May I introduce Zeba who is 5 years old. He is neutered and microchipped and we are told vaccinated. This is what the volunteer had to say about him:
“Barked when I knocked on the door. Kept in kitchen with another male behind a gate. Bounded up and greeted me. No aggression whatsoever. Lovely, happy dog who looks in great condition. Only lead walked for 10 minutes a day. I spent an hour with his owners. Mum is asthmatic so cannot walk Zeba – even with a halti on. She clearly loves the dog and has owned him since 8 weeks of age. Dad does the walking but no free running. Zena is a large GSD who is not getting anything like the exercise he needs.
I cannot stress enough how lovely Zeba is – with exercise and some training he would be the perfect family dog . he might be a tad bouncy for very young children and he is a no to cats (never seen livestock). He cannot have treats in any form as he has an allergy but has a dental stick once daily. Good health, basic diet of dry biscuits, tinned food/cooked chicken. Can be left/good in car/no chewing. The only question is how Zeba would react off lead with other dogs as this is not part of his current life sadly. Seeing that he lives happily with a small dog it would seem, with the right training, this would not be a problem. He is also good at the vets.
If my own dog wasn’t so dominant I would have him like a shot – someone is going to get a fantastic friend.”
Zeba has been in foster for a while but has now been adopted by his foster dad.
