Featured Pet: Zeus


Zeus isn’t quite as powerful a force as his name suggests…in fact, he’s pretty much just a big baby! He loves to snuggle up with a warm human and is a huge bed hog, taking up all the room he can with his 80 pound body. This sweet boy was adopted by his mom and dad from a local pound and became their entire world. Though they still love him dearly, they can’t seem to help him understand that his baby brother isn’t the enemy! As it turns out, Zeus is really very scared of babies and little kids. We know that his mom and dad would love to keep him, but they also want to have a family and don’t think it’s fair to keep scaring Zeus for the next 10+ years with a bunch of little babies. So, they came to us to help them find a home for their beloved buddy and we are happy to help!

This 5-year-old pit mix needs to be the only kid in his forever home. Though he doesn’t despise dogs and cats like he does babies, he doesn’t really like them either and truly just needs to be the center of attention in a forever home that will spoil him rotten! Zeus does best when he has a routine so that he knows what to expect. Though he is a very mellow guy, he will require some daily exercise to keep him in shape and get his energy out. He likes to take walks and is well-behaved on the leash. He also enjoys playing and in typical pit bull fashion, loves destroying any toy he can get his paws on!

Though he loves humans, Zeus has a bit of anxiety in new situations. He will turn to his humans for comfort and does best when in a comfortable, familiar environment with someone he knows and love. He is friendly meeting new people and enjoys getting attention from everyone he meets, but truly bonds with his people. He listens well and knows a few fun tricks like paw, heel, sit, and lay down. He is a very smart dude who loves to learn and is eager to please his owners.

Overall, Zeus is an amazing pet with a wonderful, goofy personality and so much love to give. If you’re worried about adopting a dog that needs to be the only pet – don’t! This guy has so much love and is so snuggly and warm, you won’t even miss having another dog or cat around.
