Meet Akilo

Add to favourites

This gorgeous boy is Akilo and he is looking for someone to show him the world slowly, as he hasn’t spent much time doing a lot of dog-like things. He shared his previous life with an older dog and doesn’t seem to have much experience with making new dog friends, so we feel he may do best as an only dog right now. Akilo gets quite excited when he sees another four legged friend and will bark and sometimes try to pull towards them; however, he is doing very well being redirected away from the excitement. He is getting better everyday with this and will do well with someone who can continue teaching him that dog friends are a good thing and help him be more appropriate with his greetings and excitement levels.

Akilo is quite anxious and definitely needs an active home to keep him happy physically and mentally. He is the kind of dog that would be an excellent sport dog (Agility, Frisbee, Rally O etc.) with some training. This lovely guy enjoys jogging, running around the yard, and playing endless fetch. His ideal life would include all these things on a very regular basis, along with a whole lot of snuggles and cuddles. Akilo is a big lover and once he knows you he is more than happy to snuggle on his bed and wiggle around like a big puppy. He is looking for a patient, calm home where he is the centre of attention and doesn’t have to share with any other pets.
