Zeke was rehomed in March 2018.

My name is Zeke and I’m now going on 2 years old.  I was rescued from a sad situation but the good folks at Safe Humane Chicago who work with the court system, took me in, and helped me get rescued by NorthStar.

I’ve spent the last month with the good trainers Country View Vet Clinic with board and train program.  I’m happy to report that I’ve progress very well and am confident in my obedience.  I’ve learned all the good ones too – like sit, stay, come, lay down and touch. I love playing fetch but sometimes I just want to chew on the ball when I get back so it’s smart if you always carry a spare to distract me with it. I learned how to go potty outside pretty quickly too! I’m a quick learner and I would be happy to learn more!

I’ve been around children as young as 5 years old with no concerns. Unless the children are playing directly with me, I don’t pay much attention.  I get along with other dogs, but right now we think I would do best as an only dog with lots of visits with other dogs to keep up my social skills.   I find kitties extremely interesting and would like to chase them most of the day so a home with them would be best for the kitties.

I’ve has been crate trained for short periods of time. And I do better with a blanket over the crate to reduce stress and absolutely needs a chew toy.  But I really do prefer to spend time in a dog room, rather than a crate as it allows for more freedom to move around while my family is away.

I’m neutered, HW-negative and UTD on vaccinations!  Also, as a Safe Humane alum, I come with free behavioral training for life!
