Meet Antilles (Ant)

Antilles didn’t have the best start in life. He entered the Shelter as a stray, and as far as we can tell, he never experienced the luxuries of living in a home. He has done a great job acclimating! He has learned so many things in his time with us and has grown very comfortable. Most recently he has found the courage to master going up and down the wooden stairway. These stairs lead to his foster sisters bedroom, and he loves lounging with her….braving the steps was totally worth it! He can often be found in her room keeping her company. We continue to be impressed by his willingness to learn, overcome, and be the best dog he can be.

Ant is eager to please and is food motivated. He has already learned some basic obedience in his foster home. I bet he would enjoy participating in an obedience class! His favorite toys are puzzle toys. He likes to figure out ways to get the treats out, just as he likes to figure out ways to please his humans. He never turns down a game of tug-of-war. His favorite time of day is mealtime (who can blame him!). If you peel a banana, he will come running! He hopes you will share a bite! He also enjoys hopping in the car to pick up the kids from the bus stop. He sits quietly and waits, watching out the window. He will make an excellent side kick on your next road trip.

Antilles does best when he has opportunities to play or has a walk outside. When he is bored, he has “puppy-like” tendencies. He may nibble at your clothes to get your attention or paw at you, asking for some love. In most instances, he is happy to chill and will go with the flow, but, he does need daily activity. Playing with his doggy pals, a walk, mini training session, or some play with toys is enough to satisfy him. He is easy to please and will snooze most of the day away. Ant does well in his crate while his foster family leaves the home and over night.

Ant loves other dogs! He is well mannered and respectful. He listens to the cues of other dogs and respects their space. Doggy Day care is his “happy place”! He is a play group Rockstar! He is playful and energetic…a staff favorite! Ant would be a perfect addition to your pack.

Antilles is a sweetheart and I am certain he will make you smile every day. He has an awesome personality and is a loving companion! While he is playful, he is also a champion cuddle bug. He loves nuzzling into you and he will lull you with his sweet bulldog snores. His resiliency is inspiring, to go from a starving stray walking the streets of Philadelphia to a loving, trusting member of a family is amazing. You will hit the jackpot bringing this treasure into your home.
