Happy Wet Nose Wednesday! Let's talk animals.

Hundreds of animals are patiently waiting for forever families on the SouthCoast and it is our mission to unite them with perfect homes.

Each week, we give one animal the spotlight. This week, we head to Fall River where a loveable chihuahua hopes to steal your heart.

Meet Zeus. Zeus is a 12-pound, 6-year-old chihuahua currently residing at Forever Paws Animal Shelter in Fall River.

Zeus may look permanently concerned, but he’s truly the happiest little guy in the world.

Zeus loves his squeaky toys, treats, long walks, and sitting on your lap.

He does not love waking up early, so he makes the first cuddle buddy for lazy mornings.

“He’s great on a leash and loves to go for walks and will start happy prancing,” said the shelter. “A shy, nervous nelly at first, he warms up pretty quick if you get down to his level and talk to him in a soft voice and let him come to you.”

Zeus is still working on a few manners, so the shelter recommends no cats and children must be at least ten years old.

“He is super smart and knows tons of cues already and picks up on others like it's a breeze,” said the shelter. “If you want an actual, real-life snuggle bug that will sleep under the covers with you, this is your guy.”

Does Zeus sound like a good fit for you and your family? Contact Forever Paws Animal Shelter online, fill out the adoption application, and schedule a playdate today.

Zeus cannot wait to meet you.
