All About Zoe

Zoe is a sweet and sensitive girl who is quiet and well mannered, knows basic commands, and is looking for an awesome family to call her own.  She is people focused, loves to hang out with her family and be involved in all of the activities in her household.

She is a friendly girl who is affectionate and will never turn down a chin scratch or a belly rub!  An easy going gal, Zoe is a pleasure to spend time with and is a lower energy Newf who is happy relaxing with her family.  She'd be a great companion for someone looking for a slower paced dog to take on leisurely strolls.

Zoe gets along well with other respectful dogs and cats.  She is currently living with 4 other dogs in foster care and they enjoy hanging out together.  She is not overly playful,  but is happy to have a few snout wars.  An overly boisterous playmate would be too much for her, but a gentle, well mannered dog would be fine, or she would be perfectly happy to be the only dog.

Hanging with her pal

Zoe has excellent house manners and is a loveable girl who thrives on attention.  She knows her basic commands and wants nothing more than to please.  A typical velcro Newf, she is always nearby!

Born Dec 9, 2008 she is 7 years young.  Zoe came to us because her owners could not find a solution to get her ear and skin issues under control.  With some basic preventative care, lots of TLC and loads of help from Almonte Veterinary Services, Zoe is completely healed and doing well!  She looks marvellous!

Zoe requires regular ear cleaning  and daily eye drops, a regular grooming regimen, a healthy grain-free fish based diet, and lots of love to keep her in tip top shape.

Zoe is a tall girl who weighs 140 lbs.  She has put on muscle and worked very hard these last few months to build up the strength in her back end.  She is doing really well!  Zoe takes pain medication daily to help manage inflammation and is thriving with an exercise regimen in place.

Hitting the trails at her foster home
She has been spayed and her vaccines are current.  We've run full blood panels and everything looks good.

To be considered for adopting Zoe please complete our adoption application found in the forms section of this site and email it back to us.

Zoe loves to play in the water, and is very "helpful" when it's time to water the flowers!
She is being fostered in the Bancroft, ON area.  Her approved adopters will be required to pick her up in person. We will consider homes within a 15 hour drive of her foster location -- this includes parts of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont and more.

Because she will require ongoing support and medication for her hind end issues we are waiving our adoption fee and ask instead for a donation of her adopter's choice.  We will send along a good supply of her medications with her adoptive family.
