Looking for forever home; Kamloops SPCA pet of the week

November 04, 2018 - 4:00 PM

KAMLOOPS - This dog first came to the B.C. SPCA because his guardians were moving and couldn't take him with them.

Zeus was adopted but recently returned after his owner passed away. 

Zeus is a playful, active, friendly and takative dog, the Kamloops SPCA says in a media release. He also has good obedience.

This dog is used to being indoors and outdoors and is crate trained. He enjoys car rides, playing fetch and going on adventures.

Zeus gets along well with other dogs, though he can bark loudly when meeting them.

When it comes to people Zeus can be a bit timid but is fairly friendly and overall a social creature. Though he needs to be introduced to people and new situations slowly, and a more quiet environment and gentle handling. He would do best in a home without young children.

Zeus has some significant medical issues which will require long-term commitment and dedication on the part of his guardian to ensure his well being. He has Megaesophagus which is a condition that doesn't allow him to swallow things like normal and he has to do things like eating sitting up in a chair, which he is capable of. Potential adopters must show knowledge of the condition and be prepared for all it entails.

Zeus is looking for that special someone who can spend lots of time with him and give him his chance at a happy ending. 

For more information about Zeus contact the staff at the Kamloops SPCA. His animal ID number is 449367.

Visit the shelter's webpage for more information such as location, adoption fees and hours of operation.
