Zeus is a purebred, 6-year-old Dogue de Bordeaux, also known as a French Mastiff. He was hit by a car and his previous owners were unable to pay for his treatment. He suffered fractures in one leg and hip which required orthpedic surgery. Luckily for Zeus, Pups and Pals stepped in and got him the medical care he needed. He had a 6-hour surgery back in July, has fully recovered and is doing great! Now, he just needs a home.

Zeus is a sweet, lovable giant. French Mastiffs are a very special breed and he is no exception. Zeus is looking for a companion that has experience with large dogs. He is great in the car and pretty easy to walk, despite being such a big boy. Zeus would like to go on frequent walks to help him rebuild his muscles. He is good with other big non-agressive dogs. Zeus is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped, seems to be housebroken, and is crate trained. This is one gorgeous loveable boy! Pups and Pals loves him and they know you will, too.

Bandit is a male, short-haired, 7-month-old Tabby kitty. He and his siblings were bottle-fed since they were 2-3 weeks old and are very loving. Bandit is very easy going and shows no fear when introduced to dogs. He would do well in a home with other cats or dogs as he is very loving and enjoys the company of other animals. He loves to play and makes a toy out of everything. He is curious, affectionate and playful; everything you would want in a kitten! Bandit is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, FiV/Felv tested, and ready to go to a good home.
