About Zeus:

Zeus is a large, male Huntaway X, aged 2 years old.


Hi, I’m Zeus. I’m an almost 2-year-old hunky huntaway border collie cross, living in Taranaki.

Every dog has their thing – mine is plastic bottles.

I’ll have myself a GREAT time – throwing them round, chasing them, then ripping them up – woohoo!

I started out in life as a working dog – brought in for security, to guard a commercial yard.

It really wasn’t a great passion of mine, so my current owner welcomed me into his home, till he can find a wonderful permanent place for me.

I’m a friendly young man around people. The children I live with think I’m great!

I’ll look up at you, with my big soulful eyes, always hoping for some attention and a head scratch.

I’m a BIG boy, with a big heart to match! I just love being close – so close in fact, I’ll sit on your feet.

I love nothing more than taking myself for a swim at the beach or joining my humans on a fun walk out and about.

I’m a very smart boy, doing well with my training. I’ve already learnt sit, down, come, wait and stay.

I’m working on my roll over and my recall, which can be a little selective at times!

I get along GREAT with other doggies but, sadly, the grumpy old pomeranian I live with has an issue with the new kid on the block.

That makes me sad. I really would love it if we were play buddies, while I stay here, but it’s just not to be.

My owner’s hoping to find me a loving active home where I’ll be adored and taken on regular adventures, as I’m still a young boy.

I’m quite a vocal lad. I’ll even have conversations with you and the fire sirens will send me into song.

I’ll also bark, to alert my owners someone new is visiting… but then I’m up for any and all pats on offer.

Sadly, I love chasing cats and chickens a little too much, so I need a feline-free home, without free ranging feathered friends.

My owner wanted me to let you know that I’m neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.

So if you’re looking for an adventurous dude – keen to be part of the fun, that’ll also chill in the sun with you – I could be the man of your dreams!

Please send an email, explaining what type of home you could offer me.
