puppies have the “double merle” gene so they have some special needs due to their breeding. They all get along great with each other and with other dogs.

 

Zoey has visual and hearing deficits and needs extra reassurance and special training. She also needs a doggy friend with her but it has to be one that doesn’t mind her being in close proximity to them, because this is how she learns.

 

Zoey is approx. 25 lbs and is gorgeous and so very sweet. She has no problem finding the food bowl and she is able to navigate her way around a house and yard once she gets used to it. Zoey is bothered by bright light so would benefit from “Doggles” or another type of UV protection. 

 

She is such a loving and loyal and affectionate sweetheart; she gets so excited when people or dogs are near and just wants to "hug" you. 

 

If you are interested in meeting Zoey or any of our sweeties 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 New England. It is our expectation that, once approved, a  potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
