found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Little Zico is a 4 yr old 22 lb Jack Russel Terrier mix and just about the sweetest boy you've ever met. He was found as a stray in Tennessee, full of ticks, fleas, and cuts, about to be put to sleep. He has known little, if any, love in his past. Thanks to Blind Dog Rescue Alliance, Zico is now up to date on all his shots and living at a foster home in Philadelphia - but is looking for a forever home. He is not motivated by food or toys, he simply just wants a pet, a kiss, and an occasional hug. Zico sheds very little, is fully housebroken (ZERO accidents!), knows his name and can maneuver stairs like any seeing dog, he just needs to familiarize himself with the space first. In fact, he ascends & descends the 15 stairs to the 2nd floor just for fun. He trots in the park grass & when people stop to pet him, he puts on his charm and they ask, "Are you sure he has NO sight?!" in disbelief. He's a low-key guy that likes to sleep, isn't fazed by fireworks, thunder, door knocking/bell, mailman, etc. Great with cats, dogs and people of all ages. Anyone that meets him falls in love with this little guy immediately. Zico would be an amazing and fulfilling addition to any family. Thanks to Blind Dog Rescue Alliance, Zico has received a second chance to change his luck.
