When you first meet a dog at a shelter, well in these case two dogs, you’re not sure what to expect. Yet, instantaneously I knew these dogs were special. At first they were a little shy but within minutes of receiving some much needed attention you could tell how happy this pair of Rottweiler's are together. They are the most gentle, lovable, huggable, submissive, and sweetest dogs I think I have ever met. Especially considering how they have only been at the shelter less than a week and were meeting all of us for the first time, they opened quickly and showed how friendly, fun and trusting they are. We believe they are around a year old in age and they came in together as a pair and we want to keep them together if possible. You can see how much they love each other, especially on our afternoon walk at the shelter; they did not like being separated by too much distance from one another. We named the girl Hera and the boy Zeus. The male is the bigger of the two dogs. I can't even put into words how amazing these dogs are. These dogs’ personalities are so laid back and easy going it is amazing. They love being loved. They lie down and roll over to have their bellies rubbed without a problem. These dogs deserve a forever home. They both need to be spayed/neutered still and have their vaccinations updated but other than that these dogs seem happy and healthy to go to a loving home. Although Hera and Zeus are larger dogs, they act like they want to be lap dogs (like they don't know how big they are). They love the attention of people and didn't mind all the little puppies and other dogs coming up to them and jumping on them and sniffing them. Obviously due to their size they will need a home that can comfortably fit both of them and they will need daily walks. Zeus and Hera need some training on how to walk on a leash but being a woman I walked Hera myself and had no problems with her.

Shelter Name: KAPS: Daegu

I had the joy of spending the afternoon with these two. I'll be back to the KAPS shelter as soon as I'm able to spend more even more time with them.

I want to emphasize that it is VERY possible to send dogs overseas. All they will need on the Korean end is vaccinations, but they already have many volunteers willing to handle getting them on a plane in Seoul. Please consider adopting this pair and contact KAPS at [email protected]

These dogs are wonderful, sweet, easy-going, beautiful creatures! They were clearly so happy to just hang out with some loving people. They love hugs and kisses, which I think is an indispensable quality in dogs. Please consider these dogs!

I fell completely in love with these two dogs in only a few hours and you will two when you meet Zeus and Hera. They are so easy going, lovable and sweet. If I could take them I would in a heart beat. These dogs are so happy! They loved all the attention they were getting from the volunteers and were not difficult to walk in my opinion (need a little training but still listened pretty well). These dogs enjoyed all the hugs and kisses and belly rubs they were receiving. Anyone willing to take these dogs into their home will be rewarded greatly by the love Zeus and Hera show to their owners.

I'm so sorry to hear this news. Did they both pass away or just one of the pair? Either way, very sad.

Both were put down. They had diphtheria and the vet at the shelter thought that was best I guess. Made me extremely sad. These guys were just full of love.
