Meet Zayn (Happy & Dog Friendly Boy, Excellent Jogging Buddy) - FOSTER

Woof! Hello! My name is Zayn, and I am a young shepherd / boxer mix. I am a medium-sized doggie (I weigh around 60 lbs) with gorgeous caramel fur and chocolate brown eyes. I am a sweet, happy, wiggly doggie who has yet to meet a person he doesn't like. What can I say? I'm a social butterfly. :-)

I did really well on my behavior test. I was tolerant of all handling, enjoyed being petted (purr! hehehe!), and readily shared all my food and toys. I have to tell you, I really love nibbling on a rawhide. Yummy! But I am glad to give even my beloved rawhide up when asked. I am a generous and easygoing fella!

I walk very nicely on my leash, can sit and give paw on command, and have good manners. I adore being out and about and would make an excellent walking companion, especially for someone who is active. I also really enjoy playing with my toys. You should see me chase down a ball and retrieve it. Maybe I would even do well at agility!

I tested very well with children of all ages and was respectful and polite. However, my larger size and puppy energy -- I can be a little nibbly sometimes! -- might not make me the best fit for a very small kid. I bet I would be perfect for older children and teens. I would just love to have some human siblings!

Guess what else! I am super dog friendly. I love playing with my fellow dogs, and I have yet to meet a pup I do not love! I am all tail wags and play bows when I see a dog! If you have another dog of your own at home, please bring him or her along when you come to visit me.

One of my human friends said this about me:

"Zayn is just a big puppy! He can be a little goofy at times, but he corrects so well and is extremely smart. You should see all the commands he knows! I have run several miles with Zayn into our neighboring state park, and he is an excellent jogging companion. He would be just perfect for an active owner, and especially for a jogger. Zayn is such a good boy. I just love him so much!"

I'm currently living in foster at a doggie boarding facility in northern NJ. I am so lucky to be here ... I get to play with doggies every single day! What fun! If you would like to meet me, please call my shelter at (201) 547-4147 or email

Thank you for reading all about me. This silly sweetheart with the soulful eyes and the heart of gold can't wait to meet you (and give you a kissy and lots of wiggles!). Let's make that happen soon!

Love, Zayn xoxo
