Zecil is a one year old pointer/lab mix. He is chocolate in color and has short hair so he doesn't shed much at all. He LOVES TO PLAY WITH EVERYONE!! He is most happy when he is playing with his dog friends or his people. He is active because he is young but he's very smart and knows some basic commands. He was taken from his scum bag owner who was kicking him across the road. The police officer who witnessed this became Zecil's 'savior'. He fell in love with this boy - but his condo won't allow dogs over 30lbs. Officer Mike visits Z everyday at the shelter and was just told by the ACO that if he isn't adopted or moved out of the shelter, he will be put to sleep. It's the shelter's rules. THey've kept him alive for weeks past his 'time' because they love him but he keeps getting passed over. The reason - he jumps when he sees people coming to visit him. He gets so excited that he will be taken out of his jail cell that people mistake this for HIGH energy and it turns them off. WHEN HE IS OUT OF HIS CAGE, HE CALMS DOWN AND IS JUST WONDERFUL. Please give him a chance.. he's a great dog.. very friendly and loving. He's beautiful and his soul is just so pure. Look in his eyes and you can see the loyalty. He is vetted and will be ready to go home on the weekend.. Please give this boy a chance.. he's a great dog.
