Zeus was surrendered to a Chicago shelter, and we are so grateful to be able to help this sweet boy! Zeus is a great dog - friendly, affectionate, and eager to learn. As is the case with many huskies in shelters, it seems he did not receive a lot of training before being surrendered - but, even worse, he did not receive much care either as Zeus was diagnosed as heartworm positive during our comprehensive vetting upon intake. Beyond his being heartworm positive, Zeus was in deplorable shape for being surrendered, with his ears covered in fly-bites and completely infected inside and out.
Zeus has six months of treatment and recovery from his heartworms ahead of him, and needs all the support he can get! Any and all donations are greatly appreciated, as heartworm treatment is expensive. Zeus will need to be kept quiet and be calmly leash walked for during his treatment - very hard for a husky, but it will be well worth it in the end, when he has the rest of his life to run and play at full health!
