A Pit Bull was for all intents and purposes the last pooch remaining at an appropriation occasion that saw 299 different mutts find everlastingly families, yet no one halted to take a gander at him. That nobody was keen on the “sweet and delicate monster” left his rescuers confounded and saddened.
King Zeus has been quite a while inhabitant at the Humane Society for Hamilton County in Indiana (HSHC). When he landed in April, it was clear the destitute puppy had persevered through a great deal in the city – he had scars everywhere on his face.But in spite of his unpleasant and rough appearance the 9-year-old Weimaraner/Pit bull blend immediately “caught our hearts” the HSHC composed.
“His soulful eyes and love for pets and cuddles made him a staff favorite. Zeus loves humans of all ages – kiddos included!” But maybe it was because he was laying down quietly in his crate that he was overlooked at the adoption fair. “He lays so quietly in his kennel watching people pass by him,” HSHC wrote. “He never barks to get attention. It’s as if he has given up hope of finding a forever home.”
Maybe he was losing hope because he had been adopted before, but they weren’t good fits as they had other dogs in the home. “Living with other dogs is just too difficult for King Zeus,” HSHC explained on his adoption page. “However, we know that he did well with the children he lived with and that he loves humans more than anything.”
So King Zeus returned to the shelter to patiently wait for someone to recognize how special he is. And thankfully, someone finally did. Austin Smith saw Zeus shortly after the adoption event and took him home. “Today, after months of waiting, King Zeus found his forever home! Thank you to everyone for sharing this post and sending him your thoughts and wishes,” HSHC happily wrote on Facebook.
