Rescue Story:

My Mama came to Zoe's when she was pregnant. We were lucky to be born in warm, dry, safe place. I am now grown up and ready to find my forever home!

Date of Birth: June 2, 2022

Energy Level: High - I am full of fun puppy energy!

Size (adult): Large-XLarge

Adoption Fee: $450 for a fun loving pup like me. Such a deal!

Good with Dogs? Yes
I am still learning puppy manners when greeting other dogs but with proper introductions I get along great with little and big dogs
Good with Cats? Yes
With continued training and supervision I should do okay. I don't bother the cat unless she runs.
Good with Kids? Yes
With respectful playing, I get along great with kids, but older kids would be best, as I am a large bouncy puppy.

Critter Twitter:

Hi! I am Olympus, one of the last two Camera puppies to go up for adoption. I am so loving and kind. I love to snuggle up at nap time with my family and the kids Like all puppies, I explore my world with my mouth, a lot. If I am excited and want to play, I will probably let you know with my mouth when you try to pet me. I require continued positive reinforcement and training to help me redirect that energy to more acceptable places. I love going for walks and will need good sniffy walks or runs to help meet my energy needs. I love chewing, so hopefully I will have a basket full of toys in my new home. I'm smart and learning new skills every single day. If you think I would be a great fit for your family, please put in an application for me. I can’t wait to me you!

About my Behaviour:

I am having troubles letting my foster family know sometimes when I have to go outside but I am working on this. I don’t like to go outside in the cold or rain yet.
I am great in the crate when no one is home or at night. When the family is home, I would far rather hang out with them, then in my crate. Continued use is recommended to help manage my megaesophagus. I started puppy classes this month, and I currently know how to sit and I am working on stay. I love shoes, so you will need to keep shoes up and give me lots of chew toys. I resource guard a bit with toys, you will need to remember to always trade me for something good. My foster family is working on this with me and I am doing a lot better.

As a condition of adoption, we must register in a force free training class for puppies. We'll learn so much and bond and I can have some socializing time with other dogs in a safe environment, which is really critical for young pups!

How’s my Health?

I will be neutered, up to date on my vaccinations, dewormed and microchipped. Zoe's can not guarantee what breeds are in me or my size as an adult.

Now for some important information. I have congenital megaesophagus (ME). Megaesophagus means my esophagus is enlarged and basically, there isn't enough muscle tone to move food from the esophagus to the stomach. To remain healthy, dogs with megaesophagus require small frequent meals. I am fed 5 times per day. I will need to be upright for my meals, so I use a Bailey chair for all my meals. On top of small frequent meals in the chair, my megaesophagus is also managed with medications. My meds cost about $125/month. My adoption will include Zoe’s reduced vet care for my whole life. With this feeding regime and meds, I am thriving and growing and already am a big boy!
