Update: Hi, I'm Zeus! I recently moved in with a new foster family due to the MN lock down. I love to play tug-o-war and fetch with my foster family's rambunctious 3 y/o tiny human. I enjoy playing and wrestling with my big foster pup sister. I love chew toys and peanut butter filled Kongs, I'm working on sharing toys with my foster pup sister. I'm crate and potty trained. My foster mom says I'm a smart boy! I know the "sit" and "lay down" commands. I'm working on the "stay" command, which I'm starting to get fairly good at! I've been doing well with my leash training. I am cat friendly, but sometimes I try to play with them. My ears keep trying to "pop up", which makes my foster mom laugh. I'm a sweet boy, who loves to cuddle and play!
Update: Zeus is a 4 month old German Shepherd mix who has a great temperament and loves everyone he meets, human and canine. He is very smart has learned how to go into his kennel when you tell him “go to bed” and go outside to “potty”. Zeus enjoys riding in the car, going on walks, and playing with other dogs (although he thinks he is a small dog because his foster-siblings are small, but he is really over double their size). His favorite treat is peanut butter flavored anything, and sometimes he makes a mess when he eats by putting the food on the floor and eating it from there. He has also been known to do that with his water.
Zeus is a wonderful, goofy, smart, sweet dog who would do well in a forever home with other dogs and/or kids, and a big yard where he can run and play!
Update: Zeus was hospitalized for 1 week under veterinary treatment and supervision. Luckily, he beat the Parvovirus and is now at his foster home recuperating. He will not be able to go to another home with a puppy and all other resident dogs will need to have a history of vaccinations.
Poor Zeus! He's so young and has had such a sad life! Zeus's 'family' moved and left him behind locked in the cold garage. Days later, someone found him huddled in the corner, cold, hungry, and lonely. Zeus arrived to rescue and it was soon discovered he has the dreaded parvo. He was rushed to the vet and is fighting for his life. PARVO IS DEADLY IF NOT CAUGHT SOON ENOUGH AND TREATED. It is so easily prevented with yearly vaccines. The estimated cost for these life saving measures is $1500. Please keep Zeus in your prayers and donate if you can.
