Meet Zeke! He's a 6 month old, 25lb Shepherd mix (and needs to put some weight on), who's just filled with pure love. He is timid and careful, choosing to observe and engage when he wants to interact with new people. When left to his own devices, he curiously approaches with a wagging tail and a gentle pounce. He is house trained, and when walked will take care of business quickly each time (about 4-5 x day). He is very food motivated and is working on basic commands and learning how to walk stairs. Most times Zeke is as quiet as a church mouse and follows you like he's your shadow. He will happily sit with you while you work or watch TV. Zeke will bark initially at new visitors but easily settles down and is friendly. He loves the snow and has been playing in it and even took a sleigh ride in the lap of a trusted companion. He is frightened by loud noises and will find a quiet spot away from the area, keeping an eye on you from a distance. This lovebug would be best suited in a calmer environment, sweetly following his go to person and hoping to share plenty of cuddle time. Thank you so much for your interest in adopting a dog from A New Chance Animal Rescue (https://anewchancear.org). We are a 501c3, tax deductible organization. ANCAR is a foster-based rescue, and we adopt within a 90 mile radius of Bedford Hills, NY. You will find the adoption application here: (https://anewchancear.org/adopt/adoption-application/). All fields on the application must be completed. Please read about the adoption process (https://anewchancear.org/adopt/adoption-process/) so you'll know what to expect when you submit. Our dogs are in foster care and we do NOT have a shelter or boarding facility. AN APPLICATION MUST BE COMPLETED IN FULL AND APPROVED BEFORE A DOG CAN BE MET. This is a firm policy. Our busy volunteers are not able to respond to questions about the dog or dog meeting requests in the absence of an application. We know these dogs very well because they are in foster care. Please read the profiles of the dog(s) you are interested in prior to submitting an application. If there are specific requirements stated (ie: Fenced Yard or Canine Friend Required) these are included because they are vital to the happiness, health, safety and adoption success of that dog. We are only able to save as many dogs as we have foster homes (https://anewchancear.org/foster/faqs/) and resources for. We provide medical care including vaccinations, testing, deworming, spaying/neutering and microchipping before transporting our dogs. We provide all supplies, preventatives and any follow up vet care necessary while they are in foster care. These costs are high and the number of lives we can save is entirely dependent upon donations from people like you. We do not receive funding from private foundations or government sources. If you can find room in your heart to help us, with any amount, we are truly grateful (https://anewchancear.org/help/donate/). We are a 501c3 organization, so all donations are tax-deductible. It is only through the kindness of supporters like you that we are 'changing lives...one tail at a time' by providing our dogs with 'A New Chance.' (https://anewchancear.org) Thanks so much.
