ZOEY's Story...
Zoey was rescued during our Rescue Road Trip. This 1 year old, 26 pound beautiful girl is a medium size love bug! She arrived to our foster home on April 6th. This is what our foster home has to say:

Zoey arrived in NJ on April 6th after a "red eye" road trip from Kentucky. My first impression as "foster mom" upon seeing her get off the "transport" was how pretty and petite she looked. I chose a pink collar and leash for her because she really looked like a pretty girl. Her eyes and temperament seemed very gentle and kind. I took her for a walk on the leash right away. She is great on the leash....like a true girl would be. She had a snack and water and settled immediately into her crate.....despite all the craziness around her. She was not flustered at all.


Our one hour ride home to her foster home was uneventful as she laid down in her crate without a peep or whimper. When we got home, I treated Zoey to a warm bath......she seemed very frightened of the water/bath but did very well. She was scared of the dryer so I just toweled her off good and then we went into the sunny yard to air dry.


Zoey was extremely friendly and loving to the humans she met along the way. She seems like a real snuggler and mush. I introduced Zoey to my 12 year old & 10 year old dogs. They sniffed each other and were very cordial. I then introduced Zoey to my 1 year old dog who immediately went into play mode with Zoey. At least for now, Zoey had not been interest in playing. We'll see how she does later or tomorrow after she settles in and catches up on her sleep. The poor baby must be very tired. (LIKES TO PLAY NOW: SEE HERE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmXZihXxqyM


UPDATE: Zoey enjoyed exploring in the yard and the house. So far she has been an absolute doll and has great house manners. She seems to be housebroken and loves the chew toy that I gave her. Zoey loves humans and loves to snuggle. Very affectionate. She slept well overnight in crate and still no accidents. Zoey has been spayed, had a shot, rabie shot, heart-worm test, dewormed, etc. As we get to know this sweet one better, we will update the description.

UPDATE: Zoey settled in at her new foster home very quickly and without any signs of being timid or scared. Foster mom's first impression was correct, Zoey gets an A+ for being very affectionate and cuddly. She is a TRUE lap dog and will nuzzle for petting for as long as you're willing. She also LOVES rolling onto her back for belly rubs.

Zoey has beautiful eyes that adoringly gaze at her new foster humans. She is extremely affectionate and friendly to all the humans she came in contact with. Despite her obvious love of humans, she still hasn't shown much interest in her four legged foster siblings. Just a HUGE heart for humans. Late afternoon, Zoey went for a long walk with her foster mom and gets an A+ for walking on her leash. A true pleasure to walk with on a leisurely stroll.

UPDATE: It's day 5 at Zoey's foster home and I still haven't heard her bark.....even if her foster dog siblings bark around her. She's very quiet and sugar sweet. If you're looking for a sweet dog to fall madly in love with you, this is the girl for you! She just wants to shower her humans with love, kisses and affection. She also rolls over for tummy rubs all the time! Zoey is definitely housebroken and seems bright and very trainable. She now sits for treats and meals and will go right into her crate when I ask her to. She was a little reluctant to when I first got her. Of course, I always reward her with a treat when she does. Zoey has not jumped up on the furniture unless I invite her up and will get off when I tell her to. She also will "go lay down" when I ask her to. Zoey has been sleeping in her crate and does not cry or whimper when she's in it. When I leave the house to run errands, all my doggies go in their crates and Zoey goes in very easily too. I'm a believer in crates and think that dogs should love their crates as a "happy" place like kids love their bedrooms. I really think she has learned to love her crate as her quiet safe place. Never a fuss or whimper....even if I'm within sight or earshot. I've gotten into the routine of taking Zoey for a long walk after dinner (about a mile) and she LOVES it and is such a good walker on the leash. Doesn't pull and doesn't insist on stopping and sniffing. Really a pleasure to take on a leisurely walk.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ZOEY, a West Milford Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in West Milford, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in West Milford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in West Milford 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 West Milford 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 Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in West Milford paves the way for another one to be saved.
