German shepherd Zac resigned but accepts shelter life needs to be rescued

Spread the love

At the Downey Shelter in California, Zac needs someone to rescue him. The shelter has sent out a rescue plea, and this gorgeous golden brown and sable colored three-year-old has been approved for public adoption.

“Zac is ok for public adoption. He is assertive with other male dogs and has a gentle-dainty play style. The adopting party should be made aware that Zac may challenge when corrected. Calm Female Dogs Only Required at this time. Adults Only Required,” the shelter dog’s shelter notes indicate.

“When being corrected in playgroup, he appeared to want to challenge back, but he recognized, that Playgroup Handlers are the Pack Leaders and fell back in line. A smart GSD.”

Zac’s advocate has spent time with him and stated whenever the dog is approached at his kennel, he is poised and ready for a treat.

“He never wags his tail for me, or gifts me a smile, but he is dutiful, which I like and admire. Zac is resigned at the shelter; he knows he has to stay and he accepts it with an impassive face…”

It should be noted that Zac is leery of strangers and is waiting to build a bond with that special someone so he truly can trust again.

“His aloofness traits will dissipate once he is out of the shelter, in a home with an experienced gsd owners, with consistency, love and leadership.”
