“He’s really spunky, really sweet, with good manners,” Greene added. Zeus was so eager to love and be loved that the shelter workers knew the right match was out there, somewhere.
So they posted Zeus’ story on Facebook.
When Katherine Elliott spotted the post, something clicked. Elliott’s dog of 13 years had passed away in August, and though her family had always had pets, this time she wanted fate to intervene when it came to welcoming another animal into her home.
“We figured something would just wander onto our property, much like our cat did a few days after our dog died,” Elliott told The Dodo. “We figured we would know when the time was right.” When Elliott saw Zeus’ gentle brown eyes on her screen, she felt an instant connection and knew there was no time to waste: “I was like, ‘I have to go get him.’”
