Nearly 300 dogs found homes over the weekend at a mega adoption event in Indianapolis…but nobody even wanted to meet a dog named Zeus. After the adoption event, one of Zeus’ heartbroken advocates wrote:
King Zeus was one of the few that did not get adopted this weekend. He is sweet, gentle, and likes children yet no one looked at him. Maybe it was because of the scars that are all over his face. Maybe it was because he was laying down quietly in his crate. I’m not sure why, but I do know that we will continue to find King Zeus the loving home he desperately wants.
Zeus is being held at the Humane Society for Hamilton County in Noblesville. On Monday morning, the animal welfare agency wrote:
King Zeus was left behind. 299 dogs at Mega found their forever homes, but nobody stopped to look at our Zeus. This sweet and gentle giant will continue to wait patiently for you in his kennel at HSHC.
Information about this dog
The animal shelter describes “King Zeus”
Some dogs make you laugh at their antics. But some dogs tug at your heart because you know they desperately need a loving home. King Zeus came from the streets as a stray, and it was apparent that his life had been rough. He has lots of healed scars on his head, he had pressure sores on both front legs, and his teeth have been worn down. He has been adopted and returned two times because living with other dogs is just too difficult for King Zeus. However, we know that he did well with the children he lived with and that he loves humans more than anything.
The shelter added a heartbreaking statement about Zeus’ apparent lack of hope, “He lays so quietly in his kennel watching people pass by him. He never barks to get attention. It’s as if he has given up hope of finding a forever home.”
