I am really the sweetest boy. I just love to love you. I do have what some consider a minor “situation”. You see, I am really not very happy about other doggies – well, you know, other than my brother Zeek. I don't really know why because I also get along just fine with my foster brothers and sister – it took a few days for us to get to know one another, but hey, that happens to everypuppy, right? I guess maybe I am afraid that others may try to hurt my person or Zeek. So I kind of turn into a little "gremlin". But trust me, I am a "gizmo" at home. Foster Mom thinks that we would be perfectly content to be the only two doggies in your home, you know, since we wouldn’t want another dog to feel left-out of our brotherly bond. We are very kind-hearted like that.
Zeek and I are not big fans of the leash, either. And it’s these two “situations” that led Foster Mom to say that Zeek and I will need a home that has a fenced-in yard. A nice one, please. Zeek and I love to run around and play. This doesn’t mean that you can never walk me on a leash, it will just take a lot of repetition and remindin’ me of what you expect of me, but in a kind and gentle way.
I am really a perfect gentleman. I am a good eater, I do my business where I’m supposed to, and I listen really well to my Foster Mom. I’m just very picky about meeting other dogs when I’m outside on the leash. Do you think you could still love me? I know I could love you – a lot. Could you give me and my brother another chance at a loving home?
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.
