Zoe is a survivor. Owned by a hoarder in the south and used for breeding purposes, Zoe's life had been filled with pain and suffering. However, when another rescue stepped up and removed Zoe and several other dogs from the premises, Zoe's life changed forever. Recognizing that Zoe would have her best chance at finding a forever home in the north, she was transferred to MAGSR. Although we are still getting to know Zoe, it is clear that even with all of the suffering that she has endured, he is a sweet and affectionate girl. Zoe needs a little time to adjust to new people and new situations; however, we are impressed by her kind and resilient nature. As is true of all other dogs, Zoe will be most successful when provided with structure and leadership. Training will help her further develop her confidence as well as bond with her new family.
Although Zoe is clearly a special girl, we have learned that she is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if her caretakers had kept her on monthly heartworm preventatives. Zoe has begun her heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Zoe's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Zoe is definitely worth the cost. Please donate
toward Zoe's treatment, your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Zoe will need to take it slow over the next few months, she will be back to full strength once her treatment is finished. If your household is the right match for Zoe, please ask to meet her.
