Zoey is a Black Lab/Heeler/Shepherd mix who is approximately 1.5 years-old. She is very intelligent and knows several basic commands and tricks which she will do if there is a treat. Zoey was mistreated and abused as a puppy which has resulted in her being overly anxious. After that bad beginning, she has had a loving, patient owner who has done her best to help Zoey, but the anxiety is ongoing. When she is left alone in the home, she becomes destructive if not kenneled. She doesn’t like being kenneled but does better when there is a fan going and music played to soothe her. She is always on the alert for danger, and loud noises, such as thunder or fireworks, are especially frightening for Zoey. When she is feeling anxious, she doesn’t like to be picked up or fussed over. When in the house, she likes to be near her person, but often observes from a safe location nearby. She prefers to be an only-dog and entertains herself by chewing on her toys or bones. She is a good watchdog and loudly reacts to anything happening outside her home. Zoey loves going for walks unless there are loud noises on her route. At night, she enjoys the safety of sleeping with her person. She needs a new home because her owner is moving and can’t take Zoey along.
The suggested adoption donation for Zoey is $350, which is TAX DEDUCTIBLE, and goes toward providing supportive services to animals in the home, as well as the high cost of vetting our dogs in rescue. If you would like to welcome Zoey into your home, please begin by submitting our Adoption Application. The adoptions for all of our dogs will take place in the Omaha, NE area and must be done by the adoptive family in person. We do not ship or deliver the dogs.
