Hello, I am Anya! My brother Louie and I are looking for a new home together. Our mom loves us but a change in living has her looking for a new family that can give us the life we deserve. Below you can read more about me, then be sure to check out Louie's page as well because we are a set.
At wake up time (6:30 am) I go outside immediately, Then breakfast with my brother at around 7:00. At 8:00 when everyone leaves for work, I go in my crate. At noon someone comes home to let us out for 30 minutes, then back in the crate until work is over at 4:15. After that it's outside to play, and if there isn't a lot of summer heat or icy cold, we walk around 4:30-5:00. I spend most of the evening playing with my 2 year old kid. Dinner is at 7pm, then it's snooze on the dog beds, chew on bully sticks, and wrestle with my brother. I go out for the last time at 10pm, then bed at 10:30. I have to sleep in my crate because my brother is sometimes naughty if loose all night, and he whines if he's locked up without me.
What I love to do:
I love being pet, and being scratched, and belly rubs or ear rubs. I also enjoy sitting on your lap, sleeping, and being pet more. I like walks where I can sniff everything, and chewing bully sticks. I'm not really interested in a ball or toy. I do wrestle with my brother for about 5-10 minutes every evening.
I don't know commands like sit, lay down, etc, but I do know "Outside, Go Potty, Wait, Off, No, Dinner, Walk". I don't jump on people or anything, and I really don't need any corrections. Like my brother, I can get excitable when getting on the harness/collar for a walk. I am housebroken 100% and wouldn't dare go in the house.
Favorite thing to do with my best friend:
I like to pretend to be tough when another dog walks past our yard so there can be some howling and carrying on. But when confronted face-to-face with a new dog, I am usually neutral or even submissive. With dogs that I know well I get along fine. I'm not really that playful, more just neutral to other dogs and never aggressive. I will occasionally let Louie convince me it's a "hunting event" and then I will chase. I don't have big resource-guarding behaviors. If my brother sticks his nose in my food dish, I will warn him with a little growl. I have never met a house cat or any other kind of pet. though it's doubtful I'd be aggressive.
Kind of family I want:
I am extremely tolerant of my two year old human girl as she crawls on, hugs and kisses me. But if I had my pick, I would probably choose a quieter house. I love, love, love petting and attention. I just want to be a lap dog. I can be trusted with kids but I love quiet petting and an extremely chaotic, noisy, or fast-paced household/lifestyle would not be a great match for me.
Strangers scare me- especially big, loud men and deep voices. I am fine with men I know, but if meeting someone I am not acquainted with, I will prefer to hide. I see my crate as a safe haven to go to.
Ideal weekend plans:
I'd like to sit on someone's lap getting belly rubs all morning. Then have a long nap, followed by a loooooong walk to sniff the whole neighborhood all afternoon. Next, another nap, then continue sitting on someone's lap and being pet all night long. Finally, a bully stick to chew on before bed.
If I sound like a good fit for your home, please check out my brother Louie as well, since we are a boxed set! Then head over to the ADOPTION heading where you can find the online application and more information about the adoption process.
