Meet Zeusanna

Add to favourites

Zeusanna is a hot topic here at the West Van SPCA – our staff and volunteers literally cannot get enough of this gentle giant!

I think if we had a “Dog of the Month” here at our branch, Zeusanna would win by a landslide. We have volunteers dropping in JUST to snuggle this girl. Let me tell you why she’s so special.

As I write this, Zeusanna is nudging my arms asking me for attention instead of working at the computer. She puts her big paw on my arm and leans in to give me “the eyes”. And she knows it’s working! It’s almost impossible to believe this girl was found as a stray and never claimed.

Although her past is a mystery, there are quite a few things we do know. We know Zeusanna is a cuddler, she adores people and hasn’t encountered a single volunteer yet that she didn’t like – she’s a people person. Her favourite activity at the shelter is squeezing onto the couch with you as she’s convinced she’s a small dog who can fit in your lap. Zu will gently paw at you if you’ve stopped giving her love before she’s ready! She’s a total mooch for human food as well – snacks beware!

Kangal/Anatolian dogs are excellent guardian breeds with a gentle demeanor and do best with lots of space to roam inside and outside. These breeds are considered working dogs and do best with a good routine, consistency and exercise.

She has proven herself as an excellent climber, even managing to climb 6ft fences! She will need an adopter who can monitor her yard time to make sure she doesn’t sneak off! She gets very excited about things and tends to jump up, so she will need to learn to keep all feet on the floor when meeting new people!

Zuesanna does show interest in other dogs in care, and we are currently seeing how she feels about slow introductions to canine friends. She does show some prey drive with small wildlife and will chase after them, so she is likely not ideal for a home with cats or small animals.

Whoever takes this girl home will truly be winning the doggy-lottery, we can’t wait to see who it is! Fill out an application form online or pop into the shelter to meet her. Our animal viewing hours are 12-3pm Tuesday-Sunday.
