Hi future family! My name is Zero, will you be my hero? Like my namesake from the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas, I am a loyal guy with a very sweet demeanor; nothing makes me happier than making my friends and family happy! I love hanging out with and playing with my doggie pals so I would do best in a home with another canine companion. I enjoy chin scratchies, playing in the back yard with my furry foster bro, a game of tug, and chewie sticks. I am learning a lot in my foster home and am mostly potty and crate trained - I would rather be playing, but eventually I settle down in my crate if you need to leave home for work or errands. Fetching Tails requires adopters of young dogs like me to sign us up for training classes, and I am eager to work my brain to see how much more I can learn! I can't wait to be your best furry friend for life, so I hope you fill out an adoption application soon!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
