Zoom, STAR # 1732

Before you read Zoom’s bio and fall in love with him, we want to be upfront about his needs. Zoom is scared of tiny humans not having the best introduction to kids early on. His adoptive home needs to have no children under the age of 16. Zoom, aka Zoomie, is your typical “everyone who meets him falls in love with him immediately” Aussie. He has LOTs of energy but will slow down for cuddles.  He is a gentle guy and wants belly rubs and behind-the-ear scratches all day. He LOVES toys, especially tennis balls and squeaky toys, but what is loves more than toys is playing in the pool. Water is his favorite thing of all time. Zoom is crated when his foster family isn’t home, and he sleeps in his crate all night. His foster family has cats, and he loves to chase them, so his adoptive home needs to be cat free. Zoom is very loyal and wants to be around his people. He’d do best with people that are home more often than not. Zoom is also a very vocal dog. He barks when he’s happy, hungry, excited, playing, etc. Zoom is a typical Velcro dog, following his foster mom everywhere she goes in the house (literally everywhere)!

More…  Zoom was picked up at Austin Animal Center. He has had two adoption fails where there were cats and/or kids and/or chaos and it didn’t work out so well.  STAR reached out to a behavior specialist to have Zoom evaluated and confirmed he’s a good boy with great potential.  He will need an Aussie savvy owner and a home with no young children and no cats.  He’s a lot of puppy and a bit of a spaz.  He loves to meet new people, is curious, loves water, but can also be fearful in new situations and loud noises.  He’s a wonderful, handsome, and loving dog.

Zoom’s assessment write-up by the behavior specialist will be provided to prospective adopters with tips on how to ensure Zoom’s success.
