Meet Zeke

This guy is ~1-2 years old young adult that came to ACDRA from a shelter as heartworm positive stray. He weighs in at 42lbs, and is up to date on all vaccinations, preventatives, and is neutered. Zeke completed his heartworm treatment and the vet says everything looks good. We have started upping his exercise and he is enjoying his daily walks; he stills needs a little practice with the leash, but is happily wagging his tail on our short hikes around the neighborhood.

Zeke is extremely protective of his home, and will need work with slow greetings of strangers and strange dogs, when at home or in his yard. He would not do well in a home with frequent visitors. When around other dogs he will get nippy if they are excited. He like things nice and calm.

He is perfectly fine with the other dogs in the home, he will nip at them if they start acting up, and on short social visits with larger dogs we have had no issues. He should not be off leash with a smaller dog or around children as he does have a high prey drive and will go after anything running in front of him.
Zeke is a couch potato, and is more than happy to climb up in your lap and sleep when you sit down, he is low and slow during the day, and has been a great companion when working at home, he is housebroken, and knows basic commands. He has free roam of the house during the day, and has found a favorite dog pad to crash on when it’s quiet. He is crate trained and has had no issues overnight or during the day in his crate.

Zeke needs a nice quiet home, He should not go to a home with any children.
Zeke is being fostered in Jessup, MD and is looking for his forever home. If you think you are it, or have any other questions about Zeke, please reach out and contact johan.stewart@gmail.com.
