Note from dog
Normally, I hand NOTE FROM DOG over to a pup who has earned a starring role in a current story, but this time around, I asked them if I might have their permission to write this NOTE because a lot has happened since we sent our last one at the end of November.


Zorro needs a Hero! He has been a shelter resident for over two years. He's a good dog and needs a loving, attentive human family to call his own.

“Sometimes, some dogs come in and require extra patience, training, and love—but that doesn’t make them anything less than great companions! Zorro is one of these pups. He came to DAWS back in 2019, and he is one of those dogs that wants to go home with people that will understand him. This handsome seventy-pound, four-year-old Shepherd mix has been waiting for a family for way too long. He enjoys being active. He is a fan of the outdoors—hiking and playing are among his favorites. Zorro loves to run around the yard and also enjoys cuddling on the couch. He is bright and knows basic commands. Treats are a great motivator for him, and he takes them very gently.

Zorro will require an experienced adult-only home with no other pets. Adopters that will provide further training, exercise, and enrichment are a must. His ideal humans are willing to slowly introduce Zorro to the people that matter and educate them on his dos and don’ts. He needs a person that is ok with adopting him with full disclosure about a complete bite and behavioral history. Please don’t be discouraged by something that your loving heart can improve. If you think you can be the hero that Zorro needs, please hit the adopt button today.”
