After an injury at 5 weeks old, we were unsure of Zaire's recovery or possible long term effects of it. But he is my miracle baby and came out unscathed. After all the extra time, tears, and stress put into him we formed a special bond and I could not let this boy go. And now I could not imagine life without this little pain in the butt! He is a very confident and happy little man, I believe his big strong personality pulled him through everything. He is always talking to us, telling us his thoughts on everything under the sun, and also voicing his opinion when he thinks I am wrong. He is just the absolute biggest character.

Zaire  is very sharp and bright, as smart as a whip, and a very silly kind of quirky. He has loads of stamina and is so much fun to work and play with. He is super goofy and immediately loves anybody he meets. His presence will never be unknown! I am so excited to continue watching him grow and what will come of him as he is turning into quite the handsome dog and I am pleased that I had the chance to have a litter with the beautiful Basie, thank you to Deanne of Wildblue BCs for letting me use him, which resulted in having our handsome Zaire and his sister Paris.

Zaire easily earned his therapy dog certification just after he turned a year old. He has also competed in Rally obedience and received his Novice title in just 3 shows, and we plan to compete with him again this summer for his Advanced title.

Zaire's name (pronounced like dare, with a 'Z') "Rio Zaire" may be a bit redundant, both Rio and Zaire meaning the same thing, which i was not aware of at the time of naming him. Rio meaning river in Spanish and Zaire also meaning river derived from African roots . But we wanted to give him a 'Rio' name. His mama Nikki, though she does not have 'Rio' in her name since I did not name her, is from my 'Rio' line and I wanted to continue that tradition with Zaire!

Below is a video of short compilations of Zaire's photos and videos of him talking to us. From birth to after his injury and recovery (as you can see, his eye corrected itself as he got older) and through to 9 months old. We will update this with videos later on as we get more!
