Hello, I’m Zoey, a quiet and very stunning adult Mini Australian Shepherd who is pretty timid when it comes to doing new things but once my people have earned my trust and I’m comfortable, I’m a high-energy gal who wants non-stop pets! Hee, hee!! I am very food/treat motivated, I enjoy gnawing on bones, exploring, and spending time outside, but my true passion is being near my people. In fact, I even have a bit of separation anxiety…I love being with my people so much that when they leave, I pace around until they return. I mean seriously, who wants to be ‘abandoned’ am I right!?! Well, that’s what it feels like to me when my people leave but once they’re home with me and I know they’re safe all is right in the world again!

I have not met any cats, kids, or larger dogs but I am good with smaller dogs. I live with a resident dog from whom I am learning to play with toys and navigate stairs so it would be great to have a companion at my new home too unless my family can be home with me most of the time. I am a smart girl who knows what “sit” means; potty training is coming along nicely on a solid schedule; and I am leash trained. The kennel/crate however…well, it stresses me out and not only do I pace in there, but I will potty and poop in it. I think it’s safe to say that nobody relishes the thought of cleaning me up after pacing through my mess so foster mom allows me to be in an alternate confined area when she’s out and she’ll put potty pads in case I need them. She’s the greatest!! Hee, hee!!

Anyway, I am an absolute sweetheart looking for my fur-ever home. All I need is a patient family who will love me unconditionally and NEVER give up on me, so if you’re looking for a snuggle-buddy I am your gal!! I promise I am worth it and once you experience MY snuggles, you’ll wonder how you EVER lived without them! Love, Zoey

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a  particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
