Greetings! My name is Zeus & I'm a sweet senior boy, 8 years old weighing around 60 pounds. My heritage is Shepherd with a dab of Labrador Retriever. I am an active boy, so don't let the grey hairs on my muzzle fool you!
I love going for walks, but more than that, I love chasing squirrels! I am currently in foster with other dogs and children. I am housetrained and not destructive. If you allow me to, I will lay on top of you when watching TV. I love to be as close as humanly (dogly?) possible!
I have been available for adoption since May, without even one inquiry! My foster family says its due to "Black Dog Syndrome". I never heard of that, but apparently people are less apt to adopt a black dog. Then you add to that my age, 8, and then on top of that my name starts with Z, so you have to scroll past sooooo many other great dogs just to find me! Oy vey, can a dog catch a break??
If you're looking for a loving, faithful, funny boy, then STOP LOOKING and fill out an application for me! The buck stops here! Fill out an application right now for A BLACK DOG NAMED ZEUS!
