Maria now called Zoe was adopted from us as a young puppy. The family has since developed allergies and had to bring her back below is some information about Maria (Zoe):
Zoe is a very loving and affectionate dog. She craves attention and enjoys being talked to and petted. She is energetic, but very calm at the same time. She likes being indoors more than outdoors, so she tends to get nervous around other dogs as she doesn't come in contact with them much. The same with strangers. She tends to have a nervous bladder. Our home doesn't get many visitors, so when she comes in contact with people at a park or store, her excitement gets the best of her and she might have a small accident.I am sure this wouldn't continue to be a problem as long as she is constantly getting exposed to different people.
She is crate trained and knows her current eating and bathroom schedule pretty well. If you forget, she will remind you (: Because someone is home with her all day, she currently gets fed twice a day around 8 am and 5 pm. For breakfast she eats 3 cups dry food, and dinner she gets half can of wet and 2 cups of dry food. She could definitely eat more if you let her, but she gets various treats and snacks throughout the day. Her current bathroom schedule is 8 am, 12:30 pm, 5 pm, and 10 pm. If she is more active or has too many treats in between these times, she may have to go more frequently. For the dry food, she has allergies to different brands. We currently feed her Rachel Ray brand dry foods. She's been on this brand for 6 months, and haven't had any issues. Every time we buy more, we rotate to a different flavor of Rachel Ray food so she doesn't get bored with the taste. For the wet food, we buy the different flavors of Alpo.
As far as toys, she pretty much demolishes them all in speedy time. Even the indestructible so-called toys. Nothing is unbreakable for her (: She LOVES toys, but since she destroys them so quickly, we don't waste money on expensive ones any more. The cheap ones last just as long. Definitely stay away from soft or rope toys. She actually loves to eat them - the cotton from soft toys and the strings from the rope toys. She also doesn't sleep with any items, especially pillows, blankets, or towels as those and any other things in OR around her crate (rugs or mats) will get demolished as you sleep. Before I forget to mention, she sleeps in a crate. She tends to stay up late at night, so we put her in her crate in a room with a night light.
Our dogs and cats love to sleep on Kuranda beds. We love them, too - sturdy and long lasting, they provide comfort to our pets for years! But we do not have enough for everyone. If you would like to donate a bed or tower at discounted price, please click here!
