Meet Zeus (#3012). Zeus was in a high-kill shelter in Texas where he was saved from next-day euthanasia by a very big-hearted and caring volunteer. Zeus flew to his GBR foster home in Portland on March 21.
Zeus is a Labrador Retriever-mix but has a golden heart. At 43.7 pounds, he is extremely skinny; he’s working on a target weight of 55 pounds. Zeus arrived full of worms, including heartworms.
He is soon to begin a very lengthy treatment for heartworm, and will also undergo surgery to remove a large mass that formed due to a testicle that never dropped.
Zeus is a sweet dog, good with people and other dogs. He’s already looking happier and soon will be much healthier.
Zeus is being fostered in the Portland/Happy Valley area.
