A Rhode Island animal shelter is trying to find a forever home for a dog that might be part-wolf, reports KCRG.

Per the Potter League for Animals, Zeus is looking for a home in an area that allows hybrid animals. They think he’s a wolf hybrid – one-third wolf, one-third German Shepherd, and one-third Husky

His previous dog parent surrendered him to the shelter because of a change in personal circumstances. They confirmed his breed, but the shelter is currently trying to obtain DNA to confirm. 

Part-Wolf Pets Illegal in Rhode Island

They said that Zeus is silly and affectionate, and loves to be pet. However, having an animal like Zeus in Rhode Island and the surrounding states is illegal. Not only that, but he lives with a medical condition that can make him prone to seizures – though this is managed with medication.

Previously, Zeus has lived with other dogs as well as cats and children, and has generally been an indoor dog. At present, the Potter League for Animals is working through the applications to adopt Zeus, trying to find the best match for the part-lupine pup. 

A Social Media Star

The shelter shared Zeus’ plight on its Facebook page. “Zeus is about as fine a canine specimen as you could possibly imagine. He is wonderfully magical to watch as he walks. His movements are mesmerizing, and he looks like he just walked out of a scene from Twilight (yes, we just went there),” they said. 

If the comments on their post are anything to go by, there should be no shortage of suitors for Zeus. “He just took a DNA test, turns out he’s a 100% good boi!!!!” joked one commenter. “Hope this sweet boy finds the right home soon.”
