Happy Wet Nose Wednesday!

Wednesdays go to the animals every week on WBSM. We have teamed up with local shelters on the SouthCoast to tell the stories of loving animals that deserve a place to call home and get as many animals adopted as possible. Every week, we shine a light on one lucky animal in hopes of finding the perfect match, and this week, our star pet comes from Lighthouse Animal Shelter in New Bedford.

Meet Zoe. Zoe is a two-year-old pit bull mix with big, brown eyes and a loving personality. When she first arrived at Lighthouse, she was a little insecure about meeting new people, but if you take your time and let her get to know you, she comes out of her shell and showers you with love.

“When she sees someone that she loves, her little nub tail doesn’t stop wagging and all she wants to do is for you to say hi to her and welcome her into your lap for snuggles,” said the shelter.

Zoe is currently in foster care and hangs out at the shelter when her foster mom has long days at work. She does well with other dogs after a slow introduction.

The shelter advises no dog parks, but she would still like to spend time with other pets that she meets properly and is familiar with.

Zoe has been a great student at the shelter and knows how to sit, lay down, and give high-fives. She is house trained, crate trained, and highly food motivated.

“Zoe’s forever home should be understanding about her insecurity with new people and will want to continue with her obedience training so that when she does get scared, she will listen to you and know that she can trust you,” advised the shelter.

Her forever family should be prepared for lots of walks, runs, and naps.

Does Zoe sound like a good fit for you and your family? Contact Lighthouse Animal Shelter to schedule a play date.
