Can you give me a forever home???

Hi, my name Zac is 2 year old mixed breed male and weigh 25 lbs. My rescue mom thinks I may be a German Pinscher and/or Terrier mix. My owner gave me up to the rescue last year because I kept getting off my chain in the backyard and visiting the neighbors. Well do you blame me? It was awful lonely out there and how would you like being chained up? I just wanted to find someone to play with me.

My rescue mom is pretty fond of me. She tells me I'm great all the time! And I've trained her to give me treats when I do the tricks I know. Not to brag, but I'd have to say.....I'm one awesome little guy!

I have a great temperament and play well with other dogs, cats and children. I would prefer not to share my food or treats with my other doggie pals though. I am an active dog and would love an active family too that would play tug of war with me, fetch, frisbee, go on daily walks or even hiking! I think I would even like to compete in 4H competitions if I had a human brother or sister that I could teach the ropes.

I had some pretty awesome trainers at the Death Row Dogs program. They taught me commands such as sit, stay and lay down. They taught me several tricks too like shake, play dead, roll over, bow and more! They also taught me some K9 scent work. Did you know there are 3 levels of competition for that? My trainers would hide treats and boy was I ready to find them! My trainers and rescue mom were so proud of me.

My rescue mom also thought I should tell you a little bit about the Death Row Dogs training program. Which by the way, I was very lucky to get picked to go there. My trainers were so kind to me and taught me so much! At the Green River Correctional Complex in Central City, KY 22 dogs are selected to attend the 12 week training program. Each dog lives in a cell with two trainers. Did I mention how great my trainers were by the way? Woof, back on track....the training program is designed for the dog's unique behavior needs as well as basic obedience, house training, crate training, and of course, tricks. Each dog is given a Canine Good Citizen test prior to graduation.

DRD dogs are very popular and make AMAZING family members! Now wouldn't you like to add me to yours??? To learn more about the Death Row Dogs Program visit www.deathrowdogs.petfinder.com. We're on Facebook too!

Who We Are

WE ARE A SMALL RESCUE AND IT IS RAN FROM MY HOME IN SLAUGHTERS, KY. WE NAMED OUR RESCUE AFTER OUR RETRIEVER "ROWDY". WE RESCUED HIM AS A PUPPY FROM AN SHELTER THAT WAS AT CAPACITY.
