Meet EVAN PETERS
AGE/GENDER: 6 month old, male
BREED: Lab/Pit mix (maybe, we don't really know)
TEMPERAMENT: Sweet and friendly
HOUSE TRAINING: He is doing well when taken out on a regular schedule. He is a baby so he'll need a consistent schedule with multiple opportunities daily to go outside while he works on it. Puppies should not be considered reliable in regard to housetraining until 6-12 months of age. They're a lot like toddlers, who require diapers!
CRATE TRAINING: Good, he's young and trainable!
OTHER DOGS: Good! He will need continued socialization, like all puppies!
CATS: Good! Continued socialization will be important!
CHILDREN: Dog-respectful children, 8 and older
ADOPTION DONATION: $600.00
HEALTH: Evan came to us in rough shape. He was severely underweight from starvation and had a broken left front leg with puncture wounds. Fortunately, while with us, his leg healed and did not require amputation! Dogs with broken bones will have arthritis in that area as they age, so they should be on a joint diet now that includes omega oils as well as glucosamine/chondroitin. Prior to adoption, puppies will be altered, microchipped, flea treated, and dewormed. Puppies are given vaccination boosters in our care; however, adoptive families will be responsible for the remaining vaccinations that puppies need. Your adoption donation goes toward the cost of this vet care as well as transportation and general care costs.
HISTORY: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find him a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do!
NOTES FROM FOSTER HOME: Evan is a puppy so he's playful and has a lot of puppy energy! He is super cute and fun, but a lot of work. His forever family should be committed to lots of training - obedience, housetraining, and socialization. This will ensure that he grows into a confident, well behaved adult! Puppies' personalities are dependent on their environment, and the structure and training they are given, in addition to socialization. Their personalities continue to grow and be shaped by their new adoptive families. Puppy daycare and socialization classes or puppy kindergarten are highly recommended for their personal development. He will more than reward you for all your hard work with lots of love, loyalty, and laughs.
Evan is a loving boy who is learning manners. He greets all things exuberantly. People. Dogs. Everything. He loves to nibble on you when he's happy, almost like reciprocating pets. He is a sensitive little guy and does not always understand why other dogs may not like his over-enthusiastic greetings. He is learning not to jump and settle. While he is a little bit of a wild and crazy guy, he DOES snuggle. A lap is an invitation for him to crawl in. He loves to be with you and will actually lie next to you quietly while you work or watch TV... once he gets his zoomies out. Despite his rough beginning, this boy is full of love and happiness. Every day is a new day for him and he looks forward to it with arms wide open. He ready to seize the day and see what adventures await him. If you're looking for someone who is seriously optimistic, he's that kind of dog!
All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and either a Martingale collar or a harness, depending on each dog's particular needs.
Welcome to Motley Zoo Animal Rescue. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization that is run by volunteers. Motley Zoo does not have a brick and mortar shelter location. Instead, all our rescue animals are cared for in private foster homes where the animals receive one-on-one care and attention in a home environment until permanent placement is found. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request an adoption application and we will work toward approving you as an adopter with our rescue so that we can set a time for you to meet!

Thank you for considering adopting a dog in need!
