What kind of home would be best for me? Zoey Belle is a sweet, shy girl whose sad past hasn't hurt her sunny outlook. She needs a patient owner who will help her come out of her shell. She has lots of potential and just needs love and patience. Owner Experience Level 3: First time dog owner but has lived with a dog as an adult and participated in the dog's care
What is my personality like: One morning, a caregiver pulled into the parking lot here at CPR and noticed a terrified dog, running around with the leash around it's neck and tail tucked under. That dog was me. I didn't know where I was, or why the humans just sat me over the gate and left me. I watched them pull off, wondering if they would come back.. they never did. It took awhile for the caregiver to catch me. Once I was captured I just laid my head in the humans lap. To be a dog with a hurtful past, I am as gentle and sweet as they come. I even let a 5 lb Yorkie boss me around for a little while until I got tired and let out a little growl for him to leave me alone. I do great with other dogs, and pay no mind to cats. I don't know how to sit but I am highly treat motivated and can learn! Leash walking is a piece of cake for me! I don't pull at all and walk gently next to you. I am great at riding in a car. I even recently went on TV with our Director! I am a little shy, and could really benefit from a confidence boost. I just need a calm, loyal and understanding family to give me a home that won't abandon me.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Shy but sweet.
Tips and Tidbits: I am allergic to fleas, it is important for me to be on a good flea prevenitive.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
