Meet the Dogs of November Dog Yoga

Published Sunday, November 11, 2018

All five puppies from our first-ever dog yoga event in September were adopted , so we’re hoping to keep up our stellar record. Our second event took place on Sunday, November 11 and featured four furry friends: Bella, Charlie, Dillon, and Rock-Ski. Read a little more about the adoptable pups below and submit your adoption application online at

Bella is a sweet 4-year-old Dachshund mix who came to Zeus’ Rescues by way of the Humane Society of Louisiana. She is shy at first, but loves to give kisses. Zeus’ Rescues would like to place Bella in a home with her sister, Charlie, but she can be adopted individually. Bella is heartworm positive, but her treatment is covered by her adoption fee.

Charlie, Bella’s sister, is a 4-year-old, floppy-eared, friendly Dachshund mix. She loves to cuddle and be with humans. She and her sister are very good in a kennel and would ideally be placed in a home together. Charlie is heartworm positive but her treatment is covered by her adoption fee.

Dillon is a 3-year-old male Dachshund mix who was surrendered by his owner who could no longer keep him. He is sweet, playful, and house trained. Volunteers say he could thrive in just about any home.

Rock-Ski, a 7-year-old Chihuahua mix, was the star of November dog yoga. Full of personality, Rock-Ski came to Zeus’ Rescues by way of Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter. He loves walks and snacks, and loves to show off his underbite.
