Agility dogs are usually fast and agile, but that is not the case for one large English Mastiff that completed an agility course with flying colors.

Instead of speed, the giant dog - with the fitting name Zeus - remained calm and steady. He maintained the same slow speed as he completed each obstacle. His mom continued to encourage him and give directions as he maneuvered through the course. For his size, he did amazing. He managed to fit into the tunnels and only knocked over one pole.

Zeus may have even set a record for calmest or slowest run. All that mattered is that he had fun and wagged his tail the entire time.

His large face and oversized paws were refreshing to see on the course, showing other dogs that size doesn't matter. Sometimes it is not about how fast you get to your destination, but enjoying the path it takes to get there.
