Zap in TN
*****RECOVERED FROM HEARTWORM TREATMENT. READY FOR ADOPTION*****
Zap is aprox a 18-24month old Male DS.
Zap is the Dutch Shepherd that all Dutch Shepherd enthusiasts warn you about.....
Zap, long haired Dutch Shepherd. He was pulled from a high kill shelter and brought into foster care. Unfortunately, he had some health issues, including heartworm, that needed to be treated before he could find his forever home. But now.....he is so ready to make the move to this next phase of life.
Zap is approximately 60 pounds and extremely well muscled and athletic. He has excellent toy and hunt drive, and plays well with tugs. He is an excellent working prospect for a skilled owner/handler. He can be pushy and will do best with strict boundaries. However, he is also extremely affectionate and does not show any human based aggression. Zap does not do well with other dogs or small animals (cats..etc). His personal body awareness is poor and is not suited for a home with children. Zap has great food drive. The ideal home is with an experienced working dog owner who will take the time to bond with him and focus his strong drive productively. Due to his relatively feral start to life, he has had success independently rewarding himself for pushy behavior and he needs an owner/handler that will be able to prevent him from making poor choices. During down time though (when he has had appropriate mental and physical stimulation), Zap is an amazing cuddler and will chill on a dog bed and happily chew a bone.
