My Aunt Penny has a nephew Matt. Though we have not met, I decided that since we have the same aunt, we are cousins.
Matt and his family recently rescued this adorable puppy, Zeus. I've not met Zeus either, but I love him so much!
Name: Zeus Meatball Wallace
Age: 6 months
Weight: 45 lbs.
Breed: Mastiff mixed with American Staffordshire Terrier
Adopted: Nebraska Humane Society. He was fostered because he was underweight. We think there was abuse before Nebraska Humane Society because he was very shy around certain men, but he has gained a lot of confidence since then.
Training: We were definitely worried about his past and shyness catching up to him because of his big breed. We wanted him to be well socialized and confident, so we went with positive reinforcement training with a clicker right away. I learned from YouTube. He is very good at sit, lay, shake, kennel, stay and heel and knows the word "no" very well so he stays out of trouble.
Favorites: Staring out the window...
naps in the sun...
naps in the bed, naps in your lap...
playing outside with his 6 year old bestie...
and cuddles with his Momma.
Sarah and I comment all the time about how we lucked out with this man Zeus. He is obviously a handsome boy, but his relaxed temperament, his sometimes playful but very lazy personality, trainability and love for sleep and the fact that he has to be touching or near you at all times fits our team perfectly.
Thank you for sharing Zeus with us, Wallace family! He is amazing!
