Zen, a Tru X Ryker puppy, was born June 7, 2007. As a puppy, he was CERF and BAER tested normal. Both of his parents are DNA CEA/CH normal.  He is an amazing dog, with the sweetest temperament.  He is a social butterfly with all people that he meets, and he is very friendly with other dogs.

In the house , Zen has a wonderful off switch, and when its time to play, he is all in! He loves water, has a great tug, and loves his toys.

Zen has found his forever home with a wonderful couple Jack and Dianna, and his new brother, Rusty, in NC.

*Jan 20/13- The only dog to qualify in his class, Zen won first place in his first Open Standard run. Well done Jack and Zen!

* Aug 20/11-After 3 days of agility in Greensboro, NC, Zen came home with his Novice FAST title and two legs of his Open FAST. Great job boys!.

 * March 17/10- Zen's new dad, Jack, reports that Zen is doing terrific. He has taken him back to basics in agility, and Zen doesn't mind. He is jumping 20", doing 3 jumps in a 360 degree with a rear cross, and 2 jumps in a 180 with no prompting, He is doing great with his contacts. We already knew that Zen was fearless with heights (to a fault), so his low teeter is coming along great. And he is learning 2x2 weaves. Oh..and on a big hike in the forest, Zen tried his best to catch some fresh venison. Never a dull moment!
