Hi! My name is Fala Roosevelt, but I go by Zoe. I am very athletic and would love experienced dog parents that would allow me to exercise a lot, take me on hikes, and all kinds of adventures! My Trainer says I have a ton of drive and could be very good at agility or even search and rescue if I continued training to focus and refine my drive. I am an energetic girl who loves a lot of room to run. I am guessed to be about 3 years old, I weigh about 60 lbs, and everyone tells me that I look like a boxer/hound mix.
My ideal home is a single family home outside of the city, with a large fenced yard and no tiny humans or cats running around. I do very well with other dogs, but I can occasionally get jealous when they try to hone in on my space in my house, so I need people who understand how to set me up for success if I'm sharing my home with multiple dogs, especially to begin with when we are all learning the ropes. I would probably do best with similar sized dog that is pretty mellow but still likes to play. I would also be ok in a home on my own, without other pets.
I enjoy being around people and particularly like to snuggle on the couch with them or even better in the bed!! Did I mention I LOVE to snuggle?!? I would do best in a family where there is someone home a reasonable part of the day, that has the time to give me the attention I need to develop into the amazing dog I am meant to be.
I have come from a situation where I was crated in a very small crate for many many hours a day, and then had no place to run and let off steam, so although I am very good in a crate, I don't want to go back to that kind of situation again. I am used to being in my crate for meals especially if other dogs are present and for short periods of time, 3 to 4 hours.
I have been patiently waiting to find my forever home, and will continue to wait until my perfect person or people come along. My favorite hobbies are chasing butterflies and squirrels and "talking" to birds. Are you my person?
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
