Animal's Name: Zach
Animal ID Number: 184005
What should your foster's bio say?
Zach is a total lover. He has the sweetest soul and wants to be the best furbaby you have ever had. Zach is a puppy and likes to chew, so make sure your shoes are put away or have plenty of chew treats around. Zach is also a creature of habit so the more routine he has, the better. Zach is standoffish with strangers but warms up very quickly. He does great with kids and other dogs. Zach also needs outdoor play time. He loves 1:1 play but is equally content playing fetch.
What did you implement for house training? Do you think it's working?
Zach is potty trained because he trusts his routine. Initially he wasn't sure how to indicate so he had a few accidents but the longer he stayed here, the more he knew when his potty breaks were and would hold it accordingly.
Have you introduced them to a crate? If so, what kind of crate and what was their reaction?
Zach doesn't do well with crates, but loves his playpen. He can break out of crates and playpens when left alone, but if you are home, he will go into his playpen for quite time.
How many hours did you leave them home alone? What was their behavior like when left alone?
We originally put Zach in his playpen when we left the house but he figured out how to break out... When home alone, Zach will patiently wait by the door waiting for you to come home.
What is their behavior like with other animals? Zach gets along great with other dogs! He does really well with 1:1 play dates. When at a dog park he gets slightly overwhelmed, but often finds a ball to focus on with every ounce of puppy focus. If other dogs start getting too rambunctious Zach will run away.
What is their behavior like with new people and/or children? :
Zach is standoffish with people he doesn't know but warms up very quickly. He is great with children, but keep in mind he is a puppy that likes to nibble.
Is there anything else that you would like the new adopter to know about this dog, such as any special tricks or adorable traits?
Zach is everything you could ask for in a pup. His leg was broken for a long period of time before getting fixed so it will always be stiff but that doesn't stop him from being the best pup ever. He loves to snuggle, chew on toys, and
