Most animals who come to Tri-County Humane Society looking for new homes are happy and healthy. But every now and then, we get one who needs a little extra care, whether it be medical, mental, or both. Such is the case with this pup's story. Zeus arrived in mid-January. The 2-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix was severely underweight and in need of immediate care. He ended up spending about a month at the shelter as staff worked with him to get him to a healthy weight and to socialize him. He quickly captured the hearts of staff members and volunteers alike. After being cleared for adoption, this sweetheart found his home in mid-February. He is thriving there and even has a doggie pal whom he adores.
“I’m so happy he is at his forever home. We love him so much, and I know he loves us. He is over 50 pounds now! And he loves to be silly.”
After Zeus’ bumpy start and tough times, nothing could please us more than to see the term “silly” used to describe him!
