Zirco would love a home willing to give him the attention he deserves!
He was found as a stray in an area that is known for dogs being dumped.
He would love a home with 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. Zirco gets along well with other dogs. He knows sit, down (needs more training on down), drop it, stay (needs more work on this one). Learning to not jump on people. Foster mom says he’s a great dog, learns very quickly and wants to please.
He loves to be petted, but not overly snuggly basically because of his size. He loves playing outside, running around. Does not try to dig out, but might dig a hole to lie in. He does rush doors and needs to be considered a flight risk in his new home. He loads up in regular car, tries to load up in an SUV, but needs help if it’s real high and rides well in the car. He is food motivated to the point he has a hard time training with treats because he’s constantly looking for the treats in your hand. Responds well to being praised, eager to please.
Zirco is truly a great dog ad would love to be yours!

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.
