Foster update: Zeus is an adorable dog. He’s goofy, smart, easily trained (with food or praise), likes to be a good boy, potty trained, and good on leash (if he knows you’re the boss). But what is so endearing about Zeus is when he cocks his head to listen to what you are saying to him, his expressive looks and how much he loves to cuddle. He is also compassionate. We had a friend babysit him while we were out of town. She was going through some stuff and told me that whenever she was crying, Zeus would snuggle up to her and lick her tears away. Although he is not a barker, he will alert you if someone is at the door or he hears an unrecognizable sound. Sometimes he will bark in response to our neighbor’s barking dog but will stop when told to. It’s hard for him to contain his excitement when it’s mealtime, when he knows he’s going for a walk or a ride, but he can settle down when you tell him to sit and stay. Zeus’ repertoire is sit, stay, out, off, shake, down and heal. We have taught him to sit for his meals and wait until we say okay for him to start eating, to stay out of the kitchen when told to and don’t go up the stairs until called.

Zeus is our 32nd foster dog and he is one of our favorites, but we’ve had him for a long time because he doesn’t interview well. He gets excited when meeting new people and begins to do a little mouthing (never bites), which people mistake as aggression; but after a short time, he will settle down, lose interest and become the laid-back dog that he is. He would like a home with active people and a good sized, fenced in yard (for his zoomies). Zeus has a jealous side and so he is not good with small children, and he should be the only dog in the home. He does, however, get along with livestock and chickens. If you are looking for a loving and protective companion, Zeus is your boy.

Zeus had a recent vet check up and received his vaccinations. He is neutered.
