Zeke is a sweet young dog with a LOT of energy. He is classified as a “working-breed”, meaning that he will need help exhausting himself and keeping his mind busy. Zeke was returned to the shelter twice due to his high energy levels. He would do best with a fenced yard and another dog to play with. He is gentle while playing with dogs, but plays rough with people and uses his mouth a lot to “play-bite”. This energy will need to be redirected towards acceptable objects, like bones. He knows to sit & lay down, is housetrained, and crate trained. He tugs a lot on a leash. Since Zeke has been abandoned by other owners, he does display separation anxiety and tends to bark when his humans are out of site. He sleeps quietly in a crate at night, so long as his human is in the same room. Despite having a lot of energy, he is a super sweet dog. He loves to snuggle on the couch at night and lay on your chest. He’s also happy to lay on the floor near your feet. Zeke will be a great companion dog. He is very loyal. He is treat motivated and will be easy to train, so long as it is consistent.
Zeke is being fostered in Syracuse, NY and is available for an adoption fee of $375.00.
