Shazam! was left in a carrier on the doorsteps of a small animal shelter, so we don’t know much of his origins beyond that. While in the shelter, he started to display some reactive behaviors, like biting – most likely due to his young age (very playful!) and limited enrichment outlets. Because of his personality, and wanting to make sure the behaviors didn’t get worse/ingrained, they found placement with us at the Sanctuary – where he can have a bigger room to frolick in and burn off all that energy. He’s cute as a button and very friendly, but sometimes those young dudes just need a lot of activity!
He’s adjusted quickly to Sanctuary life, eating fine and playing with staff. He is super energetic, needing lots of play and enrichment. Staff is beginning to start clicker training him. Shazam! is very picky when it comes to treats, so staff has been experimenting which treats are is favorite to use for training. The results are: Chicken!
