Today, for Dog Days, we're featuring the very handsome, very sweet Zeus!

Zeus is a mixed breed, about 4 years old and has been at the SPCA of SW Michigan since December of 2020. That's 5 long months without a forever home. Let's see if we can change that today.

He's described as playful, active, and very kind towards people. He loves treats and will do pretty much anything for them. Like, posing for this picture shared on the SPCA of SW Michigan's Facebook page.

As the post details, Zeus, unfortunately, bears some physical scars from his past which explain why he does not do well around other animals. That includes dogs and cats. As well, the SPCA of SW Michigan isn't sure how he would do around smaller children. However, if your kids are old enough to understand and respect boundaries and personal space, Zeus should do fine! Of course, you can always stop by and meet Zeus to see if he's the right addition to your family.

Zeus is neutered and up to date on his vaccines. All he needs now is his forever home!
