Zoe is a very energetic and fun puppy! She was dumped in an affluent area of Houston and brought into a veterinary clinic by the local police department. I am currently fostering her, but do not have the space for a third dog. Otherwise, I would keep her. I am so attached.
Zoe LOVES to play! She enjoys wrestling with our dog, Axel—they will play for hours and hours! She also enjoys playing fetch and tug-of-war. She will run with you at a quick speed for short distances at a time. She is happy as long as someone is giving her some love. She enjoys cuddling, and will nudge you with her paw or head if you stop petting her. She sleeps through the night, and tries to sneak on the bed to cuddle. She is potty-trained for the most part. She will potty every time she is taken outside, but since she is young, she will have accidents every now and then. I have had her for about three weeks and she has only had two accidents. When we first brought her home, we were told she was slightly food aggressive (who knows what she went through beforehand). We have worked really hard at this and have not seen any aggression. We pet her and praise her while she eats, so she wags her tail excitedly now. We have a large dog and a small dog. She gets along well with both, though her energy is a little much for the little dog at first. She is very excited about life in general and is extremely eager to please. She gets excited to meet new people and dogs and will do anything for a treat! Zoe is a very, very sweet girl and it breaks my heart that we are currently in a townhome and unable to keep her. My husband, dogs, and I are all much attached and I know that she will win over anyone who meets her.
