ZEUS JR'S Story
ZEUS JR with this unique identification number: (SRC#1800)came into our custody and care from a local shelter where he was about to be euthanized. Now vetted this dog will be prepared for adoption by a foster family who has gone thru our approval process . He is a great dog but not one that would be recommended for a family with small children. This is a very active dog with an alpha personality. He has joined the pack at his current foster home and he has no problem joining in with the vocalizing and the activities but he absolutely will not back down from any challenge given from a canine in this pack. He definitely will want to assume the alpha position in his new home so if you already have a family companion with an alpha personality this may not be the dog for you. He would do best with a female or another male who is not an alpha if you already have another family dog let him meet them first to assure that both dogs get along well. They could be great friends or maybe not which would be a difficult situation so let's find out first. If Zeus is going to be your only baby that would be fantastic! Zeus Jr. far prefers the company of humans and wants to be included in all the activities of his family unit so he will want to be an integral unit of his family or he will be most unhappy. He wants to join in all the activities and then he is a very happy camper! Evaluation remains underway yet it appears that this dog is already housebroken and should be a great addition to an active family who will allow him to become a central member of the family unit.
Zeus has just been groomed. Like we said he is high energy and doesn't get along well with most other dogs which might make you think he is aggressive however this boy was actually afraid of the groomer's cat! The Schnauzer in him makes him vocal so he likes to bark but his favorite pass-time is to take walks. He is completely vetted now and evaluated so this comical boy is ready for a forever home.
Socialization and/or some training would be a great idea for Zeus Jr. to help him fit best into his new family. He should be a great addition this way! He is the size of a Standard Schnauzer rather than a Mini so if you are looking for a medium size dog then. this boy may be perfect.
When ready for adoption this dog will be heart-worm tested (negative), de-wormed, vaccinations brought up to date, spayed/neutered if not done already, micro-chipped, examined fully by a vet and any necessary medical issues found by this vet will have been addressed. It is anticipated that this dog will be released for adoption by the same date as the completion of the Evaluation. The date of release is left to the discretion of the SRC Core Team.

When ready for adoption this canine will also have been evaluated for two weeks by loving SRC foster parents who will be able to give the adoptive parents information as to their opinion about the demeanor of the adoptive parent's new family companion prior to the finalizing of this adoption. SRC volunteers strive to do all of this for the well-being of their rescued canine and for a successful. It is our worthy mission to assure that each dog goes to a loving and stable home whose family members will treat each rescued dog that SRC helps as a beloved member of their immediate family.
