Meet Zeke! He’s a 6 month old, 25lb Shepherd mix (and needs to put some weight on), who’s just filled with pure love. He is timid and careful, choosing to observe and engage when he wants to interact with new people. When left to his own devices, he curiously approaches with a wagging tail and a gentle pounce. He is house trained, and when walked will take care of business quickly each time (about 4-5 x day). He is very food motivated and is working on basic commands and learning how to walk stairs. Most times Zeke is as quiet as a church mouse and follows you like he’s your shadow. He will happily sit with you while you work or watch TV.
Zeke will bark initially at new visitors but easily settles down and is friendly. He loves the snow and has been playing in it and even took a sleigh ride in the lap of a trusted companion. He is frightened by loud noises and will find a quiet spot away from the area, keeping an eye on you from a distance. This lovebug would be best suited in a calmer environment, sweetly following his go to person and hoping to share plenty of cuddle time.
