Adoption Monday: Zeus, Black Labrador Retriever Mix, Toronto, ON

Zeus came from a kill shelter. His current foster mom  is truly ill and is looking at weeks of recovery and this is the only reason he needs to be moved from there.

Zeus is a happy, high energy dog. 

He's well suited to someone active who can give him lots of walks and stimulation. He LOVES to fetch and is darn good at it. It's not enough to fully drain him, he does need a walk, but he will fetch for a good long time. He does pull on leash so training with a gentle leader will help or an easy walk harness.

Zeus is a very bright boy who trains and bonds quickly. 

All he wants is to please his people. He knows several commands including sit, down, stay and off. He needs an owner who knows their way around dogs and training. This also comes back to his exercise needs. Zeus is not suited to apartment living.

Zeus is extremely good with people - sometimes he will mouth if allowed but he is gentle to extreme. He is terrific with other dogs off leash and has made great improvements when meeting them on leash as well.

Zeus is a love bug. 

After his walk, a game of fetch or some tug, he's ready to curl up and snuggle. He does enjoy the companionship of the resident senior female in the home and will snuggle up to her when it comes nap time.

ANML-RESQ is a dedicated group of volunteers looking out for the 4-legged creatures we share this world with. Their goal is to save a dog or cat from being euthanized in a shelter, through no fault of their own - just in the wrong place at the wrong time. If they don't have a foster home available they will work with other reputable organizations to find a place.

ANML-RESQ relies solely on donations and fundraisers to spay/neuter, vaccinate and microchip their pets prior to adoption.  They don't even use funds for gas to transport the pets in their program to their new homes!
