About Zilla

His name is Zilla – like Godzilla. But he’s a really sweet dog, not that big, and he doesn’t know how to fight a monster!

Zilla is very gentle, affectionate, and loves people and attention. He will do best in a house with a yard since he loves to run around and play in the snow. He has tremendous energy. He loves to play with his squeaky toys, but he won’t catch them. He would prefer to watch them drop and then go pick them up. He slowly learn how to tug, but due to his gentle nature he will let go easily.

When Zilla first arrived at our home, he had an issue reacting to cars on walks. Since then, he’s gotten better, but he’s still improving. He will still sometimes react to cars by stopping and watching them pass.

He’s kennel trained and sleeps in there at night. He’s very responsive to his name, but might ignore you sometimes.. He has started learning some voice commands such as sit, wait and come. He knows how to wait before his food. He is a fast learner, although sometimes unfocused due to his high energy level. His training will be a work on progress!

Zilla can be excited on leash when he sees other dogs – he will bark, whine and pull to go see them so he will need work on this. He has not been tested with dogs at AARCS yet, but he came from a property with other dogs so with proper introductions he will probably be okay. In his previous home he was noted to be fearful with young kids, so a home without them would be best for now.

Zilla is a sweet loving dog, looking for his forever home!
