Zig (aka Opal)

LocationShelburne, VT
StatusAvailable for Adoption

Zig fka Opal is 1 1/2 years old (DOB 5-9-18), approx 40 lbs, female, vetted, and spayed. She is house and crate trained, great with other dogs (home with another dog preferred), and is deaf. Although she can’t hear, she knows hand signals for Sit, Down, Touch, and recall when you put out your hand. She has medium energy, is very sweet and extremely food motivated, and loves to learn. She loves other dogs and like any puppy, could use more training. Zig’s future furever family will get one free training session with A Click Away Dog Training to get you off on the correct foot! She would do very well in an active home with room to run and another dog (or two!) that can show her the ropes. Zig needs a quieter, consistent home; she could be in a home with older children as long as they are dog savvy and understand her. We would say probably not small children because it would be difficult to explain to them what Zig needs in her environment. She is potty trained, crate trained, and does experience some separation anxiety. She should be in a home that will not crate her more than 5-6 hours. Zig is a smart girl! She knows hand commands for Sit, Down, Touch, Recall (using hand or tug on long lead), and Leave It! Opal is extremely sweet, loving, food motivated, and excited to train. Since she is only 19 months old and deaf she will need a family that will stimulate her brain!
