Hi my name is Zeus. Don’t let the white look to my muzzle fool you, I am only a 5 yr. old Papillion mix. I came all the way from a shelter in Kentucky, looking for my forever family. I don’t remember much about my life in Kentucky or how I became blind in my left eye but it has not slowed me down any! I have been eating well, put on some weight and have improved the shine in my coat! I can be shy at first but once I get to know you, I will be your constant companion, just ask my foster mom! When I get to meet new friends it is easier for me to relax if everything is presented to my right side. I like to play with dogs that are my size, about 15 lbs, especially the ladies, (I compete too much over territory marking with the guys)! It would be nice to join a family who has a young lady dog to help keep me company when my owners have to leave the house for a while or top dog would be cool too. I walk pretty good on a leash with a harness, still getting the hang of how to play fetch or what to do with toys, and some basic obedience manner (my foster mom is big on having me sit to get a treat). I am doing well with going outside to use the “rest room”, I am not a big crate fan, (I prefer to be in an enclosed open area or with you) and I love to run around in the fenced in yard with the other dogs that are here at my foster home. Due to my blindness I am uncomfortable with little kids because they move so quickly so I would like my forever home have children over 10 and greet me on my right so I can see who is coming to visit me.
I will warn you when I hear unknown noises (I am a good watch dog!) and initially when I am left alone or in my crate ( I miss you), so an apartment setting may not be appropriate for me. If you are interested in being my forever family, please submit your online application for me and my foster Mom will be glad to talk with you about what a great dog I am! I'm being fostered in Rochester with a great family, but I really want my own.
