Pet Of The Week – Lady & Zeus

What’s better than adopting a dog who will fill your life with love? Adopting TWO dogs, of course!  We’d like to introduce you to two extraordinary pups named Lady and Zeus who are as sweet as pie and bonded for life.

Lady, who is about 7 or 8 years old, and her son Zeus, who is about 5, have been together since Zeus was born, and the love between these two could melt even the hardest of hearts. Before coming to Green Hills Animal Shelter they had a home of their own where they were very loved, but as we so often say life sometimes throws us curves, and through no fault of their own Lady and Zeus’s owner needed to relinquish them to the shelter.

Lady and Zeus were nervous when they first arrived at the shelter but they quickly opened up to staff and volunteers, leaning on each other for comfort and courage as they adjust to their new environment. Both Lady and Zeus are very sweet and friendly, and as we said earlier they are very bonded to each other. They are used to being around children and would make great family dogs. Lady and Zeus are used to being indoor dogs and are already potty trained. They love going on walks and taking leashed walks together is their favorite part of their day at the shelter. Lady and Zeus also know their basic obedience commands, and Zeus absolutely loves toys – especially if they squeak!

If Lady and Zeus could describe their perfect Forever Home, they would tell us that they would like to continue to be indoor dogs with a family who would love and care for them forever, and who would be patient and show them lots of love as they adjust to their new Forever Home. They would love to have a securely fenced yard where they could safely romp and play together, and they would very much like to go on long leashed walks with their family. And of course, Zeus would love to have some squeaky toys of his very own. But most important to them is that they stay together, and the shelter is offering a special reduced adoption fee so that these two special pups can remain together for life.

Lady and Zeus will go to their Forever Home spayed and neutered, dewormed, heartworm tested, and up to date on all vaccinations including rabies. This is a special pair who deserve a special home; could that home be yours?
