Zeus's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Zeus's Story...
Zeus is a 1 year Italian Mastiff that was rescued from a high kill shelter. Zeus came to PAL very underweight, only weighing just over 50 lbs, with heartworms, lyme disease and demodex mange. He is on the road to recovery now and is looking for a forever home!!


He now weights 99.8 and loves to eat and lay in your lap and give you kisses. Zeus will need to be in home without cats as he likes to chase them if they run. He loves children however, we are not placing him in a home with children under the age of 10, as he can play rough.


This breed is a very loyal breed to their family members and are very strong. We are recommending a home that has had previous experience with Mastiffs and will be dedicated to him. His foster mom tells us that he is like a teenager in a dog’s body. He is goofy and loves to play. Be prepared for loud snoring, lots of drool and never-ending devotion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zeus, a Stafford Mastiff/Mastiff dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mastiff/Mastiff for sale in Stafford, or seeking a Mastiff/Mastiff dog from a breeder in Stafford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Stafford already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Stafford breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Mastiff/Mastiff breeders who help with Mastiff/Mastiff rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Stafford paves the way for another one to be saved.
