Hi everybody my name is Zeus. As you know Zeus is the god of the sky in ancient mythology. In other words, he’s the ‘top dog’ (ha-ha). So, now about this Zeus…me! I’m a 10-year-old gentle giant. When I first met the good people at GR and my amazing foster family, I had severe separation anxiety and hated to be left alone. Now I get this medication that calms me down and I’m so much better. I would still rather be with you but the medication sure helps. I love every person I meet and do a happy-dance whenever I meet anyone new. I am not a fan of other dogs and always pulled on my leash whenever I see a dog. I now have this thing called a ‘gentle leader’ and has it ever helped. I still pull if I see another dog or a squirrel or any critter for that matter but my foster dad says I am improving every day on my walks. I am a big happy goofball and just love being made a fuss over. Loud noises don’t bother me. I’m not a big barker except when I need to go out or it’s dinner time (I have to admit I do love my food). I do need my daily walks to keep my weight down but I’m not overly energetic so a few jaunts a day and some happy dances are all the exercise I need to keep me fit as a fiddle. My foster dad has really helped me with my training for separation anxiety and being grumpy with other dogs and he believes I will only get better over time with consistent training and love. I’m going to sign off now with my favourite Zeus saying: A true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the size of his heart. And I have a very big heart which I’d love to share with you.
