Meet Zip... aka Zipper! He is named after his love of running... very fast! He is just over a year old and weighs about 18lbs. Even though he's considered a small dog, his legs are very long and he can keep even out run the larger dogs. Although he's very comfortable and confident when running, he really is a bit of a shy boy that takes a little bit of time before warming up to new folks. He is very food motivated though, so with just a little patience and a few treats, he quickly becomes an affectionate boy. Other small, friendly, playful dogs helps Zip feel more confident and trusting with people so he must have another dog in the home. Because he loves to run like the wind, he must have a securely fenced backyard. He would do best in an adult only home or with kids over 14yrs old and because of his young age, he should not be left home alone for more than 5-6hr intervals.
