Meet Zen!

Miniature American Shepherd
Gloucestershire, South West

Zen is a Blue Tri Merle Miniature American Shepherd female, which is a smaller version of the Australian Shepherd. This super friendly dog is good with adults and children. However, it’s worth noting that Zen is only available for bookings with his family.

Like most dogs, Zen loves fusses, eating her favourite food and lots of cuddles. She is perfect for the “family dog” role and has a very photogenic face. In addition, she is very experienced with flash photography and is a super confident and reliable dog onset.

Zen is very enthusiastic and has a huge repertoire of tricks which she enjoys showing off at any opportunity. Also, she is not phased by the flash, or people moving around and has never reacted to any sounds. She is bombproof for set life.

With notice, Tricks can be refreshed to ensure they are sharp for the day of shooting. Overall, Zen the Tri Merle Miniature American Shepherd is motivated by praise, food and play, and can be taught other behaviours with advanced notice.
