He is a peppy and playful 9-yr old who weighs 15 lbs. and is very well acclimated to home life. On his very first evening here, Kazoo made himself right at home.

First he explored the house then he discovered the toy box and helped himself.

He seemed completely at ease in the new environment, obviously very familiar with the sights, sounds, and smells of a household.

After playing with some toys, he popped through the dog door to explore the back yard then came back in and picked a sofa and dog bed, settling in peacefully for a snooze.

Kazoo walks well on leash, going at a good pace and not letting the leash get too slack or too tight.

He does alerts to passing vehicles, dogs, and squirrels, showing a preference for giving chase and telling them off with some decisive barks before continuing on his way.

He lets himself out to explore the yard and do a little sunbathing on the deck. If the next door dogs start barking, he'll join in the neighborhood gossip but he does not bark excessively and his voice is moderately pitched and not particularly loud.

Kazoo had been labelled "rescue only" at the shelter due to an incident involving a chipmunk victim, another dog, and an intervening 12 year old boy's finger. The family had had him for 5 months but really hadn't wanted him in the first place (they took him in after his owner, their relative, died) so one strike was all it took for them to decide to surrender him.

We have seen absolutely nothing to suggest that the nipping incident was anything other than accidental. He has been sweet, affectionate, totally touchable, and extremely people-oriented. He wants to be near you and on your lap whenever you invite him.

Or just lounging against you is pretty good, too.

If it's not convenient for him to be on your lap or lounging next to you, that's OK. He'll just snuggle in wherever there's an opening.

"Hey, I found a cranny I could squeeze into!"

Lovin' those pats and skritches!

Kazoo is house trained, uses a doggie door, and knows basic obedience commands.

He is food motivated but not possessive of his food bowl, at least not with humans. The folks who surrendered him to the shelter said he was possessive with food and toys around other dogs, but we have not seen this.

He does LOVE toys, particularly stuffed ones and squeaky ones.

It's rather a waste to give him stuffed ones, though, as he totally eviscerates them within minutes.

"But it is so fun!!!"

Sorry the video is sideways. Click to see Kazoo enjoying a little game of tug of war.

He discovered a good vantage point from where he can survey his new kingdom while enjoying a chew toy.

Kazoo is ready to his "Furever" person or family to find him!
