“Baby it sure was cold outside!!” – Thank you to my Utah Foster Family for picking me up & bringing me home to Utah.

My name is Zeus and I was surrendered due to no fault of my own.  I was living outside in rough conditions.  The most amazing Foster Family showed up one day and brought me home.  I finally had a warm bed to lay my sweet head.  Now that I’ve had a chance to rest a bit,  I am ready to find my forever family!

I have been described as “such a loving, playful pup.”  I live to play fetch, romp around the backyard and play tug-of-war with other Danes!  I can be shy with new people but once I warm up to them, I am super friendly.

I have also shown my Foster Family just how smart I am!   I am housebroken, do well in a crate when left alone and I know words like “sit” “down” “come” “stay” “off”.   I LOVE LOVE LOVE to show off my toys to you.  As soon as you come in the door,  I will grab one of my toys and prancy proudly around the house with a toy.  Yes, I am THAT adorably cute!

I am currently living with 7 and 11 year old little humans and I really enjoy being around them!  I don’t jump on them and I know to be patient and gentle. I have been living with a bunch of Great Danes in my foster home and have enjoyed having pals.  I have not been around cats.

I have also worked on walking on a leash for the first time and my Foster Family says I am a real good boy and fast learner!  Phew!  I’m trying hard to become a fancy Dane of the  ‘burbs’ with my new leash walkin’ skills.
