Zwarte was a stray in a small town in Texas. This poor dog was covered in cigarette burns. It is clear that he had been badly mistreated and abused. As a result Zwarte is leary of humans. He is getting better the more we have slow and gentle interactions with him and he is not nearly as scared as he was originally, just a little wary. His roommate Arctica is Miss Personality so she is really helping Zwarte learn to trust and have fun. Zwarte is doing really well with his leash training and he is quite the gentleman during a car ride. We are not sure what breed he is other than he appears to be primarily Lab but he has the most amazing ice blue eyes we have ever seen. He frequently sports a one ear up/one ear down look that is not only dashing but very cute. Zwarte will be so grateful to have a safe and loving home of his own. He deserves to know that nobody will ever hurt him again.
