Zeus Zeus
Zeus is SeaStar’s Mascot and Troublemaker! He was brought to the centre in April 2011 as a very shy and timid puppy. Over the last few months he’s grown up around the fun loving team and has become very friendly and playful with everyone! Zeus loves to chase cats and to swim in the sea, he sometimes even follows the divers in to the water! Just a word of warning….don’t eat cheese when he’s about – it’s his favourite!!!
