Dog Brothers are Inseparable

April Livingston | August 5th, 2018

Two six month old pit bull brothers named Zeus and Country had a wonderful life together once. The pair lived with their family in the state of Virginia, and then everything changed for them. Their owners had to move suddenly, and they were not able to bring the dogs with them to the new home. So, Zeus and Country were surrendered to the SPCA of Winchester, Frederick, and Clark Counties in July—and they have been there ever since. The dog brothers are sweet, friendly, and loving dogs and enjoy meeting their fellow dogs and the love humans, too. But the one thing they love more than anything else is each other: the two are inseparable.

Staff at the shelter say the two dogs are very sweet and will immediately stop barking and say hello to anyone who approaches their kennel. All things considered, they are doing okay in the noisy and often stressful shelter environment. The two dogs rarely cause a problem for staffers, unless they try to separate Zeus and Country. That is the one thing neither dog will tolerate; separating them for even a short period of time makes them upset. Staff report they will cry and whine and even bark endlessly until the pair is reunited. They love each other, and all they want to do is be together.

They prefer to be together so much, in fact, that they share everything: a bed, their food, and they even want to be together on a single leash when going for a walk. Because Country and Zeus are so bonded together, they need to both be adopted into the same home. This means it has been a bit more difficult than normal to find a good home for the pair. They are young dogs, so they have plenty of energy and need an active home that is willing to take on two dogs instead of one.
