All about Zoe
Sweet and sensitive gal Zoe arrived in our care on June 28 after her owner's passing. She is getting herself settled and so far is proving to be a wonderful Newf.  She is well mannered, gentle and friendly, a real gem! 

Looking cute as can be after a close trim to address skin issues
Zoe's vet care has begun, and her mobility is good with no orthopedic issues.   She is currently overweight and needs to drop about 15 lbs.  Her initial thyroid results show her levels sitting at "low normal" so a full thyroid panel has been done to determine if she needs meds.  Updates to follow.

Zoe arrived with a very full coat and lots of dry, itchy, irritated skin.  She has been clipped down to facilitate treatment of her bacterial skin issues that are over a significant part of her body.  Topical and oral treatment has been started to clear up her skin and ear issues and we hope to have her feeling loads better very soon.

Zoe is a very sweet girl who gets along well with other dogs and could happily join a family with another four-footed pal for her to play with.
