I was a little hesitant to take Zoose out…. Such an imposing looking gent and so eager to come out of a small space he is not used to …He was leashed easily, almost putting all by himself his neck inside the loop… He pulled quite a bit on the leash, marking a little his territory and sniffing a lot his new surroundings. He geared toward other dogs but not in an aggressive manner. Back in the shelter and off leash, Zoose was calm and relaxed. What a name for such a handsome dog!! May be because Zoose was found as a lost puppy during Hurricane Sandy…Zoose was relinquished into our care as his family had no time for a big dog anymore. He comes with great comments , in particular, good and playful with young children, loving with a male Chihuahua, good with strangers, playful, house trained, free of any handling issues and knowing a number of commands like relax, give hugs and give right and left paw…He really is a nice…big dog, an intact male who needs to be neutered as he shows a little too much interest in females in our playgroups. He loves to play ball and even retrieves. He can sit on command and jump for treats. He is a very tender big guy who loves caresses and kisses. Who could resist ? Zoose loves the attention and the care…Zoose did very well on his behavioral evaluation and is hoping to start a new chapter in his life with you…He survived Hurricane Sandy..He needs to overcome one more time a big bump on the road..with your help.. Zoose is at the Manhattan Care Center.

Say hello to Zoose, who might have meant to be named moose, since his size and personality fit the bill. He’s a Labrador all the way, playful, happy, silly, kind of pushy. Allows all petting, no resources guarding or food aggression, plays really well with other dogs. Walks really great only pulls hard to mark, which is probably caused by not being neutered. Lived with young children and apparently did great with them, gentle giant all the way. He’s actually a Hurricane Sandy survivor, he’s previous family found him in the wreckage, nothing to lead back to his original family so they kept him until now. And believe it or not they surrendered him now because apparently they don’t have the time to take care of him. He’s the class clown at ACC right now, really great family dog.
