Meet Zack *new Bio*
Sweet o’ Zack came into our care on Christmas Eve in rough shape and he is doing so much better since then with lots of love, medical attention and special food sensitivity diet to reduce skin irritation.
Jack LOVES short walks! He will do the most 𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘤𝘪𝘰𝘶𝘴 𝘩𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘺 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘵 𝘥𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘢𝘴 𝘴𝘰𝘰𝘯 𝘢𝘴 𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘦𝘦𝘴 𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘩. 💕 Because of his old bones, he prefers frequent short walks around the block for potty breaks and then is ready to jet back inside to the warmth and sleeping at your feet for hours. Jack also finds pleasure in “de-stuffing” stuffies and working hard to empty out delicious stuffed Kong.
Zack is working on his manners such as playing the game of, “Look at me” whenever he sees another dog due to the fact he can be quite boisterous – on leash, behind barriers like fence or in small enclosed spaces like the vet clinic. He would thrive on further training with a force-free, animal kind accredited dog trainer.
Our vets suspect Zack may have some environmental/food sensitivities hence the need for special food sensitivity diet to reduce skin irritation. At his last vet exam (Feb 14th 2023), our vet had said he looks SO good now with no skin irritation. We are proud of our old boy!
Interested adopters will receive all in-care vet records to help support Zack and his potential sensitivities as he ages.
He is currently in foster home and is doing so well!
Zack is seeking for his retirement home with adults and he would like to be the only pet too. ♥
If you are looking for a senior dog to love and spoil, please consider adopting Zack!
