Likes: Zoe used to be Citron - she was rescued through Ridgeback Rescue and found her forever home in September 2004. She is a typical RR -- she enjoys sleeping, going for walks, lounging in the sun.
Pet-Peeves: Being stepped on while sleeping (who can blame her).
Favorite Walk: Anywhere. She loves to go for walks and always wants to come along. Beware if you leave your car door open -- she'll jump in and curl up -- she is a real family dog that wants to be part of everything.
Arrival Story: Citron was rescued in the San Diego area by Rhodesian Ridgeback rescue. She lived with two foster brothers, Kobe and Levi, for almost three months before she found her forever home with her Ridgeback brother (see pictures) Buzz. In her new home she and her brother Buzz have their own bed to sleep on.

Bio: When Citron first came to us we were told that she had been a 100% outside dog. She has lived in a concrete run and her body shows the signs of that -- she has several patches where her skin is calloused and the fur has worn off . She loves to go for short walks but she is content to laze around all day on her dog bed (though we know she sneaks up on the couch and our bed when we're not looking). She LOVES to go for short walks and playing at Fiesta Island. Citron is hypo-thyroid and came to us a bit overweight -- with low calorie food and several short walks each day Citron is now down to 80 lbs and she looks great. Her bloodwork is great -- she's in perfect health! Citron loves to go for short jaunts around the neighborhood but she is a typical Ridgeback -- her favorite pastime is snoozing happily by your side.
