Gentle Giants Zeus and James: Bullmastiff and Great Pyrenees Seek Their Forever Homes!

Looking for a gentle giant?  Chesapeake Humane Society has a Bullmastiff and Great Pyrenees up for adoption!

Stephanie Taylor with Zeus

At 90 lbs, Zeus is a big boy with an even bigger heart. This sweet pup was recently returned due to his family no longer being able to afford him, but they said he is a perfect dog.

He is potty trained and knows commands such as “sit”. Zeus is only 1 year old and he is still working on some manners, but he is a very smart boy and is eager to learn. He enjoys walks outside, playtime, and human affection.

Stephanie with James

James is up for adoption at Chesapeake Humane Society and is about 3 years old. He is a calm guy who would get along well with other calm dogs and kids.

Just like James in the James and the Giant Peach, he loves to explore the paths that come across, sniffing all the way.  He is heartworm-positive, but CHS will provide all the medicine he needs to get better.

Can’t adopt but still want to help? Purchase tickets to Chesapeake Humane Society’s Annual Gala on November 4th at Big Ugly Brewing! There will be delicious food and drinks, live music by The Red Stapler Duo, a silent auction, fire pits, and adoptable dogs. Beer and wine will be available to those who are 21 and over. Ticket includes two drinks. Additional drinks can be purchased. All proceeds benefit the Chesapeake Humane Society. Get tickets at
