ZEUS has found his furrytail ending!


There's a term amongst rescue groups that you may or may not have heard before...'foster failure'. It sounds bad...to fail at anything isn't ideal, right? Well, we have news for you - sometimes failing is the best thing that can happen!

​Crystal & Michael didn't fail at fostering Zeus...in fact, they did such a darn good job at treating him as one of their own that...well, you can see where this is headed...Surprise, surprise, our goofy little pup squirmed his way into their hearts and decided that he was staying put.

Since losing their Malamute girl, Reiko, just before Zeus' arrival, something was missing - both for them and for Reiko's sister, Kita. We hope that having this little clown around permanently will help the healing process for you all. You can't help but smile looking at that face.

Happy furrytail ending, Zeusy!

'Tis I, Zeus...the King of the Gods, lord of the sky and supreme ruler of heaven and earth. Just jokes? I may be named after him, but one glance at me will reveal that it's not a Greek god who stands before you...just a gangly pup trying to grow into these massive ears and paws.

Like all dogs my age, I'm just learning the rules - testing them often and breaking them completely sometimes too. I'll need a patient person in my life...someone who understands that I'm still learning, someone committed to seeing me through the challenging stage and helping me grow into the best dog that I can be. Most importantly, I'll need someone who accepts that puppies are, by nature, mischievous and are completely unaware of the value of whatever cherished items you accidentally leave out for us to destroy!

The up-side to my tender age is that I'm a blank canvas - you can train me from scratch. I already know 'sit' and 'come', though true to my breed I can tend to ignore this command and should never be allowed off-lead unless in a securely fenced area. I'm housetrained and walk fairly well on-lead, though I'm easily distracted. Oh look! A butterfly!

​My sense of adventure dictates that fencing in my new home should be 6ft high and preferably dig-proof, as I'm keen to pop up next door and introduce myself. You see, strangers are just friends I haven't met yet! The ones I'm really interested to meet under the fence are other doggy buddies. My new home must have another dog, as I adore their company (even small breeds). This will not only help expend some of my endless energy, but may even teach me some nice manners if my new canine companion is calm and mature. Kittycat friends are not an option, due to my naturally high prey drive.

I'm going through a growth spurt that makes me well...rather clumsy and awkward. I'm all legs and ears at the moment, but I'm sure it will even out over time and I could be quite a big boy when fully-grown. I'm oblivious to my size and still do some typically puppylike playful nipping, so any children in my new family will be aged 8+. I'm very active and enjoy daily walks, tug-o-war and fetching and playing with balls. Meeting my exercise requirements will be important - young dogs who aren't given sufficient physical and mental stimulation rarely choose to use that excess energy constructively.

I guess what I'm saying is...sure, puppies are cute, but they're challenging. What you get out of me will be a direct result of what you put in. With sufficient training, stimulation, interaction and love I can become a model citizen.
