Facts about Zeus

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Shih Tzu Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Zeus is approximately 18 months old and is a male Chihuahua/Shih Tzu X.  He is about 6.5 lbs and is currently unaltered, based on vet recommendations.  Zeus is absolutely the sweetest boy you could ever meet!  He came to my home about 4 months ago when he was found as a stray.  I took him directly to the vet and found that he had a very heavy load of heartworms.  He received all of his vaccinations that day.

When Zeus received his first lumbar injection to kill his heartworms, he reacted VERY badly to the immiticide.  He stopped eating for nearly a week and lost an entire pound.  He became lethargic, had poor gum coloring, and developed a serious cough that required medication.  Based on this reaction, the vet and I decided that we would continue to treat his heartworms with the “slow kill” method.  Therefore, Zeus can NEVER EVER miss even one month of heartworm preventative.

Zeus was not house trained when he arrived at my home, so he has worn a belly band whenever he is inside.  He does go outside to potty, but still lifts his leg inside.  I believe that will change when he is neutered.  He gets along with all of my dogs (11 of them), ranging in size from a Saint Bernard down to another Chihuahua.  He HATES one of my male Pit Bulls.  Not sure why, but he has never liked him. Zeus loves people of all ages, but would do best in a home without small children because of his size.
