Zac is the name, finding a family is my game. I'm a young guy, only about a year old. My foster mom is still figuring out my personality, but so far, what stands out is how friendly and happy-go-lucky I am. One thing is for sure — this scruffy coat, little pink nose and lopsided ears all add up to one cute pup!
