You might remember this dog from last year; he found himself in kennels, as a stray dog, in a sorry state. The kennel owner contacted Second Chances and we stepped in to take him to the vet and get him the medical attention he was so desperately in need of. He had sores and cysts on his body, as well as ear infections, and his coat was in a shocking state. The vet spent around 2 hours shaving his coat and treating his infections and sores.
Luckily we had a home that was ready to adopt Zeus – even although he looked more like a lion than a German Shepherd dog!
here is a wee update on Zeus (previously known as Matty!) from his new owners.
Nearly a year on and the transformation in Zeus is almost unbelievable from a poor shaven dog covered in sores, to a healthy, thick shiny coat and not a sore in sight. Zeus is a loving, quiet, contented dog never very far from your heels. He loves walking and car rides, Zeus is most definitely at his happiest lying in the car although cuddles with dad is most definitely a close second!!
He does suffer from colitis and ear infections but after a visit to the vet this is all made better with some TLC and cuddles.
Zeus is an absolute gem of a dog and we thank you all at the rescue for giving us the opportunity to adopt him and give him the loving home he deserves and craves.
Thanks for giving him a great new home – from all at Second Chances
