Hi! My name is Anthony and I am a happy go lucky shepherd-hound mix! I am estimated to be 4-6 years, I weigh about 40-45lbs and am very sweet! My foster mom tells me that sometimes I seem younger than they estimate because of my bursts of puppy energy! I do well with other dogs and I absolutely adore children. Because I love to give hugs to kids and adults alike, I would prefer to go to a home with older kids so I don't accidentally knock them over. My foster mom has an 8-year-old niece and she is my favorite! Every time she comes to the house I give her lots of hugs and kisses. My foster mom thinks that I must've had a little girl to call my own in my past life.

I am a little bit of an escape artist (though I just go to the front door and wait for you to let me in) so I would do best at a home with a privacy fence or in an apartment setting where I go for walks! I walk well on the leash. I am a good eater and am very food motivated! I love to get belly rubs and butt scratches! I'm a bit of a goofy dog and am a nice mix between energetic and calm. I always have a smile on my face and am excited to meet new people and explore the world.

I am crate trained but would prefer to sleep in the house on a dog bed OR in the bed with you if you will let me :). I am up to date on all vaccinations, microchipped and am soon to be neutered... Mom tells me that is a good thing but it doesn't seem so good to me! I am heartworm positive and will be treated by FCHS at no extra cost to my adopter. Heartworms are not contagious so if you have other doggies my condition is not threatening to them. My adoption fee is $225 dollars. Please contact my foster mom at if you would like more information! To adopt me please fill out the application at

Thank you!!! I can't wait to find my forever people to give lots of hugs and kisses to!

About Franklin County Humane Society

About Our Rescue Group...

FCHS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization comprised entirely of volunteers from Franklin County and throughout the state and country. It was formed in 2002 to help solve the problem of unwanted dogs and cats in this region. Its long-term goal is to build an animal shelter where area pets can find safe refuge until they can be adopted to permanent homes. Its immediate goals are to develop a strong foster program to remove adoptable animals from the Franklin County Animal Control facility and to decrease the number of unwanted dogs and cats in Franklin/North Wake counties through spay/neuter public education programs

Our Adoption Process...

1.After you find A Dog or Cat, review the description of the foster you are interested in to make sure that the information we have fits with your particular needs and desires. In most cases, the information on the website is current and gives the information that we have about the particular foster. The picture of the foster does not tell the whole story.

2.Complete the adoption application. Please make sure that you give us as much information about yourself as you can. List all animals currently living with you including other dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and rodents. The application needs to be complete in order to help us determine if the foster you have chosen is a good match for your home. has the applications. This is step one.

3.Once the application is submitted you will usually receive an email letting you know if the foster would be a good match for you and making arrangements for you to meet the dog at one of our adoption events. Sometimes a foster is best shown at the foster home due to his or her personality. We will let you know where the foster home is and arrange a time that works both for you and the foster home.We do require that everyone who will live with the foster to come and meet them. There is a chance we may tell you that the foster you are interested in is not a good match and may suggest another foster.

4.If, after meeting the foster you decide you would like to adopt him or her, a home visit will be scheduled. Someone from the Franklin County Humane Society will call and do the visit. The foster does not come on the home visit. Home visits are required before any foster leaves our program.

5.If more than one person applies and meets the same foster, all things being equal, we go in the order the applications were received.

6.Once the home visit has been completed, you will be asked to complete an adoption agreement. Please read the agreement carefully to make sure that you understand what you will be agreeing to.

7.An adoption fee of $250 for dogs under 6 months $225 for 6 months and older and $95 for cats, Senior Cats $50. This fee helps us to provide the necessary medical care and other needs for the fosters while in foster care. All FCHS fosters are altered, current on shots, micro chipped, and to our knowledge, in good health before they are adopted out. We are all volunteers and as such receive no monetary compensation for our work with the fosters. The adoption fee is used to help defray costs in the rescue and care of the fosters.

8.Congratulations! You are on your way to having you new furry companion. We hope that you and your new companion share a life of love and happiness. We welcome any comments you may wish to give us about your foster at any time.
