Our big, black beauty is ready to find his forever people! If you have an interest in dog training or even want a career in dog training and need that special dog to get you started, this boy would be perfect.
Zakir loves nothing more than training and is happy to do that most of the day! He loves toy based training and games and will encourage you to train with him! He knows so much already and lives to learn more.
Currently working with a trainer, Zakir has absolutely blossomed into a confident boy that has a natural desire to please and follow direction. He has shown that he is an extremely intelligent and willing dog who loves to please his handlers and will get even better in the right home.
In the right hands, he is an absolute dream and very easy to handle, in the wrong hands, well, not so much!
Zakir is a natural guardian and wants to protect his home and his family. He also prefers the company of people he knows and trusts. In saying that, he’s a perfectly friendly dog, he just ignores those that he doesn’t know.
He’s very social with other dogs but doesn’t want another dog at home as his people is all he really cares about. He has shown to be unfazed by cats, dogs and birds with the right person by his side, he will ignore them. We’re not looking for a home with any other animals though.
Put his love of training and intelligence aside, Zakir is also a beautiful, goofy, affectionate boy that loves a good tummy rub and a cuddle. He’s an awesome ‘mans best friend’ and ticks all the boxes when it comes to be your comrade. He will be by your side forever loyal.
Zakir has many German shepherd traits and we feel a family with German shepherd experience would be ideal to continue his development. He needs a confident handler who has experience with large breed dogs as he’s a big boy. Zakir has shown with the correct handler he is the most incredible, loving, playful, friendly and willing dog, but in less experienced hands he becomes nervous and confused.
You should be an adult couple or single male owner only with no kids or pets at home. Be willing and capable of ongoing training and preferably have some interest in doing high level obedience, trick training etc. Zakir will need good daily exercise for a solid hour each day at least plus his daily training / toys / games etc.
