Dustin Kelly made the decision to buy a puppy and went to a local shelter to care for a pal. Everyone in the neighborhood barked loudly in an attempt to catch his attention. On the other hand, a golden retriever called Zeus sat quietly in the corner of the cage, his head bent.
The workers of the establishment informed the guests of the dog’s tragic fate: owing to a shortage of space, Zeus, whom no one wanted, had to be killed the next day. Dustin’s heart sunk, and he wished he could bring the dog along. However, at the shelter, they began to persuade the man, saying that the retriever’s habit of smiling unnaturally and flashing all of his teeth at once made him “difficult to adjust.”
But there was something about Zeus that had a profound effect on Dustin. He made the decision to give the dog a regular existence. The man completed the papers and went to pick up the pet with the escort. Zeus then grinned…
“I’m not going to lie, I was terrified the first time I saw THIS,” Dustin chuckles.
The dog didn’t know how to grin, to be sure. He bared his fangs in an unusual manner, either to frighten people or, on the contrary, to capture their attention. Zeus’ disposition, on the other hand, has altered in his new home. He was always melancholy, didn’t wag his tail, and didn’t seem to care about the owner at all.
Dustin, on the other hand, was not going to quit up.
As time went on, my relationship with the dog steadily improved. Zeus’ famed smile reappeared as he grew to trust the owner more. But he didn’t appear to be grinning any more; everything about this magnificent golden dog screamed he was content.
When the retriever understood he could trust the owner and that this may be his forever home, he began to open up and revealed himself to be a humorous, carefree, and even silly creature.
The neighbors had become accustomed to Zeus’ characteristics after living next to him for five years. He no longer terrifies anyone, but instead makes everyone around him laugh. Zeus is adored by everyone, from veterinarians to groomers, and he reacts to humans with warmth and love. And Dustin is more sure that fate guided him to a dog that was on the verge of dying merely because he wanted to be happy.
