After being in shelter for way too many days Zeus is eagerly awaiting the perfect person or family to take him home.
He is an extra large hunk of goofiness and love. Zeus gets very excited about being let out into the yard and will zoom about, barely missing your legs in the process. He loves to throw a ball around, and roll in the grass! Zeus gets very excited to see people and will jump up to play so an adopter would need to be able to handle his might. He loves his walks, and walks very well on a harness.
Zeus shows a lot of interest in other dogs, and would likely do well with them if properly introduced. He has lived with cats, but it did not go well, so dog people are Zeus’ people.
A GREAT home for Zeus would include:
– A large yard space for his zoomies.
– Plenty of cuddles, possibly a lap to snuggle in.
– A strong human to handle his jumping.
Cautions about Zeus:
– Will need some training (for recall and jumpiness).
– Could easily knock people over (even though he wouldn’t mean to).
– Does not do well with cats or small animals.
Zeus is excited to meet you, and would love to sit on your feet, look up into your eyes with his tongue flopping out to the side, and make you fall in love with him.
If you have a large space (in your home and your heart) for Zeus, follow the instruction below to set up a meet.
Submit an online application adopt.spca.bc.ca and staff will contact the first suitable adopter to set-up a visit! Kindly note that due to the high number of applications and the availability of walk-in adoptions an online applicant would have to be available to come in for a meet within 24 hrs.
