Zuko was surrendered to an animal shelter extremely emaciated, dehydrated, and calcium deficient. We knew we had to help him! But the shelter informed us that he is "aggressive" and will try to bite or tail whip people. We took extra precautions and prepared for Zuko's arrival. 

Zuko is defensive of his space and prefers to spend his days alone basking in the heat. We gave him a stuffed alligator for companionship which he cuddles every night. We hope with time, Zuko will become more comfortable around people. 

Zuko is 15 years old and ready for a permanent retirement home! Blood work indicates Zuko is in good health. Please let us know if you're interested in adopting. Or consider sponsoring Zuko to help with costs of fresh food.
