Zero’s a hero! This boy has been through a lot in life but it hasn’t dulled his spirit one bit. He was found at a kill shelter in Texas where a good samaritan took pity on him and took him into boarding for a year. Zero joined Lucky Dog Refuge in October 2020. Although they try to make the shelter as homelike as possible, he has never known life in an actual home, despite being 5 years old.
They have a foster who will take him for sleepovers occasionally and he loves it. Having never lived in a home before, he is a little socially awkward and loves sneakers and shoes – especially if you’re wearing them! He is an incredibly sweet and funny dog…just different. So we are looking for a patient, experienced, and loving owner. He is crate trained (loved it in fact!) and can be in a home with other dogs, as long as they are introduced properly. (No cats!) He would do well with older children, 15 and up. 
This handsome boy’s ears are purely ornamental – he has zero hearing! – but he is so well adjusted, it might take you a while to notice. He is full of spunk and energy.
Given his deafness and his high energy and strength, Zero is looking for an EXPERIENCED dog owner with plenty of patience to help to adjust to his new life and teach him the rules. But once he adjusts, he will make a wonderful companion.
Homes with children over 15 only.

We do not know the exact breeds of our dogs; any mention of breeds are best guesses and not guaranteed.

We try to keep our dogs within 200 miles of the rescue. In a case like Zero, we would like to have him closer by so that we can help the adopter as he transitions into living into a home for the first time. So he could go to a home within 200 miles of Stamford CT, but we do try to be a resource as much as possible as our dogs settle into their homes. Typically, we ask potential adopters who come from that far of a distance to do a meet and greet at the rescue first. If the dog does not go home the same day, we often will drive to meet the adopter half way.
