Meet Zeus! This handsome hound was rescued from the streets somewhere in Dallas. He came to us originally for training as he had some issues he needed worked out with learning how to live with humans. Now Zeus has completed his training and is eagerly awaiting someone to take this boy home for love!
Zeus is a BIG guy, weighing in last time at around 125 lbs! We believe him to be a Newfoundland/German Shepherd mix due to his mannerisms and personality! He is a country boy through and through, he loves big outdoor spaces and enjoys the ranch life. This is not a pup who enjoys going to petsmart or meeting a bunch of people out in the world, he's happiest when he's with his people on his land, so it doesn't take much to please this guy! He enjoys meeting new people, and likes to get ear scratches. He likes to patrol the property and make sure everything is safe and sound, by barking at cars should they pass by. He will definitely keep the unwanted critters out as he chases squirrels, cats, and birds!
He loves to play and enjoys a good game of fetch with all of his favorite toys like the jolly teaser ball and kong ball. He does OK at returning, usually you have to ask him, otherwise he will take it all the way to a shady spot and sit happily with it between his feet, waiting for you to call! He is excellent at recall and does well once he bonds with you to follow your lead when given. He really loves his chews too, and is more then content to be in his kennel when your not around, chewing on his bone and cuddling his blanket.
Zeus gets along fine with almost all dogs, he greets well and has only met less then a handful of pups he didn't get along with, usually through no fault of his but rather theirs. He is a BIG guy! He especially loves his female friends but you can find him rough housing with his fellow boys! He does not get along with cats so not having access to them is a good thing, and a home without is best for Zeus. Zeus is a dog that likes peace and quiet, so smaller, loud children are a bad idea, and older children who are calmer and more understanding of dogs and their well being are preferred.
Zeus does well with training and aims to please, and all forms of motivation work for him including toys, treats and affection. He knows basic commands such as sit, shake, settle, stay and he is also crate trained and leash trained.
Zeus is fully vetted meaning he is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and on monthly flea and heartworm prevention. He is also microchipped as well. For more information on how to adopt Zeus, please contact us at KMCRescue@Gmail.com
