Adoptable Dog of the Week-Zenon
Big ears, big smile, big heart! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Zenon, a year and a half old Shepherd mix from Fargo, North Dakota. This feisty little gal is spayed, tested for heartworm, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. She doesn’t get along with cats but loves friendly dogs, and needs her new furever family to be adult-only.
Her name might be inspired by a Disney’ movie, but Zenon is still waiting for her happily ever after. And hopefully, it won’t take long- ‘cause this pooch is an absolute catch. Loving, charming, and playful, Zenon might act all big and tough the first time she meets you, but rest assured, as soon as this cutie pie realizes that you have a few crunchy treats in your pocket… She’ll become your best friend in an instant! What can I say, this doggo has her priorities.
Zenon is a young dog who needs an experienced adopter, someone who will know how to set the rules in an assertive yet positive manner. She needs consistency and training to reach her potential- it would be a good idea to get a professional trainer if you feel you’re not up to the task. Zenon would blossom in a family that is willing to put in some effort to help mold her into a fantastic pet- the foundations are all there.
As an active dog, Zenon would do best with adopters who are active themselves and wouldn’t mind walks, playtime, and adventures. She’d love a house with a backyard, too, where she could safely play on her own. When it comes to her socialization, Zenon does good with other well-mannered dogs but doesn’t like cats. Also, this gorgeous fawn girl is large and young, a combination that is not ideal for young kids- her excitable nature and big size can lead to her inadvertently knocking someone over during playtime.
