Flat-coated Retriever, Mix
An adotable dog in Thompson, CT
Zach is just a big love! He is a 77 lb, 5 year old Newf/Flat coat mix. His owner moved into an assisted care facility and could no longer care for him.
Zach is extremely sweet, loveable and just loves to snuggle. He is great with other dogs, fantastic on a leash and even knows sit, stay and come. We have not had him around cats but not much bothers him so we don't foresee an issue. He currently lives in the city and enjoys the perks of city life but would be a great country dog too. He is a really adaptable guy. He enjoys going for walks and playing but is happy to lay on the floor and relax also. Zach will make someone a really fantastic family dog. Please email Colleen@bigfluffydogs.com to adopt this boy.

Our main website, www.bigfluffydogs.com has more information about us and the rescue process.
All known information about an individual dog is provided in it's listing. We do our best to provide accurate information, but adopters must understand that each home is different and the dog may behave differently in a new home. Dogs are creatures of their environment and you help make the dog what it will be.
Homes considering adopting a puppy must be prepared for:
1.) Flexible schedules for potty training. Puppies can only "hold it" for one hour per month of age (ex. a 4 month old puppy can only go 4 hours without a potty break).
2.) Crate training until the puppy is at least one year old, to prevent chewing on inappropriate things when you can't supervise.
3.) Socialization: The more positive and varying experiences as a puppy the better, both in and out of your home.
4.) Puppy behavior and life stages are equivalent to a human toddler. It takes at least a full year to have a calmer, well adjusted dog. Patience is required and when your dog's behavior is a positive experience for you and those around you, your patience will be rewarded tenfold, for years to come.
Please do not consider adopting a puppy if you have not thoroughly thought through the pros and cons of having one. So many people end up returning them after 3-5 months because they didn't realize the amount of work involved in raising a puppy.
Patience, appropriate toys, socialization, and obedience training are all musts. All are time consuming, and can be expensive.
All Dogs Require:Supervision with children and obedience training.
Adopters that want to have good dogs must be prepared to put the time and effort into training a dog. Any dog requires work and effort, but a well trained, well socialized dog is more than worth the effort put in to get them there.
