This is lovely little Zorro, a rough coated small podenco who is about 2-3 years old. Zorro is the most charming, sweetest boy you could ever meet. He is such a good boy we really cannot fault him; great with other dogs, adores people, loves his cuddles and is just a ray of sunshine!! Always wagging his tail, always happy to see you. He was originally rescued in Spain and was in one of our foster homes there until he travelled to the UK a few months ago. He then went to a wonderful home with a young family, sadly however, they felt that it was not safe to keep him as he kept getting out of the front garden which faced a road. It was proving very difficult for them to keep the house secure with their very young children who kept opening doors. So we decided it would be in his best interests to move him to a foster home.
Zorro is very well behaved, he is easy going, not demanding, quiet, and just an angel. He is fine to be left on his own for a few hours and is not destructive, he walks really well on the lead, he is very food orientated and receptive to training. However he is a podenco so awareness of the breed would be preferable as he can sometimes have slight selective hearing. Though he does not seem to have a very high prey drive, he just wants to have a good run and then come back to you. He does love being with you and he squeezes through small gaps to be with you, so he will need a very secure garden. Although he does love being with you he is still fine to be left on his own. It is if he has the chance to come with you, then he will try and sneak out of any little holes in the garden. He loves nothing more than snuggling up to you or a snooze on the sofa.
Zorro is also a good traveller and is happy to settle down in the car on journeys. Zorro would love an active home with a family who are about a lot just because he does love the attention. Although he would cope fine being left for a few hours a day. He is great with children and fine with cats. However we do feel he would prefer a quieter, rural home with a good sized secure garden that he can have a good run in. Ideally with another dog or dogs so that he can have a play or doggy friends out and about. Also someone who is happy to work with his recall and understands the breed. Anyone who adopts Zorro will have a very loyal and special friend for life, who will always bring a smile to your face as he is just such a gem.
Zorro is neutered, vaccinated and has a pet passport. He is fostered in Herefordshire / Powys borders.
