Facts about Zeus

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Gray/Blue/Silver/Salt & Pepper
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Zeus was transferred into our shelter from another shelter. This is their description. "He is a total lovebug with people (he believes he’s a lap dog) and has done well with a submissive male hound (play bows and everything!). He is strong willed and prefers to be the boss so he would probably do best in an only dog home or with submissive companions. He has taken part in several large group walks with other dogs without any negative reactions and will turn away to avoid conflict if possible if another dog approaches him in an aggressive manner. He was owner surrendered because he got into a fight with the other intact male at the house over an opossum. He had lived his first 3 years with 2 dogs and had no incidents. Zeus will make a fantastic companion in the right home for him."

About Avery County Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

We are a compassionate shelter. Our job is to help our animals get ready for their "forever homes". We do this by making their stay with us comfortable, and giving them a healthy, clean, and safe temporary home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

You can come to visit or adopt one of our animals from ten a.m. until four p.m. Monday through Saturday and from noon to four p.m. on Sundays.

Our Adoption Process...

The whole process is easy and takes a matter of in-office minutes. While we like for our animals to find homes, we require adopting families to meet in our shelter. That way you can meet your new family member and make sure he/she is the one for you. Then we do the paperwork which takes only a little time. We look forward to meeting you.
