Do you have room for this bonded pair?


Hercules and Zeus
Hercules and Zeus

Meet Zeus and Hercules. This duo came to us as strays. Both are Shih Tzu mixes estimated to be eight to nine years old. Because of their close relationship, they will only be adopted out together.

Zeus, with a grey and white coat, is the smaller of the two at thirteen pounds. Hercules has a cream colored coat and weighs about eighteen and a half pounds. Both dogs walk well on a leash, are friendly and approachable, and seem to have overall nice dispositions. Zeus especially loves squeaky toys.

Zeus and Hercules have settled in nicely in their shared kennel. Both dogs are approaching their senior years and have some mild aches and pains that are often seen in older dogs. However, nothing is slowing them down and both seem to really enjoy the attention they get from passersby, shelter volunteers and staff. For smaller dogs, they are not very vocal, remaining quiet yet interested when people stop to visit.

Can you open your heart and home to this sweet pair of dogs in need of a warm home, comfortable bed, and your TLC? If so, come and visit them at Frederick County Animal Control and see if it’s the perfect match.
