Zinatan

Incoming/Foster Home Needed

Description

Male, 1 year, mixed breed, 32 lbs

As a little dog born onto the streets of Thailand Zinatan was lucky to survive. He was fed by kind local people in the area around the temple where he was found and managed to get by, scavenging for food and searching for a safe place to sleep every night. When Zinatan was only a few months old his feeders alerted Soi Dog Foundation's rescue team to his plight as they noticed that he had a wound on his hind leg. By the time he was rescued, the vets found that Zinatan’s bone was visible in the open, maggot infested wound and realized it would be impossible to save his leg. After his leg was amputated this brave little lad recovered well and is coping with life as a three legged pup. He is a friendly, sweet dog that is active and alert. He is overwhelmed by the busy shelter environment and can’t wait to find his forever family where he will finally be able to experience life as a beloved furry family member.

SHELTER ASSESSMENT: When I went inside the run, he was with other dogs. He doesn’t like when another dog approaches him (growling and showing teeth) but he didn’t have any fights in the run. His body was relaxed, he approached, I could pat him, he was interested in people and what was going on outside the run. He is an active dog. I put a leash on him, he moved away slightly. He walks to the airlock easily. Outside he pulled the lead at first. He is a confident dog, walks everywhere, he is not scared of anything. Whether I took him to a busy environment with the noise of construction workers or car noises, he still walked very well on lead. His body was relaxed, tail often up, mouth open, ears forward. He likes to explore environments, sniffing all the way. With other dogs he was interested and alert; he pulled the lead, went to approach and sniff, then moved away when I called and used the lead. He didn’t growl or show teeth. Off-lead he was exploring confidently, he didn't approach, his body was relaxed, tail up, he was interested in toys, but he didn't keep hold. When I approached him, he let me pat and his body was relaxed, tail up. NOTE: Zinatan had recently moved into his run when report was done so his reaction to the other dogs should be viewed with this context in mind. Updated feedback on his interaction with other dogs in his run has been requested.

Once the dog arrives in care, they will go into foster care for 1 week so we can get to know their personalities better. After the first week, we will post their adoption biographies and review adoption applications or announce that the foster provider has adopted them.
At that time, if you would like to be considered in the event they are accepting applications, please fill out an adoption application.

This dog will be arriving from Thailand, date TBD.

Adoption costs: $650.00
