In January, Zoe, a seven-year-old American Bulldog Mix, found herself living in a strange new place. Like most shelters, Miami-Dade Animal Services is very noisy, filled with unrecognizable smells. Shelters can be a scary environment for any animal when they first arrive, and Zoe is no exception. Volunteers say that most days, Zoe spends her time curled up on her bed, sleeping away the pain of being brought to the shelter by those she once trusted to keep her forever.
But she’s made the best of her present situation, and continues to display her loving personality, her wagging tail, and her playful attitude, to everyone she meets. She’s become a shelter favorite, but, like all the animals who reside at shelters, MDAS staff and volunteers with Urgent Dogs of Miami would be ecstatic if Zoey, #A1843225 found herself a new home to call her own.
Though they have been trying very hard to place her, like every shelter animal, high intake numbers mean that dogs like Zoe have a very small window during the week to stretch their legs, get much needed playtime or roll on a sunny patch of grass. So Zoe spends much of her time asleep, dreaming of the day she’ll be able to call another family her new family.
Her bed, donated by Miami’s Romero Britto @brittopopart, certainly is beautiful, and Zoe looks very comfortable… but shelter workers would be so much happier if the next photo you saw of her was on her own bed, in her own furever home. Where her new dreams would be filled with snuggles and kisses from her furever family, especially one who already has some furkids. Could that family be yours?
