Meet Zeus. Zeus came to us from the city shelter a few weeks ago and has done fabulously in his foster home. He’s approx 2-3 yrs old and 75lbs. He’s completely up to date on vaccines and neutered.Zeus is a big baby. He is smooshie and doesn’t realize his size. He loves short play times and loves to sleep. His favorite thing is to lay on top of you when you are sitting on the couch or a recliner. He loves to eat. He’s great walking on the leash and can go a mile or two. He doesn’t like water or the cold. He loves warm blankets and treats.
He goes in his crate to sleep if the door is open or will go in for a treat. He cries/barks when you lock him in during the day, but stops after a few minutes. He really just wants to be near you, so hopefully his new family won’t crate him at night.
He doesn’t realize his size and wants to sniff every cupboard that opens and the fridge when you are getting a drink. He’s pretty gentle taking treats and love to bounce his big self after a ball. He likes car rides, but needs to be buckled because he will want to be on top of you.
He hasn’t had any accidents on the house but I try not don’t give him the opportunity to.
He plays great with his foster sister Ruby and hasn’t bothered with the caged ferret either. No food aggression and he has learned to sit and wait when I feed the ferret. We are working on stay. He lets you feel his feet, wipe his paws and even his butt, and let’s me check his teeth. It’s kind of like having a 2 year old around and he is full of love. He paws at you and wants to jump but you tell him once to get down and he does.
Hollering isn’t necessary- I hope no one hollers at him because he doesn’t get it. I just move him out of the way because he is always next to my knees.
He’s an amazing lovable big baby of a dog. And to be honest the sores on his elbows and his feet and under his chin are healing great but it makes me so angry that he has them because I know he wasn’t treated with the love he and every animal deserves.
