San Diego Pet's Quirks
She loves treats Pet's Story
I adopted Zoe in 2017 when she was at the former San Diego Animal Services. She had been abandoned in SE San Diego for a month prior to a Good Samaritan bringing her in to the shelter, and had been in the shelter for almost two months by the time I met her. She was the only dog who stayed at the back of her kennel when I got to her at the shelter, and she seemed truly sad. She was terrible around other dogs and had a hip issue and so no one had asked to meet her before me. I had never had a dog before, let alone a rescue pit bull. She was the only dog I met with at the shelter, and I was hesitant, but something sparked in her when she was allowed out of the kennel and to meet with me. She’s loyal, smart, and kind, she tries her best and did the impossible- she became best friends with my cat, when trainers said her prey drive was too high. I remember when I was picking her up to take her home, the kind vet who had just spayed her looked at me and almost pleadingly thanked me for taking her. I remember being confused because all of the volunteers loved her, I loved her, and I couldn’t imagine why anyone would thank me for picking up my best friend. The point of all of this is, give the long-shot a chance, love a dog like Zoe and they’ll never let you down. Zoe is the best dog and was the definition of an underdog.
