Zane has been in his foster home healing from the trauma of being a young pup in a shelter.    He has adjusted very well thanks to his four-legged foster siblings in the home.  His older sister keeps him in check and is showing him good manners while the younger ones teach him how to play.   Of course, his foster mom has taught him that humans are safe and can be trusted.

Zane is a sweetheart with a bit of a strong-willed streak, so he will need continued training and leadership to make sure he grows into a well-balanced adult.  He is great with other dogs and his home really needs another, we think an adult female would be best, but a male who is a good mentor may be okay also.  He is also learning that mouthing and jumping, while a normal puppy behavior, are not acceptable.   He’s still working on that.

What Zane did learn very early on in his foster home was when he should be fed.  He was very very thin when he came in, so he got extra meals throughout the day.  When Zane’s foster mom found him sitting by the door leading to the food, she knew he was a smart boy.  It was, indeed, mealtime.  Then, just to reinforce how intelligent he was, when his foster was just a little bit late with another meal, Zane went to the kitchen, retrieved his bowl, and brought it to her.  Yep, he’s a smart, growing boy.
