Zoey, a small and cute pooch, received a tag that says she has behavior issues. The pooch was under the tutelage of the Southern California Shelter.
Ever since she arrived at the shelter, Zoey has dealt with several problems, including her relationship with other dogs. But despite being tagged as a dog with behavior issues, Zoey proves otherwise.
Julie Chadwick, the founder of the Pepper Foundation, was able to prove this. According to Julie, she received a message from the Southern California Shelter about Zoey. Based on the volunteers’ accounts, the pooch got rescued because she was aggressive and a threat to her previous community.
Upon seeing the pooch, Julie laughed at the allegation. This is because Zoey was a small pooch, who does not pose harm to the community nor the volunteers. Moreover, the animal shelter founder learned that the dog had no teeth. The volunteers eventually told Julie that Zoey had been put to the euthanasia list. When she heard this, Julie knew she had to help the pooch. As such, Julie decided to take the dog under her tutelage.
Julie believes that Zoey will have a higher chance at adoption if the pooch is with the Pepper Foundation. So, despite the odds, Julie wanted to gamble with the pooch. It was not pity that drove Julie to this direction, but courage. She knows that the pooch is more than what she got tagged.
Before bringing the pooch to her animal shelter, Julie and Zoey visited a veterinarian. Julie wants to ensure that the dog’s vaccines are updated. After receiving the green light from the vet, Julie brought the pooch to her new home. At the shelter, Julie proved that the pooch had no behavior issues, contrary to the rumors. In her words, Julie described Zoey as a sweet and loyal dog.
