Meet Zirco! This boy would love a home willing to give him the attention he deserves.
This boy was found as a stray in an area that is known for dogs being dumped.
Zirco would enjoy older kids to play with (has a little too much energy for toddlers or young kids), or an active young couple, or another dog his size.
He gets along well with other dogs. He knows sit, drop it, and is working on down and stay. He does learn very quickly. He is food motivated to the point he’s constantly looking for the treats in your hand, even if there aren’t any there!
Foster is also training him not jump on people when he gets excited.
Zirco loves to be petted. He loves playing outside, running around. Does not try to dig out, but might dig a hole to lie in the cool dirt.
He does rush doors, so he needs to be considered a flight risk in his new home near any doors that lead to an unenclosed area. He loves his car rides.
Zirco responds well to being praised and is very eager to please.
He is truly a great dog and would love to be yours!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
