Zoey came into our lives as our fourth foster dog. She arrived the week before Thanksgiving 2019 and quickly won over our hearts. We are now considered Foster Failures and happy to admit that! My husband fell hard for her even though I always said I wanted an older dog when the time came….he won.
Zoey has been a very nice, fun, challenging addition to our family. She is still considered a puppy, 1 1/2 – 2 years old, and that brings some challenges. We are working with a trainer now helping us with some behavior issues and she is a very good student and learning fast, as well as training us, which is the bigger challenger I’m sure.
Zoey just loves, loves, loves everybody she meets. She also enjoys her walks three times a day and is on a very good schedule. She loves her toys and has her own toy box and chews.
We look forward to many years of love, joy and happiness with Zoey in our lives.
Here’s Zoey (#3254). Zoey arrived from China on October 23. She has a few medical concerns but overall is a healthy young lady. She has a lump on the inside of her leg that the doctor would like to monitor and recheck in 3 weeks. She has the typical golden “itchy scratchies” and is on antibiotics to help with some of the redness and sores she has on her legs and paws, although she really doesn’t scratch and bite at them much at all so they should heal nicely. She is being treated for hookworm.
Zoey is a very sweet and loving dog who’s favorite activity is giving hugs and just tagging along with her family. She is a very active pup who can keep herself busy if given the right toys. She walks very well on the leash and is most excellent in the car.
Some of the sweet pups that come from China have a hard time adjusting to a life of unlimited food and toys and Zoey is showing some mild resource guarding issues, and She seems to guard affection too. Zoey’s foster family is working on this and understands that being in a home for the first time with 3 other Goldens is probably very overwhelming for her. They hope to see Zoey come out of her shell over the next few weeks.
Zoey was adopted on November 25, 2019
