About Zeus

Introducing Zeus. This is a fun, young dog, ready to find an active home. Zeus loves to play fetch, and knows sit. He is strong and will need a physically capable owner. Zeus does not seem to like other dogs, so he will not be a good dog park candidate, or do well with another pet in the home. Zeus has lived with kids, but because he can be easily over stimulated and become jumpy, a home with adults, or older kids would be best. Zeus appears to be housetrained, and crate trained Zeus is presently not on the adoption room, so if you'd like to share a visit with him, stop by the front desk and ask to see him - he would love to meet you!.Advanced due to size and strength; need of active and patient guardian. Recommended household without children under 12 years old and other animals. Will require daily exercise, walks will not be enough for him. Will do best in quiet area.

Meet Gino. Mister tall, dark and so handsome. While we don't know much about this four-year old's history, it was clear when he came to us that he had a rough start in life. Thankfully, Gino is a very smart boy with a resilient spirit and zest for life....especially when it comes to snuggling. This guy loves love and is happy to meet and hang with just about anyone. If you're they type of person who likes to wind down at the end of the day and chill, Gino is your guy. Yep. He's a 75 pound lap dog. And, if he can't sit on your lap, he's happy to sit on your feet. Gino enjoys walks, playing ball, people watching, sleeping on the couch, bully sticks and tug of war (good luck trying to win---he's one strong boy). With that said, we think Gino would do best in a home without children since he doesn't know his own size or strength. Gino also needs to be in a home without other pets. He came to us with some dog reactivity issues, but has been working through them while in foster care. He's a smart boy and is quickly learning that the world isn't such a scary place after all.Gino knows sit, down, look at me and stay. His foster mom is so impressed by how quickly he learns and adjusts to new environments. While Gino is a big, strong boy, he has a very gentle soul and will flourish with someone who will teach and guide him in a kind, positive manner. Chopped up hot dogs also help. Lastly, we think Gino might have allergies (who doesn't these days?), so regular ear cleanings and Benadryl are part of his current regimen.You can check out Gino's Facebook page if you want to see him in action in his foster home: Gino the Snuggle Bug. You can also email us at foster@anticruelty.org if you're interested in meeting Gino. show less
