Important Note

Zak is best friends with Zeek. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Zack is 6 years old and weighs 15-pounds. He is a yorkie mix and is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL. UPDATED BIO 03/07/2017: Hi everypawdy, Zack here. ! I know you have been curious about me, right? Thanks! I'm here in my foster home with my brother Zeek the Geek, lol! We have been together since the day we were born and need to stay together since Zeek makes me happy all the time. You will be happy to know that I am house-trained and go out in the backyard or on a pee-pee pad. Well, every now and then there is an accident - but I think it is Zeek that does it. I like to hang out and watch the tube, and I also like to look out the window to make sure no danger lurks in the neighborhood. Foster Mom says that I am a very good boy Me and Zeek are ready to go to our forever home. We have had all our vaccinations, a dental, a microchip and even got fixed. Neither of us knew we were broken! Oh well, you can complete an adoption application for us and maybe it will be your lucky day. It sure would be our's. Zeek and I are very lucky to have each other and I think you would be lucky to have us, too. Initial bio 2/12/17: Zack and his brother Zeek just arrived at their foster home. They have been together since birth and are very bonded to each other. Zack and Zeek will need to be adopted together. Zack and his brother are possibly Shih Tzu/Yorkie mixes (shorkies). Their foster mom is just getting to know them so we don't yet know a lot about them.. What we do know is they will need all their vetting and they will need to be neutered. Zackis the more dependent of the two. He is always looking to make sure he knows where Zeek is. When they are together they love to cuddle up together and kiss each other. As much as these boys love each other they also love their people. They do not do well on a leash yet, but they were great in the long car ride to their foster home. They slept together in their crate the whole time with not a whimper or bark. More will be coming on Zack and his brother Zeek as their foster parents get to know them better.
