Why Zeus? Because this guy is a silly goose of a dog who has no idea how tough he looks on the outside. He'll do anything for a treat and his crazy antics are always good for a laugh. Zeus also has a unique way of bonding with children, to include those with special needs. He was wonderfully therapeutic to an autistic child in foster.
While he really prefers not to interact with other dogs, Zeus walks in a nice, controlled manner on a leash and can sit/focus on command. Zeus will arrive with a FREE TRAINING package to help him continue to practice these good manners when his adopters take the reigns.
Zeus needs to be an only pet and does not thrive in the unpredictable chaos of 'off-leash' life and feels the need to proactively defend himself. Regular leash walks and/or a nice fence yard suit him just fine. He doesn't want to have to worry about chasing off any strange dogs or cats.
This chunky hunk is quite simply a joyful people dog, who will absolutely love his people to bits and absorb all the love they give. Won't you consider springing this big guy out of boarding and into a home? He is so deserving and so ready to be your big lazy couch companion.
See Zeus' videos on YouTube -- isn't he a good lil gentleman?
