Foster update: Everyone who meets Zeus falls in love with him. This special guy is a lovable, huggable dog full of personality and curiosity. His eyes are golden buttons set in the most expressive face. He is a sweet, smart, sensitive, affectionate 65# lap dog who LOVES to cuddle, is a very good boy and can be a bit goofy. At 5 years old, this Pitt-Pointer still has a lot of puppy left in him as he is still playful. Zeus is a mellow guy but gets very excited about walks, food & car rides. He loves his toys, his ball, playing fetch and going for walks. He is an active dog and would make an awesome running partner (he runs really well on leash and doesn’t get in your way). At about 8pm, Zeus is in for the night and doesn't need to get out of bed until about 9am. Zeus will make a very loyal companion.
Zeus is easily trained and looks to his people for guidance. He knows sit, stay, come, heal, shake, be a good boy, leave it and when we go up or down stairs, we have taught him to wait until we call him to follow. Zeus is crate trained and potty trained. We are able to leave him alone in the house, he rides well in a car and knows how to behave in other people’s homes.
Zeus is looking for a home with a big yard that is fully fenced in. He could do well in a home with another dog once properly introduced. We have been taking him to the dog park and although we haven’t let him off leash, he does well with other dogs approaching him. Last time we let go of the leash and he ran for a pack of 10 dogs and played nicely.
This sweet boy was abandoned in a little town in southern Baja then spent a 1 ½ years in a shelter. Before he left Mexico, he was given a full medical assessment by a licensed veterinarian to insure he was in optimum health. Zeus is currently being fostered in Portland.
