Meet Zorro

Zorro needs a HERO! Zorro is our longest resident at DAWS and has been in the shelter for over two years. During that time, this 70 lb. four-year-old shepherd mix has been working very hard on training and we believe his time has come to find his furever home!

Back in 2019, when Zorro first arrived to DAWS after being saved from a high kill shelter in Kentucky, he began developing some behavioral challenges, making it difficult to find him the right home. Through extensive training, Zorro has proved himself to be a pup that can develop solid friendships with humans, and even befriend select dogs.

Zorro has been trained using treats and he eagerly sits, lies down and gives a paw on command. He’s done very well with car rides. He has enjoyed many hikes, walks, and play-time with his volunteer team. Time and time again, he has shown what a good boy he is, he just needs to find that special person! With a dog like Zorro, he will need a very specific adopter...
