TERRIERIFIC! A 9-month-old Yorkshire Terrier-Bichon Frise mix (born 8/26/2022), Zuma is a little guy, about 5 lbs, with a larger-than-life personality. He is an energetic, happy-go-lucky puppy who loves everything and everyone he meets. Zuma gets along well with the five dogs in his foster home. He is also good with kids, although he doesn’t discern between children’s toys and dog toys so he should be supervised with playthings. Also, because of his small size, children in his home must be dog savvy and extra-gentle. Zuma is very active and if no one is available to play with him, he will entertain himself with balls, stuffies, and chew toys. When Zuma is not playing, he is very affectionate and wants to cuddle and be the recipient of your love and attention. He prefers to be with you all the time and will be your shadow.
Zuma is working on his house habits and is doing well with an established routine and frequent trips outside. Zuma sleeps in a crate in his foster parents’ bedroom at night and is also in his crate when they are not home. He is still very much a puppy and will continue to need socialization and training to learn good doggie manners and become a canine good citizen. For a little guy, he is very athletic! He loves to go for walks two to three times a day. Zuma is ready to have a family of his own. If your family is looking for a playful, fun-loving companion, he may be just the puppy for you.
