From the Foster:

Zombie is a high energy pup who is constantly on the move. Zombie loves spending his time rough housing with his large foster fur brothers, playing fetch, chasing the squirrels, long walks on the trails, going to dog-friendly places to meet other dogs and people, exploring the backyard when he gives up pestering his foster fur brothers. If you’re an active person and dreamed of having a fur side kick Zombie could be your boy. Or if you currently have a dog that needs someone to play with then Zombie could be their partner in crime. Zombie also plays well with kids of all ages, especially if they’re willing to play an endless game of fetch. 

 

 

Zombie is a smart boy. At nearly 5 months old he knows his name, he can sit, lay, sometimes roll over and play dead (usually he mimics his foster fur brother).  I strongly believe he can learn anything if you stick with it. Also providing lots of treats- he is a treat driven dog. Not only does he have the smarts, but Zombie is far more handsome in person. We get so many compliments on this guy! 

 

 

Some other miscellaneous facts about Zombie: he sheds a little; he barks at the door, when the mailman passes through and sometimes when he plays; he hasn’t played with a cat before but I don’t think living with one would be an issue for him; he is 17lbs at 4 months and even though we can never be certain how big a puppy will be as an adult, the vet guesses he’ll be double that size at full growth; he needs work on a leash; his lips sometimes get stuck up on his gums causing him to look ridiculous, but don’t worry he’s use to us laughing at him by now; he chases his tail; he has acquired a taste for apples and bananas; he isn’t fond of baths; he sleeps on top of the covers; he’s not a fan of wearing clothes; he is teething so he needs someone to be understanding if you catch him chewing on non-dog things; he does great in a crate when we are not home (4 hours max); he sleeps through the night without needing to potty; he is potty trained in my home, but I have a doggy door with a fence which gives him the freedom to go as he pleases; he doesn’t dig; I haven’t seen him try to clear my privacy fence; does well with new people and dogs; as an odd obsession with jingly things attached to lanyards; sock thief. 

 

Zombie would do best in a home that would offer him a life with A LOT of stimulation whether it's frequent trips to doggy daycare, parks, a fur brother/sister that can keep up with him, a fenced yard to let him have free reign, a large family to entertain him or even a person or two that can be very active with him.  There are many ways to entertain a dog, but it's the matter if you're willing to do those things or have the means.
