From the Foster:

Hello, My name is Zippy!!! I am currently being treated for heartworm disease. If you're interested in adopting me, please apply to learn more and speak with our vet team!

I am really shy and timid with anyone that is new to me. I get scared and overwhelmed causing me to go into defense mode. Due to this, I have nipped at new people. However, once I get to know you, all I want to do is snuggle and love on you. 

My foster family did have another foster that I was able to play with but he was adopted. They are currently working with me on showing me that I can trust new people, and getting this fearful stage a thing of the past. I am a very smart guy and if I get off my leash I like to take long runs, making sure that everyone gets in their exercise while they play chasing me. If you are looking for someone that is very loving and calm, then I am the companion for you. (After I get to know you of course). Foster dad, says that I have the energy of Tigger from Winnie and the pooh. I have not seen that show so I disagree with him. I do however bounce up and down as soon as my foster parents show up at home after waiting for them. I am crate trained but it does make me cry at first because I want to be out and snuggling with the people I know! I do sleep in bed with my foster family and I steal dads pillow but it is okay, he just lays on me instead. I really enjoy when this happens and I feel loved! Please have patience with me in the start, it took me a full day and 1/2 to get used to my fosters and we have been snuggling ever since.
