A sweet, loyal, and loving boy, Anders is 2 1/2 years old and 25 lbs. This fella loves people, along with any attention they cast in his direction, and he will shower you with kisses any chance he gets, often sneaking them in when you're tying your shoes. Anders will enjoy riding in the car, going for hikes, or running on the trail with you, but his most favorite thing will be squirrel patrol. No squirrel will dare to set foot in the yard when Anders is around. After he has completed his patrol duty, he will settle down nicely to just hang out and watch tv with you. If you have any chores indoors or outside, he'll be happy to accompany you. A quick learner, Anders already knows how to walk nicely on leash, and he's working on house training, some commands, and learning not to jump on people. Because of his size, he can be a little rough when he gets excited, but he's working on that too. He sleeps quietly in his bed at night but would prefer to sleep with his special person, getting belly rubs while giving kisses. Anders's perfect home would be on a ranch or other large piece of property (a big, fenced yard would also do), where he can run around and chase squirrels. He would also love to have a person to call his own--someone who can take him to work or someone who's retired, as he doesn't like to be left alone. He only has two other dislikes--being in a crate and cats. (He needs to be in a cat-free home.) However, he gets along well with his canine foster siblings. and he'll be so eager to please you that he would make a great candidate for further training.
