24 Dogs Of Christmas Campaign: Could you give husky Zeus a forever home in Harrogate?
Zeus is one of 24 very special rescue dogs in search of a new home - not just for Christmas, but for life.
The Harrogate Advertiser has teamed up with Good Life Dog Rescue for the 24 Dogs of Christmas campaign, which aims to match each of the dogs with loving new owners and to highlight the work of this small Leeds charity.
Today, with the support of the Natural Treat Company , we are sharing the story of Zeus who is in need of a new family.
Zeus has come into our care as a very neglected stray dog.
He has a balding coat and is complete skin and bone.
This as always is disguised due to a fluffy coat. Since his arrival at the stray kennels Zeus has been given treatments and extra food.
He is now starting to put on weight, however this will take time.
Despite his neglect this four year old Husky is gorgeous.
He is fun loving and very friendly and adores having a fuss.
Zeus has been health checked by our vet and started his vaccines and will be castrated once he has gained weight.
Zeus loves his walks and absolutely loves the outdoors and the woodlands.
He is full of beans and now has a new lease of life with stimulation and human interactions.
Zeus has shown no issues with other dogs on his walks although due to his past life of serious neglect we would like to find him a home as the apple of his owners eye with no added pressures.
He is truly beautiful and deserving of a happy life with a human that is able to love and have compassion towards animals.
What is Good Life Dog Rescue?
Good Life Dog Rescue is a small charity based here in Leeds that cares about the welfare of stray dogs in the UK.
Its founder, Victoria Bastow, is passionate about helping animals who often face an uncertain future.
For more than eight years now, she has been dedicated to helping stray and abandoned dogs in Yorkshire.
The charity flies a flag high for the Staffies and cross Staffies who are often the last to find a rescue place.
It receives no immediate funding and survives on donations and fundraising, with no paid staff and only its committed volunteers to champion the stray dogs it rescues.
Victoria herself has a full-time job so that she can partly fund the huge kennelling and veterinary bills incurred.
Since the charity does not have its own kennels, all the dogs in its care are looked after at kennels in South Yorkshire.
The kennels are very much a temporary home and Good Life aims to find each of the dogs a new start with loving owners as soon as possible.
How to adopt Zeus
Many UK stray kennels, rescues and rehoming centres are full of lovable, active and healthy adoptable dogs just waiting for someone to love them and offer them a home.
It is important the right dog is matched with the right person or family.
In order to find the right dog for its prospective owners, Good Life will need to match their lifestyle with the dog.
All the dogs being cared for by the charity are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. Home checks are required and vet references if possible.
