Meet Zeus

Meet Zeus. Zeus has a heartbreaking story. He came to us after his owners gave him to a local animal control department. He had spent 10+ years outside 365 days a year, tied up. He was emaciated and covered in feces and urine. We could tell that he wasn't used to a kind touch because he winced when anyone reached to pet his head.

After a belly full of food, a warm bed and some attention, it was as though he began to understand that things were going to be different. Zeus began to seek out attention, putting his head on a lap for a pat. After two days, we got our first tail wag and even some barking to go for a walk!

We weren't optimistic about his vet visit but to our surprise, he received a relatively clean bill of health and is only in need of pain meds for his arthritis and medication for hyperthyroidsm.
