Zak is a spunky senior Jack Russel looking for a special adopter who will spend his golden years with him. Zak is a big personality in a tiny cute body. He LOVES fetch, toys, short walks, and a good treat. He is looking for a calm house with few or no steps. His short little legs make it difficult for him to go up and down but he doesn't mind being carried. Zak lives with multiple cats and completely ignores them. Because he is a typical stubborn & moody Jack Russel, he would prefer a home without kids or other dogs. He would do fine with older teenagers who could throw his ball but respect his space. Zak is very charismatic and loyal to his person. He has some age related hearing loss which has caused some anxiety; he takes anxiety medication every night & it has helped him a lot. He loves being silly and he always keeps us laughing. Zak's other special need is that he has Cushing's disease. That means that his body makes too much cortisol and he is on an inexpensive medication that he will likely be on for life. A symptom of Cushing's is frequent urination so he has occasional accidents. He wears a belly band in the house "just in case" but is starting to get better bladder control on his new meds. He is not crated in his foster home and is left in a gated off room when his foster parents are away. Zak is a quirky boy who has a lot of special needs but he makes up for it in cuddles and devotion. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines.
