Zephyr is an absolutely gorgeous dog who will be rehomed as an only dog. As some of you would know he has been at death’s door and returned.

He has diabetes from his Cushings which was caused by an adrenal tumour. The adrenal tumour has been surgically removed, so he no longer has Cushings but he will have diabetes for the remainder of his life.

His new family will understand that his dietary intake will need to be strictly controlled and he will need daily injections.

Zephyr is a delight to have around the house. He is very intelligent, gentle and loving and loves to bury his head into you for a snuggle. He loves to lie around close to you during the day but stays in his bed all night.

Zephyr has a great personality and a very expressive face. He has the capacity to let you know what he wants and communicates by sitting in front of you with a quizzical face, making talking sounds. He would flourish in a gentle household where he can have lots of company and affection. He does have some separation anxiety, will bond intensely, and you will want a dog who will make you his whole world.

Zephyr is an absolute sweetheart and a delightful companion. Whoever adopts this wonderful boy will be lucky indeed. They themselves will be special people for responding to this boy’s extra needs.

We would prefer to rehome him in the Melbourne area.
