Age: 8 yrs
Weight: 22 lbs
Cats: No, she's allergic
Fenced yard: Not required
Adoption Fee: $350
Zoe has several allergies, including storage mites, and must remain on monthly Cytopoint shots (about $60), her current raw diet, several supplements, and regular medicated baths. She is allergic to human skin cells and feathers, so she must not sleep in the human bed and must avoid feather pillows. She is allergic to cats and must never be around them. Zoe has a hooded vulva that must be cleaned after pottying.
Zoe suffers from hypothyroidism and must remain on daily thyroid medication (about $20/month) and have levels checked regularly. She has a history of staph and urinary tract infections that must be monitored for recurrence.
Remember this blond bombshell? Yes, Zoe is now available! Zoe was surrendered by a loving owner who no longer could financially provide for all of Zoe's needs. What needs, you ask? Of course, we'll get that out of the way and then get onto the great stuff.
Zoe is on a raw pork/quinoa diet and receives monthly Cytopoint injections for her allergies. She requires a bath every 4-5 days along with daily cleaning of her facial and labial folds and in between her toes with chlorhexidine wipes. She has developed skin infections in the past so adopters will have to watch for recurrence and treat as necessary. If that wasn't enough, precious Zoe is on thyroid medication twice a day. And she is so very patient and gentle with all of these tasks needed to keep her as comfortable and healthy as possible.
Now, if you are still reading, let us tell you what a gem you'll find in Zoe. Not only does she ignore cats but she also gets along with other dogs and kids! We might call that the triple crown of Frenchie adopt-ability. She is housebroken, knows many commands (sit, stay, come, down, paw, back seat just to name a FEW!), is well mannered, walks well on a leash, has never shown any aggression toward people or animals, and is a master snuggler. In fact, if you or anyone else is sitting down, your lap is fair game. She loves car rides, playing tug, and going on short walks. She is pretty low energy, so not much activity is needed before she lies down for a rest. Hikers and runners need not apply unless you don't mind purchasing and using a doggy stroller.
Zoe absolutely loves her people and will be your little shadow without showing any signs of separation anxiety. Her calm demeanor and love of humans would make her a perfect office mate. If you do have to leave for work, she would do fine with a doggy sitter or midday walker. She is a curious gal who really likes to check out the neighborhood on her short walks. Because she does so well on a leash, a fenced yard is not required, but she does love hanging out with her people outside.
Zoe's foster family is really smitten with this special gal: "Miss Zoe has been nothing but pure joy since she arrived to us. She is a loving dog. We love her to pieces, and everyone who has visited our home loves to sit down, pet Zoe, and give her lots of attention and love. She does not have a mean bone in her body. She is a super sweet girl, who loves to go on adventures with her foster family (just nothing too strenuous; she does well in short trips/short walks). She is great with all people, big and small, and has done amazing with gentle children ages 2 to 18!"
If lovely Zoe has captured your heart like she has her foster family's, tell us in your application why you would be the perfect match for this little nugget. And map out your route to Maine because she won't be going by plane and riding in the car is her favorite anyway. She definitely won't disappoint the lucky family who gets to have her as a part of their lives.
FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family.he responsibility of the adopting party.
FBRN dogs are in foster care in people's private homes. For the foster families' safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don't set up meet and greets prior to applications. For detailed information about the dogs in our care, please read the extensive bios on each dog.
