Things She Likes to Do: She’s very energetic. She loves to play with everyone, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know when someone doesn’t have good intentions. She loves to play more than eating. She has the energy to run for hours and hours. She also loves to take trips on the car.

Fun Fact: She’s small, but that doesn’t mean she can’t jump. She’s a very high jumper. Zoe and her family always joke that they should take her to a dog show to show off her tricks.
