Zeke is one happy young Australian Shepherd who is ready for his forever home. He is about 1 year old, is a nice weight at 42 pounds, and has a nice wavy black tri coat and docked tail. Zeke is super smart and eager to please. He is housebroken, crate-trained and is quickly learning his basic obedience commands. He is food-motivated and praise-motivated – a pleasure to train! He walks nicely on leash and is a great passenger in the car.
Zeke loves people and is up for any game his foster mom wants to play. He would be a great running or jogging partner, and he is even starting to learn the agility jumps! He still has some bouncy puppy in him, so he would do best in a home without very small children – he could accidentally knock over a small child. Zeke also loves to play with other dogs. He does have a ‘big-dog” play style with lots of lunging, jumping and running, so he may be a bit too much for very small dogs. He has not been cat-tested, but our guess is that he is a natural cat-chaser. Overall, we would describe Zeke as a medium-Velcro, medium-energy young Aussie. He loves a good romp but then settles nicely for some couch time or a nap.
The ideal home for Zeke is an active one, with a person or family who is ready to have a smart, loving Aussie join them in adventures, exercise and fun! He would benefit from an experienced owner who can continue his training, and a fenced yard so that he can get his workouts in the safety of an enclosed space. Another confident, playful dog would be fine, but no children under the age of 12 and no cats please. Zeke is an amazing young and happy guy who has so much love and fun to give. If he sounds like your perfect dog apply today! Zeke is fostered in Hillsborough, NC.
