    About two weeks ago, I was waiting for my girlfriend to pick me up from work. She called me, (which she never does) to tell me she'd found a puppy on the side of the road with his mouth taped shut. She said he needed us, and we could take him to the shelter tomorrow (since we have too many pets).
    She picked me up, and the poor thing was coated in fleas, skinny, with a belly full of worms. He was only about five weeks old, too.
    We've given him regular soakings in Dawn since then to combat the fleas, since he's the only animal in the house not on flea medication yet. He still has a few, but is doing much better. He's also been wormed, and is starting to pick up weight.
    My girlfriend's older dog, Sophie, is seven, and has a brain tumor. We were planning to get my girlfriend a puppy at some point, because she's unhappy without a dog, and if she waited until after Sophie passed, she'd be too miserable to want to get one for a while. This little guy... Just kind of fell into our laps, and I couldn't make her give him up. Sophie also loves him, she likes to mother him.

    Meet Zeus.

    He's tiny, too.. he's only about three pounds :( I don't understand some people. There's so many shelters they could have dropped him at

    Could he have any boxer in him?
    He is such a cute little thing.
    I'm constantly disgusted with people's behavior towards animals. I've been in the UAE coming 5 years and I haven't seen such horrific things than I have seen here. Breaks my heart daily. Glad the little guy now has a loving home of his own.

    Beautiful! Regardless of what he has in him, expose him to as many things and animals as possible while a pup. Especially your horses and cats if possible. If there's pibble in there, they must meet the animals you have or will encounter early in life. Wonderful save! So glad he found a good home.

    We're actually uncertain if he's deaf or not.
