Zeus was brought in with another dog (Milo, A104313) found here in Burbank. We tried to reach out to the owner on his collar tag but unfortunately they did not contact us to reclaim them. Zeus was a little scared at first but quickly warmed up to our staff after realizing he is safe and being cared for. Zeus is a Belgian Malinois, an extremely intelligent working breed. They are commonly used as service dogs, K9 dogs or used on farms for specific jobs because of how high energy and super smart they are. These dogs need LOTS of exercise daily and need to be mentally stimulated or have a job to do while not around their owner, otherwise they can be destructive and develop behavioral issues if these needs are not met. Zeus is VERY SWEET and attentive to his people. When he is happy and comfortable he acts like a young pup and loves to give and recieve affection. Zeus would not do well in an apartment and needs a large secure yard to run and play in, 6 ft. or higher fencing is a must. Zeus was recently introduced to our Dogs Playing for Life playgroup. We think Zeus may do well with another dog in the household provided that the owners dog takes correction well and isnt a high energy dog, wanting to play with Zeus all the time. Zeus would do better being either the only dog or with a very mellow, passive dog. A meet and greet will be required if you have dogs in the household. We dont think he would do well with cats and kids 12 and up are reccomended.
