The handsome Zeus came to us as a stray over 12 months ago.. and for some inexplicable reason has had very little interest. Unlike his mythical namesake, when he first came to us, Zeus was very nervous and struggled with the noisy kennel environment. Initially he bonded with a limited number of people, and was wary of strangers.. but over time as his confidence has grown, he has become a firm favourite with staff and especially the volunteer dog walkers.
Zeus’s character has really begun to shine through, he loves his time out of the kennels, either on his walks or playing football in the compound. He is partial to a good belly rub and gives the most incredible hugs.. he’s very perceptive and knows just when to give you a special Zeus style hug to cheer you up. He absolutely loves his toys and anybody considering taking Zeus home must be willing to accommodate his fluffy purple octopus.. his most loved toy.. his squeaky severed ankle is optional! Zeus is also a cocktail sausage aficionado and will do anything for one of his favourite treats.
Zeus does have some specific needs.. he will need an experienced owner, ideally someone with breed specific experience who will have the time and patience to continue with his ongoing training and socialisation as Zeus can be quite vocal when around other dogs. He will need a pet free home and we would advise smaller humans be aged 16+.
Zeus has been diagnosed with hip dysplasia while with us, this doesn’t hinder in the least his ability to enjoy life to the full and is managed by medication, any concerns can be discussed in full.
Zeus can be a little shy with strangers, so it may take more than one visit for him to completely relax with you and share his fun, goofy character.. you may even get a special Zeusy hug. This handsome fluffball has waited far too long for his special someone, if you are interested in giving a home to a loving, loyal companion, please complete an online application form.. thank you 🐾🐾
