Zippy (aka Riptide) is the name and action is his game! He's a one-year-old, 27-lb cattle dog mix currently being fostered in Bradenton, FL. He is also VERY active and while friendly and playful with other dogs, he can be pesky with wanting to play. If you have an active, playful dog, he will fit right in! Zippy loves toys, balls, mud, water, and dirt! Activity is the key here. This dog is very smart and learns fast. He will be starting manners class, which would need to be continued, and he needs additional training with his leash skills. He would excel at agility, disc, fly ball, scent work, lure coursing, dock diving, or as a running partner or active hiking partner. He is house- and crate-trained (although he doesn’t care for being crated). Zippy is up-to-date on shots, heartworm free, micro-chipped and recently neutered. He will need a home with a fenced-in yard and no small children but only because he is still an excitable, jumpy pup.
