Meet Zeppo

Hi my name is Zeppo! I'm a 10-month old Australian Shepherd male. I am considered to be a Double Merle, which means my mother and father both carried the Merle gene (color pattern). When two Merle dogs breed, this can cause vision or hearing issues. As a result, I am deaf.

I'm a very sweet and extremely smart young guy. I just want to be loved. I like being wherever my foster Mom is. I don't care much about balls or Frisbees. Instead, I would rather cuddle with you on the couch. I do like the occasional stuffed toys that I can destroy.....I am still a puppy, ya know. I enjoy playing with my foster siblings. The red one likes to wrestle and the blue merle likes to play chase in our yard.

Since I am deaf, my foster Mom is teaching me hand signals, which is something my forever home will want to continue so they can "talk" to me. I know what "good boy" and "watch me" mean. I am working on: sit, lay down and come here. Whenever she wants me to go somewhere, she points to me. I guess pointing is ok for some things. I personally like to see the sign for "eat" the most!

I have mastered house training and crate training I get a treats when I go in my crate and prefer to eat my dinner in my crate. I am very curious about cats. I just don't know what to do with them. They look at me weird and they smell funny. I'm good with other dogs and I ride well in a vehicle. My forever home should have a visible fence and no children under age 10.

I am up-to-date on all my vaccinations, microchipped and I am neutered. I will require monthly preventatives for heartworms, fleas and ticks. If you'd like to meet me, you can submit an application here: https://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
