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 FCHSlauraelizabeth@gmail.com if you would like more information! To adopt me please fill out the application at https://fchsnc.formstack.com/forms/dogadoptionform_
