Zoey is a gentle mixed breed who is 1.5-years-old and weighs in at 33 pounds.

She hates the crate, but doesn’t need one, as she’s well behaved in her home, and is house trained.

She gets along with other dogs and tolerates cats. She loves to play and go for walks. She still requires some leash training as she pulls a bit.
Zoey is spayed; vaccinated, treated for parasites and micro chipped. She comes with 30-days of free pet insurance courtesy of 24PetWatch. Her adoption fee is $300.
