Cordillera - A brief overview on the PNP's latest hero named Zeus. Zeus is an abused dog, battered and severely malnourished wherein Mr. Ruben Pasag Ventura (the pioneer handler of Zeus) adopted and rehabilitated him.

While Zeus was on his training on K9 SAR,  he couldn't pass the initial screening of service dogs because of his lack of drive and stubbornness but his trainers never gave up on him until he graduated in his class. In fact he graduated as the goat (last place).
