At 220 pounds, Zeus is much larger than the average Newfoundland. Most in the breed top out at 150. But don't let the size fool you. The gentle giant is as friendly as he can be.
Newfoundlands are known for their gentle temperament, and ability to cuddle. They're great with children too. On this day they walked through Georgetown in NW DC to meet and greet passersby.
Zeus is a patient soul too. He and his dad can't seem to walk more than a few feet before someone stops them to say hello and ask questions. They don't mind at all.
