Zeus the dog weighed a whopping 73 pounds (that’s 33 kilograms for everyone else), so flying him back to his owner Cassandra was out of the question. This good boy was simply too big. That’s when volunteers offered their help.
A relay of volunteers drove Zeus for 4 days across 9 states
“It’s wonderful. This is a great experience, a great opportunity to show the people and communities across the United States offering to help, jumping on this—to help reunite this dog with its family,” one of the volunteers with Many Paws Volunteer Transport, Jenn Robles, told the media.
Here’s a video that goes into more detail about Zeus’ journey
The reunion was magical: Zeus’ owner was crying openly while her kids rushed to pet the doggo. “Happy Zeus-y, Happy Zeus-y. I missed you,” one of the girls said. That’s to say nothing of Zeus himself, who looked very glad to be with the people who love him. He was home. And he was happy.
