About Zeke

Hi, my name is Zeke! I am a sweet, gentle 8-year old male that loves food and hanging out with people. I’ve been at my foster home for almost 3 weeks now and they tell me I’m a 10+ on the sweet and gentle scale. I’m pretty calm and low key. I love to lounge around the house. I especially like taking naps on the cool kitchen floor, or in a sunbeam on the carpet.

I know basic obedience commands like “sit”, “down” and “shake”. I am very good walking on a lead, but I will tug on the lead when I see another dog. I’m generally a very calm dog, but if someone walks near the front door or I see someone through the window I will usually bark. I am a bit cautious sometimes when meeting new people. I like to take my time. Usually after a few minutes my tail will start wagging and we might be best friends.

I do have a sneaky side. If you don’t keep an eye on me at your mealtime, I will sneak food off the table or kitchen counter. This might be part of the reason I am overweight. My foster home is working with me so I can learn this is not Ok, and I should not be eating people food. The veterinarian says I am still a bit overweight at about 94 lbs.

I am housebroken and I will stay in a large or XL crate, but it’s not my favorite place to be. I’m well behaved so I really don’t need to be in a crate that often. I did live with smaller dogs at my previous home and I was fine around those dogs. I recently spent 4 days with another DAR&E foster dog at my house. She is a 2 year old and we got along really well. I did not like her eating my food though. I might be the perfect dog for you!
