Wagging Tail Wednesday: Zoe

Everyone loves a heartwarming story near the holidays, right? Well we have a beautiful story to share about Tanya, who experienced love at first sight earlier this year when she met Zoe and knew that her life was going to change forever. We couldn’t be happier that these two found each other! Read more about their life together below:

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your dog (when did you adopt him/her, is this your first dog, etc.).

I’m a single mother of two. My oldest daughter is 22yrs of age, and my youngest daughter will be 18 leaving for college next year. I had a Yorkshire terrier that passed away a few years ago. I adopted Zoe 6 months ago. So happy I did

How did you find out about Wags & Walks?

I was searching the internet for animal rescues in my area and found Wags and Walks.

How did you know your dog was “the one”?

When I saw Zoe’s picture on Wag and Walks;  I told both my kids that I had to have her.

Have there been any challenges or setbacks you’ve had to overcome? What was your biggest surprise?

It was a challenge in the beginning, because we were still considered strangers to Zoe. She was a little timid and frightened of any loud noises that she heard. I was very surprised when my oldest daughter Asia who is known to be a loud person came home from college for summer break and Zoe took to her right away.

What is your favorite thing about your dog? Does he/she have any funny quirks?

Zoe loves to be chased. She a little too fast for us, so we just chase her until she gets tired and just stop running.

What is your favorite thing about being a doggy parent?

The best part of being a doggy parent is spoiling Zoe and seeing the excitement in her when I come home.

How has your dog changed you?

Being a person that was born and raised in California I never enjoyed going to the beach as much as I do now, Zoe my two kids and I walk along the beach any chance we can.

Is there anything else you’d like to share about you and your pup?

Zoe and I are the best of friends
