Reston Pet of the Week: Zeus

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Zeus, a 2 1/2-year-old border collie/shepherd mix.

Here is what Zeus’ people, Susanne and John, had to say about him:

We rescued Zeus when he was eight weeks old from Lost Dog and Cat Rescue. He was the quietest pup in the litter the night we rescued him, but we soon learned to find out that he has more energy than a couple of kids combined.  

Zeus enjoys many things, including but not limited to: scouring the house for any paper product he can find (tissues, TP, newspapers, napkins, it doesn’t matter, they are all tasty!), getting a new bone on Fridays for the weekend, sunbathing on the deck, playing pickle in the middle, visiting friends with fenced in yards and going to doggie day care.

Zeus also enjoys showing off his repertoire of tricks to family members and friends including high-fiving, praying and playing dead. We are sure glad that he is our “fur-child!”
