Zion: 3 year old black

January 19, 2018

Just wanted to update you all on how far I’ve come!  As you know, I never really got a chance to spend any time around other dogs, but I’m beginning to understand that they can really be fun!  It’s amazing how much you learn by just watching and hanging out with some really friendly dogs.  They seem to want to chase this thing called a ball, and it kind of looks like fun.  If you watch the video, you’ll see that I’m starting to get the hang of it!

Also, my leash manners are really good now and I love, love, love my walks.  I just really want to please and will be happy to do whatever you ask of me – especially if there is a treat at the end!

Don’t you just LOVE to take long walks?  Me too!

How about some jogging?  Me too!

Wanna crawl through some tunnels or climb on top of some stuff?  Guess what?  Me too!

I love being with my people, and really work hard to try and please them.  I am working on good manners when I get excited, and I learn very quickly ‘cause everyone says I’m so smart!  Don’t tell them, but I really do it for the treats!

Check out my videos where I’m showing off a bit.

I’m still kinda scared of other dogs, though I have met a couple through the fence that seem like they might be fun to play with.  I might like older, calmer dogs but no young puppies for me!

I sure would love to find an active home where I can stretch my legs during the day, show off my many talents, and then cuddle with you at night.  Wanna share your home with me?


I am great with mellow dogs!  See my walking with my new friend!

Meet 3 yr. old Zion!

Zion is a handsome, petite Lab mix whose owners surrendered him when his Dad became sick and was hospitalized.  Suddenly he found himself in a scary shelter.

His Dad had obviously worked with him, as he knows basic commands and will be happy to demonstrate them for you!  And he loves to take long walks – he’d probably be a GREAT jogging partner.  He also loves challenges, both mental and physical, and would undoubtedly be a great agility dog.  He is a willing learner – especially if there is a treat at the end!

It is obvious he has not been socialized with dogs, as he is shy and hesitant around them.  So he really needs to be in a home without dogs.

Zion would probably do best with older kids, as he can get pretty excited and jumps up.  That is something he needs to work on.

Zion has learned to walk nicely on leash, and really wants to please.  He is a willing learner who needs clear expectations.  He is a boy who wants someone to take charge and keep him mentally stimulated, and he’ll reward you with love and kisses, and be happy to curl up on your bed with you at night.  For more information on Zion, please contact susan.stauffer@comcast.net.
