Zoey is a playful and goofy sweetheart who would do best in an active household that is willing to train her and teach her manners. Meet her at the Center for Animal Health and Welfare.

Zoey is a playful, goofy sweetheart. She doesn’t have manners so she will need some basic training, especially on a leash. When she starts to play she can become mouthy, but it’s all puppy behavior without any aggression. At a first meeting Zoey can be a bit shy and nervous, but after a bit she warms up and will start to play. Zoey loves to play and just to be with someone.

When Center staff dog-tested Zoey, she did very well with the other dogs. She can be rough and rude with them at first but none of it is aggression. She just doesn’t know to be polite when meeting new dogs. Some dogs won’t tolerate that behavior so her owner will have to watch which dogs she is introduced to.

Center staff feel Zoey will be good with older children. Since she is still pretty mouthy when she plays and lacks manners she could hurt younger children by accident. Once she has some training and learns manners she will be fine with children of all ages. Zoey would do best in an active household that is willing to train her and teach her manners.
