Another day, another success story! How about that?! We have been so blessed lately.

Zeus and Sally hit it off and did great at the rescue. They were running around, chasing one another in the field from the get-go. We knew he was the best fit for Sally, since we needed a bigger boy who could hold his own with her.

Kate and Sally went home to prepare for Zeus’ arrival the next week. A couple of members of Team Russell (who were very instrumental in saving Zeus from the shelter and fostering him for awhile) dropped Zeus off at Kate’s house the following weekend. He had everything ready for him – dog bowls, leash, harness, collar, toys-you name it! This four-legged duo played immediately and have already bonded after only two weeks.
Kate and Sally are the perfect family for Zeus, whose name is now Briggs! They both absolutely adore him, and he has learned to walk well on a leash with the guidance of Sally. Zeus also will get to visit his grandparents’ lake house, where he can swim or hang on the boat. His first family may have had to leave him, but that will never happen again.
