A volunteer writes: Puppy Zeus is so bouncy and affectionate he won my heart and made me laugh all at the same time. He has that joyous puppy, I love the world and the world loves me attitude, and you can’t help but being swept away by his enthusiasm for everything. He loves to give stand up hugs and kisses, greets everyone we pass with a jump up hello and does need a little puppy training that some people enjoy a quieter and less enthusiastic hello. Zeus was surrendered to our care due to ‘allergies’, and we’re told he lived with two children and was relaxed and tolerant with them, and plays exuberantly with dogs met outside. He likes balls, chew toys and Nylabones, slept on a dog bed and went for three walks a day, 6AM, 3PM and 9PM. And I love this – he’s housetrained but would have an accident by the door waiting to go out if his owner overslept. At least he tried and that’s so sweet, and darn good for a puppy! He knows the leash means going outside to pee, so he’s best leashed at the door to outside at the very last minute. He’s crate trained but no longer needs it as he’s well behaved when left home alone. Zeus is fun, friendly, playful and loving – everything he should be as a young dog learning the world. Throw in gorgeous, smart (he showed off his sit for a treat), and ready to learn everything you want to teach him with positive reinforcement training. If you’re active and love to laugh and
cuddle, Zeus is hoping you’ll stop by to meet him today.
Zeus is an 8 month old male Rottie mix. His family got him from a breeder 5 months ago. They surrendered him due to allergies. Zeus had his tail docked when he was 3 months old and has since been very clumsy.
Zeus is friendly/outgoing w/ new people. He lived w/ 2 children ages 9-10 years old and was relaxed, playful, and tolerant w/ them. He plays exuberantly with adults and children. He’s relaxed, playful, tolerant, and plays exuberantly with dogs he meets outside. Zeus has never bit any people/animals.
Zeus doesn’t mind storms. He’s friendly w/ new people who approach his home/family. He’s friendly while someone bathes or brushes him. He doesn’t mind when someone moves him off furniture, holds/restrains him, or wakes him up. He doesn’t mind when his owner takes his food/treat/toy, but he growls when other people take his meaty bones.
For a New Family to Know
Zeus’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, excitable, and very high energy. He follows his family everywhere. He likes balls, chew toys, and Nylabones and plays chase. He loves running around in the park and rolling in grass. He lived inside and slept on a dog bed. He ate dry and wet Blue Buffalo food 2x daily. He enjoys milk bones as treats. He went for walks at 6AM, 3PM, and 9PM. He’s housetrained but has accidents by the door if his owner sleeps in. He potties anywhere outside. He will start to pee once his leash is on, so it needs to be clipped on once he’s at the door to outside. He would probably do better with more frequent potty breaks. Zeus was restricted from a family member’s room with a baby gate, which he was respected. He was crate-trained when he was a puppy but doesn’t need to be crated anymore because he’s well-behaved when home alone. He
knows sit and come. He went for brisk walks, runs, and played off leash at the park. On leash, he pulls towards other dogs. Off-leash, he wanders but comes when called.
Zeus had a very loose, wiggly, clumsy body, open mouth, and wagging tail during intake and while we pet him, scanned him (-), collared him, and positioned him for pictures. He jumped up on us often, leaned into us, and sniffed treats in our pockets. He was a little mouthy, so we gave him a stuffed toy, which he rolled around on the floor with, biting at it. When asked to sit, he would jump up a little but sit after a few seconds. He took the treats nicely. He pulled on his leash towards other people but lied next to me while I worked once he had a toy.
Zeus pulls a bit on the leash. He was calm and relaxed during handling and easily engages in play, body is loose and wiggly, mouth open. Zeus took the toy away but had soft body language.
Zeus was surrender to us. According to his previous owner Zeus is friendly and outgoing with new people. He lived with 2 children ages 9-10 years old and was relaxed, playful, and tolerant with them. He plays exuberantly with adults and children. He’s relaxed, playful, tolerant, and plays exuberantly with dogs he meets outside. He doesn’t mind when his owner takes his food, treat, toy, but he growls when other people take his meaty bones. Zeus’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, excitable, and very high energy. He follows his family everywhere. He likes balls, chew toys, Nylons and plays chase”. Because of his owner profile the behavior department feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction.
