Zane is a 2 year old, handsome, white and apricot colored pitbull with special needs due to a rough start in life. Zane came to Tri-County Animal Rescue Center as part of a humane case; Zane had been living in a home with 2 other dogs; one of those dogs, a pitbull like Zane, was confined for weeks in the cellar of that home without being fed, and she nearly starved to death. Zane was not malnourished to that degree, but he was kept crated almost all the time, and was underweight when he arrived at the shelter. It should come as no surprise then that Zane has resource guarding issues and is selective about the people he trusts. Still, there are many things about Zane to love; he never fence fights with any of the other dogs at the shelter; he exits and returns to his kennel on point, hardly glancing in another direction; he entertains himself in the yard with toys; those who have earned his trust are gifted with his special friendship and affection. There are times when Zane’s eyes just seem to be begging for a heart and home of his own, and when you look in his eyes you can almost hear him saying, “love me; I’ll love you back.” We believe that someone reading this right now could be the person Zane has been waiting for. Because of Zane’s special needs he will be most successful living in a home with no children, and with someone who has experience with large or bully breeds. The person who will be most successful adopting Zane must be willing to spend some time getting to know Zane, and must understand his need for the kind of leadership that is firm, but generous with loving, positive reinforcement.
