Zafai is a handsome hound mix. He has tall slender legs but he is not as big as a full hound. He is roughly 55 lbs with a beautiful coat, bright eyes and gorgeous expression.
This sweet boy can get nervous to start but warms up quickly. He was found abandoned in the backyard and was withering away for at least several weeks when a property manager found him. She called us for assistance and we accepted him into our program.
He is friendly, playful, loves toys, is affectionate and gives kisses. He would be great as an only dog and is young at around 2 yrs of age. He has food aggression/guarding probably due to his prior starvation. He needs to be fed in a separate room and not be permitted in the same room when food is being prepared. Put the dish down and walk away and out of the room. Do not come back in until he is completely done. He will think you are taking his food away otherwise and since he was starving he will aggress at that point.
We find as long as you do this, he is very manageable. He would be great as a working dog. We have enrolled him in a wonderful training enrichment program since August 1st to help him and is trainer gives him A+ grades and she can now remove his food bowl during sessions.
