Zeus is hands down the most popular name for a Doberman (thanks, Magnum PI). This 5-year-old guy is looking for a couch to snuggle on. He had been passed around before entering our program, and we noticed he was a little more clingy and whiny than the typical Doberman. He ended up being very uncomfortable from a serious case of constipation due to a bilateral hernia. Zeus had delicate (and expensive) corrective surgery with the specialists at Veterinary Specialty Center, and once he heals up, he will be good as new! The vets also heard a small heart murmur, which is also very common with the breed. But an ultrasound with a cardiologist only showed a little thickening on one valve, so he needs no medication now and can have normal activity. The cardiologist recommended an annual echocardiogram (heart ultrasound) to make sure potential issues aren’t progressing. We are told Zeus previously lived with dogs and kids, but he doesn’t like kitties. His favorite toy is a sandal, which he carries around like a precious baby. His foster mom says he is a delight to have around and a very nice boy. He knows ‘sit’ and likes to catch treats in the air! He’s not a fan of the cone while he recovers from surgery, but he needs it to heal. He is getting his stitches out this week and will be ready for a new home!
