Energetic Zoey is a delight and would be a welcome addition


Mark your calendars — Monday, Aug. 6 — is the Humane Society of Rome’s largest fundraiser, the “Paws on the Green” Golf Tournament at Teugega Country Club! 

Howdy Winston:

I am Zoey! How are you? 

I’ve been living at the shelter since the end of May. I am a very energetic 1-year-old Retriever/Lab Mix, female canine who needs a lot of attention. I really need someone who will take the proper time to help me and train me.

I would love to have an adult female as my “mother‟ who can devote time to me or take me to puppy classes. I love to be petted and I also adore my squeaky toys.

I would need to be the only pet in the household and also children under 16 are not recommended. I am a good dog who (with love and patience) will be a great dog!

Thank you, hugs, Zoey 

HI Zoey:

Thanks for writing, you are so lovely! I suppose you are still very young but if given the proper training you will be just fine. Just need to do something with all of that pup energy you seem to be blessed with.

Good luck my dear! 

Love, Winston.
