Below is what his foster family has to say about him.
"Achilles is a very special boy. He fit into our routine very quickly and is by far one of the biggest lover boys around. He is always by your side, and I mean always! He has the block technique down to a T! If he wants attention he will stand in front of you and make you walk around him. Or of course, stopping to give him lovings is the preferable option. He wasn't a fan of his foster trying to back away from him to take photos. Instead, he chose to consistently step wherever she stepped to make sure that he was always touching her. A big part of that was nervousness from the camera, he may be big but he still wants to be held and coddled ? Achilles does great with everyone he meets and definitely has a more laid-back personality. Achilles is funny when it comes to attention. I would not call him a needy dog, but I would call him a velcro dog. He doesn't need constant attention, but he wants to be close to you. Usually touching you in some way. He has excellent manners and does great with the other dogs and our cats."
I truly believe that some things are just meant to be. This wasn't the first time that Achilles popped up on our radar. We first came across him when we took in his siblings almost 2 years ago. However, by the time we got them his owner had already given him and another puppy (Helios) away before we could welcome them to our family. You can imagine our surprise when these two boys ended up in the shelter because they kept wandering away from home. When we heard where they originally came from, we knew they would be joining our fluffy butt family. It was a little later than their siblings, but these boys were meant to be part of our family! ?
Achilles is a 2.5-year-old male Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever mix. He currently weighs 83lbs, he was on the thin side though. He will probably top out somewhere in the 90-100lb range.
??To Achilles's Future Family??
? Achilles rides well in the car. He may be a little nervous at first, though. He walks okay on a leash. He gets nervous and keeps trying to stand in front of you when you walk. Or may lag behind a bit. Achilles has not been to any public places, besides the vet. He did well there. He loves attention and is a big ole lovebug! Achilles has good manners around people and does not jump on them.
? Achilles has good house manners and can be trusted with free-roam of the house. In fact, he is given free-roam of the house, both when his fosters are away and at night. Achilles is potty trained. However, he has NO experience being kenneled. He has not shown to be a big chewer or barker in his foster home.
?Achilles has not shown much interest in toys or playing fetch. He would much rather get pets and lovings. We are unsure if he is a water dog.
-Achilles has not shown to have any issues with food aggression or resource guarding in his foster home.
?We are unsure how Achilles would do in an apartment. He is a big guy, but not super active. He can be chill, but with so much dog he probably does need a big fenced-in yard to romp around in.
?Achilles is being fostered around other dogs and cats. He does well with the other dogs. He is a bit indifferent to the other dogs right now. However, once he feels comfortable we think he will play with them here and there. He pays no mind to his fosters cats.
?? Adopting Achilles ??
Achilles would fit into pretty much any home. His new family should be prepared for a few things. First off, this guy is a drooler! Not a Saint Bernard level drooler, but definitely more than your average dog. Along with that, he is a velcro dog. He is always wanting to be by your side, so get ready to brush up on your maneuvering skills because you will need them with this big ole lug! ? Achilles would be fine with or without another dog in his new home. With that said, if he is being adopted as an only dog his family needs to be home most of the day. He would not be happy being left all alone for several hours a day.
Achilles is being fostered in Kiowa, OK. His new family needs to be able to pick him up(even if they are out of state). No commercial transports and no shipping. Just a fun road trip with him and his new family! ?
His adoption fee is $225. That includes DHLPP, Rabies, and Bordatella shots. He will be micro-chipped, heart-worm tested, have a fecal done, be de-wormed, be spayed/neutered, and will be current on heart-worm and flea/tick prevention.
