Breed: Small Male Maltese x
Weight: 8.4 kgs
Snowy Zanzi at home is so quiet, placid and gentle and mostly sleeps during the day. When out of the home Snowy is hyper stimulated by his surroundings and becomes excitable, wanting to walk fast and sniff everything in sight. He has trouble with his dog interactions, perhaps because he hasn’t (like lots of people) mastered dog body language. He can now meet with most dogs successfully but if the other dog fusses, growls or barks Snowy Z is quite reactive. He walks well on lead except when he sees another dog.
He is fantastic with Somali, the foster cat he is in care with. He is very gentle with her and only barks or growls when she gives him a fright – which she sometimes does as she is very playful. He’s been introduced at a distance to chickens, guinea pigs and so on and shown no reaction. Snowy can sit on command and say 'please' with a paw movement (a trick he already knew) but only when he's not distracted by another dog. He doesn't know drop or stay.
Snowy Zanzi loves people above everything else. He always wants to sit with or near you.
He would be a lovely companion for someone who is home a lot.

Please note: we do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25.
It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. Please go to your local pound, or contact your local group. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia Pounds in the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.
