Zorro is a sweet young boy who came to APA! in mid-November very uncertain about being around these humans he'd never known. Is it safe to be around these people, he wondered? Well, he let a staff member sit next to him and talk for a bit, then let him gently pet his head and neck.

Zorro is gaining confidence and learning to trust people every day in his foster home and making good progress. His absolute favorite thing in the world is his doggy friends. He prances and dances around the yard to get their attention for his favorite activity - chase!

Zorro is house trained and does really well when left alone. Due to his anxiety, he would ideally do best in a home with other dogs that is lower traffic. Come meet him, he would love a human who can be patient while he warms up.
