Zeebo (Freshfields Animal Rescue, Liverpool)

Please help Zeebo by sharing this page!

Good Boy Zeebo is in the care of Freshfields Animal Sanctuary in Liverpool because his family’s new landlord didn’t allow pets. He grew up with small children and has a loving, placid nature. He’d be happy living with youngsters from age 12. Zeebo is good with other dogs and could live with a compatible dog in his new home.

Lovely Zeebo was gentle towards his previous family’s hamster, and as he has shown no reaction to the cats in Freshfields’ cattery he might be able to live with a compatible cat. If Zeebo is to live with cats, Freshfields would be looking for a home local to the rescue so that he can spend some time getting to know the cats before adoption.

Zeebo has had dermatitis for most of his life and was in a sorry state when he first arrived at the rescue. He was so uncomfortable and miserable that he barely wagged his tail.

But now that he is receiving the treatment that he needs to keep the dermatitis under control he has made fantastic progress and has a new lease of life! He bounds around the exercise field and has started to play with toys.

Freshfields told us: “Zeebo has recently moved into our staff room area and has been the perfect lunchtime pal. He is super clean, non-destructive and very well-behaved. He greets absolutely everyone with a big smile and wagging tail, and he loves cuddles!”

Zeebo will require a hypo-allergenic diet and may need medication on and off for the rest of his life to manage his skin condition. Please do not let this deter you from offering this amazing boy a home, skin conditions are easy to manage once you’ve found the right treatment. Zeebo has undergone surgery for a luxating patella in the past and although this is causing him no issues now, he is showing signs of arthritis so is having joint supplements daily. Zeebo isn’t suitable for an active home as he can only manage short walks.

Zeebo is a lovely, gentle boy and really friendly with everyone. He just wants to place his head on your lap for fuss and cuddles. In the home, he’s ever so well behaved! He’s clean, non-destructive and happy to be left alone for a couple of hours. He also travels well in the car. He’s altogether Very Good!
