Biography

Zeke is a great and loving dog. My wife adopted him when he was a young puppy, and he has been a part of our family for 10 years! He has some anxiety issues, which have caused him to become a little snappy with most strange dogs, though he does occasionally meet friends he likes to play with, and has gotten along fine with our other dog for the last 5 years. He takes anxiety meds daily, which seem to really help him. He loves people, but is being chased around our house by our 2 year old toddler, and because of this spends almost all his time outside. He has never growled or snapped at her, but we don't feel comfortable with how much he does not like being around her. He knows the obedience basics, and will come when called, sit, stay, shake hands and lie down.

He is getting older, and occasionally has a small limp that the vet diagnosed as mild arthritis. Despite this he LOVES walks, and frequently comes with us on hikes. He loves playing in water and snow, but really hates thunderstorms. He really likes meeting new people and trying and get them to scratch his favorite spot right above his tail.
