*ALL KENNELS ARE FULL – ACHILLES NEEDS ADOPTER/FOSTER/RESCUE ASAP AT ACCT PHILLY – 111 W. HUNTING PARK AVE., PHILA., PA 19140 *
Achilles was the bravest, handsomest, and greatest warrior of the army in the Trojan War and our Achilles here at the shelter, is also the bravest and handsomest. He may not be a warrior on the battlefield (he’s a lover, not a fighter), but he is a Tennis Ball Warrior! Achilles is brave because he was brought to the shelter upon his owner entering hospice care. He keeps a brave face all along but still longs for his family.
Achilles is the handsomest because he has adorable floppy ears, speckles all over and eyes that show his soul. Achilles is a tennis ball warrior because this boy could play fetch with tennis balls for hours if you let him! It is the one thing that this boy craves and needs to be happy. He will run for the ball before you even throw it and if he has one in his mouth, he will try to squeeze two in there.
Our sweet Achilles is 5 years old (the best age!), approx 70lbs and tries to remain house trained while in the shelter. He is a lover of people and other dogs. He does tend to come off pretty strong when meeting new doggie friends, but if they don’t like it and they correct him, he takes it like a man and will take a step back to relax (usually by just plopping his butt on the ground, he doesn’t just sit, he plops!).
Achilles is an active boy so he is in need of an active home that will give him the mental and physical stimulation he needs (he is a warrior, remember, and warriors are always on alert). In his time here he has met young children and he was a total gentleman, sitting at (and on) their feet so they could pet him. Achilles is a true joy to be around and once he opens up to you, there is no turning back, you will officially have fallen in love with this tennis ball warrior.
Come meet Achilles at Acct Philly, 111 W. Hunting Park Ave., Phila., PA 19140 1pm-8pm M-F and 10am-5pm weekends/holidays. Email Achilles’ best friend at firstname.lastname@example.org
