Rehoming by appointment

Our rehoming centres are open by appointment only. We're still rehoming, but we're doing things a little differently.


I'm looking for a new home...

About Zeus

5 to 7 Years


Zeus is an absolute stunning five-year-old German Shepherd. He is a lovely big lad who enjoys the company of other dogs; his initially greeting can be a bit intense, but once on a walk he walks alongside the other dog happily. He does love a fuss and is affectionate with his trusted carers. He dislikes the vet. He knows a 'sit' and 'come' and he is housetrained. Zeus is happy with car travel for trips out, he can be a restless traveller though. He has not shown much interest in toy play here at the rehoming centre, but this may change once he has settled back into a home environment. He is a fussy eater; his favourite treat is chicken.

Type of home needed

Zeus is looking for a loving, kind, active and, patient home with adult adopters. He is looking for a home with routine and stability to help him settle. He could potentially live with another dog who is calm and not too playful. He will need a home without cats, and we have no history of him with livestock or small furries. He is used to a quiet home environment without too much activity. Any time left alone will need to be built up gradually once he feels happy and settled. Experience of the breed would be helpful.

More about me

Zeus will be removed from the website when we have received 30 applications. If a suitable home isn't found, we will repost Zeus's profile on the website.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre in Devon.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

Start your online application now.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
