Meet Zoe, with a face like a doe and a heart craving comfort.
This little 2 1/2 year old Chihuahua/terrier mix has never met a dog she doesn’t like! She would make a GREAT companion for your current dog. She’s still trying to make sense of humans (aren’t we all?) and will require a quiet, patient home with another confident, medium/lower energy dog to help her navigate – a dog that will play gently and snuggle hard is ideal.
Zoe is trained to use a doggie door, so access to at least a small yard is necessary as she is not yet comfortable on a leash. She is a curious and cautious little girl but you can gain her trust with patience (and treats!) She has gradually come out of her shell in her foster home and has gone from “allowing” pets to wanting them! You may also find her curled into the nook of your neck or between your feet while you sleep. Each little piece of affection she doles out makes you feel like you’ve won the lottery! If you are interested in giving Zoe a home where she can learn to thrive, please fill out an application. (DZ)
(The other small dog in photos is also a Rocket Dog. Zoe is being fostered with Tilly. They are not bonded, but would be happy being adopted together. Please see Tilly’s bio for more info on her.)
