My Story

Adoption Pending. You can see more of these beautiful dogs by clicking on Rescue Dogs.

You can see more beautiful dogs by visiting our Adoptable Dogs page.

Zeus, our very own sky and thunder god is ready for a furever home of his own. Now, don't be intimidated by his name or his size, he is actually a big ball of fluff and love who adores his people. Zeus is quite the gentleman and has pyrfect house manners - the highlight of his day is getting petted and brushed (preferable non-stop :), and/or go on his daily stroll around the neighborhood. And don't be fooled by his age, because Zeus still takes his job of protecting his family's property seriously - he is not shy to alert when potential intruders come around, and he is always ready to chase off critters who dare to test his boundaries. At home, Zeus is the pyrfect couch potato and will happily chill by your chair and doze the hours away. All in all, Zeus is a laid back gentleman who is looking for a relatively quiet home for him to enjoy his golden years. He prefers to be the only dog in the household so he can get all the attention and devote all his love for his people. This big boy is the most gentle love bug who has tons of love to give - are you willing to open your heart and your home for this sweet boy?

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.

If you can't foster or adopt at this time, please consider helping our Neediest Cases or making a tax-exempt donation by visiting our Donate page.
