Zoe, the latest Foster Dog
She is a mini-Aussie/Sheltie cross, age 3, and spayed. She gets along well with other dogs, tolerates cats but gets snappy with them now and then (so she would not be left alone with them), walks well on a leash, and is overweight but working on it with measured portions and lots of exercise.
She is a very sweet dog with an easygoing disposition. Since small dogs are popular, I'm hoping we get some calls pretty quick. That said, she is a joy to have around - she's been going to work with me, and easily adapted to life at our house. I just feel very sorry for her that she has gone from the only home she knew to the stress of the shelter to a new place where she is happy...and there is another place on the horizon for her before she can settle down for good. She bonded with me quickly and is rarely out of my sight. I hate to give her up, but we do not need 4 dogs in addition to the current menagerie, and I don't want to take more time away from Maisey.
