Zeus Says Thank You... all the wonderful, caring people who so generously donated to Tarheel Weimaraner Rescue so that Zeus could have surgery to remove the huge tumor on his leg.  We were all so relieved that the tumor was not malignant.

Now he must undergo heart worm treatment, meaning he will have to be kept calm for several weeks...not easy with young Weims, for sure!  He has happily settled into his foster home and thriving under their loving care.  

Soon, we hope he will be ready for his new adventure:  a final forever home!

After days of being alone, afraid, and in danger, this fine boy is now safe, warm, and receiving some much-needed health care.  He was running loose for who knows how long, in a high traffic area, not sure whom he could trust.  Finally, one woman won him over after lying on the ground, belly up, with hot dogs for several hours!  He ultimately was happy to load up in her car, and , is as sweet as he can be. 
Thanks to ALL the good people who worked to get this boy to safety!!! 
As always, your donations mean so much and are greatly appreciated.
We thank you in advance!
