About Zeus

Adoption Fee: $450
Rottweiler / German Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Zeus is a 3yr old neutered male rottweiler/German shepherd mix who is also microchipped. He is up-to-date on all vaccines and his last vet appointment was in November 2021. He is 101lbs. When on his hind legs he is about 5'8'. He is a very lovable, affectionate, loyal dog to a fault. He does not realize his size and will sit on you on the couch. Even the kids. He likes to wrestle to play but again he's trying big to do this with the kids in turn hurting the kids by jumping on them or pawing at them. He has playfully grabbed at them with his mouth but not bite down. He thinks our kitten is food not friend. We've taken the last 2 months to introduce him to her. And he has attacked myself while I held her to introduce her slowly to him. I have not had the chance to try other dogs. We got him in September as a rescue. He was doing great and mid December his behavior started to decline. He cries when he thinks he's left alone. He started to tear things apart as in stuffed animals. And chewing on the kids shoes if they left them out. He also opened Christmas presents that we had to quickly rewrap. My husband was in a very bad accident Dec 30,2021. He was finally discharged from the trauma center. Due to his injuries Zeus can not even be around him. We had every intention of starting Zeus in behavior classes after the 1st of the year however with the accident my husband is out of work for atleast a year and I am currently his caretaker. We have him locked in our son's bedroom for the last week. I've tried 3 times to bring him downstairs to see my husband to get him to be calm and not hyper and not jump and he won't. If he jumps on my husband he will permanently paralyze him. We love Zeus so much. Unfortunately due to this tragedy we just can't properly care for him the way he deserves. He needs someone that is currently able to spend a LOT of time with him. Who likes to run preferably. He goes on 4-6 walks a day about a mile each. Those don't even tire him out. He is VERY playful and knows some commands. My husband had just taught him a couple tricks as well. He's easily taught and eager to please. I just don't have the time to be honest with caring for our 4 children and my now disabled husband.
