Zorro's Story

Meet Zorro!  Zorro may not be a masked, sword wielding vigilante, but he will surely do anything to win over the hearts of the perfect forever family!  He is an eager and exuberant boy who is hoping to find someone who shares his passion for life and will help him to become the best dog he can be!  Zorro was found as a stray and brought to PAWS to help give him a better life and find him a place to call home.  He has a lot of energy to spend and would love to be a part of an active family who enjoys going for multiple walks or runs throughout the day!  Zorro also has a passion for exploring and would be super stoked to go on tons of outdoor adventures in the future!  Zorro is still working out how to be a good boy and it seems like this boy has not had much structure in his life.  This handsome fellow needs some guidance when it comes to training and minding his manners.  He hopes to find an engaging family who will help him develop into the best boy he can possibly be!  He will surely thrive as an adult as long as his family is fully committed to his training!  With his alert, inquisitive nature, Zorro is sure to excel in this area!  Being highly food motivated certainly helps as Zorro loves to work and earn his food!

Zorro is searching for a home with an experienced owner and without young children.  He loves his toys and special chews so much that he is not a fan of sharing them and absolutely adores soaking up all the affection for himself!  Zorro do best as the only pet in the home so he doesn’t have to share his food, toys, or love from his humans.  Zorro recently spent some time in a foster home where he did very well when left alone in a crate and is almost fully housebroken!  He is also completely in love with all of his toys!  Some of his favorite playtime activities include eating from a Kong dispenser toy, chasing after tennis balls, and running around with a good ole rope toy in his mouth!  Zorro can also be extremely affectionate and loves when it’s time to wind down and snuggle up on the couch!  He enjoys being near his people, but is also completely fine with curling up in a cozy dog bed.  Just as long as he has a comfy spot, he’ll be completely content!  This sweetheart does love his walks, so much that he can get extremely excited on a leash.  He would love to find a strong and confident handler with good leash control who will be able to help him walk like the perfect gentleman right by their side!  If you feel you can provide the perfect home for this excitable love bug, then come out and meet him today!

  • I'll take as much exercise as I can get!
  • I love playing with Kong toys.
  • Did someone say 'treat'?  I'll take them all!
  • I'd love to be your running buddy.
  • You + a tennis ball = my perfect day.


  • I would love to find a home with children 15+.
  • I prefer to be the only pet in the home.
  • I'd prefer a home where I don't have to share my food or toys.
