Zac is a rescue dog from Tunisia, now living in the UK with his adoptive mom, Sam. In part 3 of Zac’s adventures, we learn that Zac’s dislike of the freezer/garden in the cold of March, keeps him holding his bladder for up to 18 hours! In this funny but touching story of a dog born to the streets of Tunisia, his fear of everything new in his adoptive home in Kent, England, and of his blossoming personality and confidence, we see this wonderful dog evolving to his happier self. But we also see every rescue dog everywhere, doing their best to acclimate to a world of newness and uncertainty, but one filled with love and promise.
