Important Note

Zaid is best friends with Zephyr. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Zaid is a 2 year old Mastiff / German Shorthaired Pointer mix looking for a loving, forever home. He lives in Lagrangeville, NY, but would be happy to move to where you live, as long as you can come and meet his family first. Zaid loves children of all ages and sizes, and gets along just fine with dogs. He is not a big fan of cats. Zaid has been Neutered, Microchipped, Fully vaccinated, Crate Trained and House Broken.

You can adopt Zaid by himself, but he would very much love to be adopted together with his best friend, Zephyr.

Hi, My name is Zaid!

If you are looking for an amazing family dog, here I am! I am great big lug of love. I am am a nice mix of Mastiff and German Short Haired Pointer – 2 wonderful family dog breeds. I am already 2 years old, and although I still like to do some chewing, I am really sweet and well behaved boy.

I live in Lagrangeville, New York, north of NYC and west of Connecticut.

I have been neutered, am up to date on my shots and very healthy. I have been microchipped and am very well house-broken. I love children of all sizes and ages and am very gentle and sweet with them. I like to watch over them and make sure they are safe.

I am also a very good watch dog. Nobody is going to try and break into your house with me around, that’s for sure!

My owners love me very, very much. They are so sad to have to rehome me, but their long work schedules and an upcoming long distance move make this the best choice for me. I am in my crate way too much of the time. I would much rather be spending my time with people, following them around and showing them what a loving and devoted boy I am.

If you have a nice, big, securely fenced yard, and room in your heart and home for a 70 pound bundle of love, please consider offering me a home.

I can wait to wiggle my way in to your heart.

Love and Licks,

About Connecticut Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters are rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Pets available for adoption can be viewed on our website at

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
