"ZEUS" is an owner turn in and he's in the Mercer County Shelter in Princeton WV. Zeus is not on their petfinder site yet! Mercer is a kill shelter and they are overflowing with dogs right now. All that is known about him right now is that he is a big boy, 18 mos old and an owner turn in as the owner decided he wanted a rottie instead of a gsd! The shelter phone number is 304 425 2838

Here is a link to the shelter's petfinder site: MERCER COUNTY SHELTER PETFINDER SITE

As always, there is low cost boarding available close by and there seems to be more transports coming near that area heading north most weekends. If I can be of help for anyone interested in this big boy please pm me.

I called the shelter and talked with Lisa who says Zeus is a wonderful dog. He's housebroken, loves kids, cats a bit iffy, and he's been around with other dogs. No mention from the owner of him having had any vaccinations! I'm going ahead and having him given a parvo/combo vaccination and nasal bordatella just to be safe since it doens't sound like he's been vaccinated...

Silverwolf:

Welcome to the Board. Where do you live? Are you working with any GSD or other rescue groups? Are you approved for adoption by a GSD or other rescue group?

Re: PRINCETON WV-18 MOS BIG PRETTY BOY "ZEUS"

Well I just lost my 12 year old silver/sable GSD about a week ago. Still beating myself up over having the vet come to our home for euthanasia. But he is better off. I was told about this board from Lea from the Virginia GSD Rescue. I am looking for another little buddy. Every rescue I talk with has to make home visits. I seem to be a geographical oddity. I am in Gallipolis Ferry, WV. Its very near Point Pleasant but only an hour or so from Huntington, Charleston or Parkersburg. So I have been looking on Pet Finder . com for GSD's. We saved a silver/sable GSD/husky two years ago from a shelter near Lexington, KY. Thats about all that I know to tell. If anyone has questions feel free to email me:
