Gorgeous Zeusy is an active yet sensitive chap who has won the hearts of everyone at Mayhew. He can sometimes become worried around strangers, particularly men, but when introduced properly he makes friends very quickly and is extremely affectionate. He’s super playful, he’s always up for a game with his toys, and he’ll optimistically greet you with a toy in his mouth hoping for a game of fetch! As well as basking in the sun, he also loves to meet other dogs. His playstyle can be a little OTT for some dogs but for those with the energy to match, great fun can be had! Zeusy is an intelligent boy, who wants to please and learns new cues quickly. He will make an extremely rewarding and fun-loving companion for the right owner or family who are willing to put the time and effort into continuing his training and keeping him mentally and physically stimulated.

Other Notes

Zeusy is an athletic and strong dog who is looking for an equally active owner. Someone who is experienced with dogs, having owned large breeds before, is knowledgeable about dog behaviour and has researched his breed type. He's responded so well to training while with us and he is now ready to find someone who has the time to continue this training, building up his self-confidence, and will work with a dog trainer. He’ll need to wear a muzzle on walks as a safety measure in case startled by strangers. Ideally, we’d like to find him a rural or semi-rural home, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, where he can enjoy his walks in quieter surroundings. He could possibly live with a female dog who won’t be intimidated by his boisterous nature, pending successful introductions at Mayhew. He’ll need an all-adult home, without too many visitors and no visiting young children. His potential adopter will need to meet him a couple of times to build up a bond before taking him home. If you have the time to give this loyal and loving boy the home he truly deserves, he’ll be sure to replay your efforts tenfold! Zeusy has been neutered microchipped, vaccinated, is up to date with flea and worm treatment. He has also been health checked and behaviourally assessed.
