Zoey's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Zoey's Story...
Zoey is a very unusual dog. It took awhile to figure out what breed she looks like, then someone pointed out Basenji. Not only does she look like one, with her wrinkley face, oversided stand up ears, curled tail, stance, even the typical white feet and chest, but she also have the typicaly temperament.
She's energetic, and she likes people, but is more interested in her "person", she is protective, but is also easy to introduce to people.
She does well with other dogs, she even goes to the dog park, but she doesn't like cats, she doesn't seem like she wants to hurt them, she just doesn't like them.
Her foster also said she almost never barks. The only times she's ever really heard her back was at the neighbors feral cats.
She's a bit too bouncy and energetic for young children, but she'd be awesome with kids about 8 and up.
She is larger than a basenji, she's about 9 months old, and weighs 55-60 pounds, but appears full grown, or close to it. Shepherd is just a random guess as to what she's mixed with, but it would account for the larger size.
Zoey is housetrained and crate trained, which is good, because she's still very much a puppy, and gets into trouble when she's loose in the house, but she doesn't mind the crate, especially if there's something good to chew on.
She is a high energy dog, she has to have a fence. She hasn't tried to get out of any fence so far, but she can literally bounce several feet high, so if she ever decided she wanted to, she could easily get out of a 4 foot fence, so she either needs a 6 foot fence, or not to be left out in one alone.
All in all, she's a very sweet, playful, snuggly dog, she just needs things to occupy her (training, good toys), and some room to run, and, preferably a dog close to her size/age to play with.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zoey, a Nashville Basenji/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basenji/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Nashville, or seeking a Basenji/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Nashville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Nashville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Nashville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Basenji/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Basenji/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Nashville paves the way for another one to be saved.
