Name: Anthem DOB: 06/30/2020 Weight: 33 Pounds Adoption Fee: 400.00 Hi!  My name is Anthem and my foster family says I am very sweet.  I give lots of kisses, love attention and love to snuggle.  Because I have just joined my foster family and am still adjusting to all the luxuries of a loving family life, I am still quite thin.  I really like wet food and treats but will eat dry food as well.  My foster family is working with me to be gentler when taking treats.  Because I’ve not been with a family until now, I do have some food insecurities and am unsure of other dogs being around when I’m eating – my foster family thinks I probably had to fight for my food.  I’ve had a few accidents in the house, but when kept on a leash in the house this helps tremendously and my family is working with me on potty training.  I’ll get there in no time and will be a good boy!  Even though they think I’m part Labrador Retriever, I really don’t like the lake.  I do like to chase birds though and they say I’m a jumper.  I will need some leash training  – I’m just excited about all the new things life has in store for me.  I’m not a fan of small children so a home with older children would be best. If you have questions or are interested in me, please fill out an adoption application at An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.  Please check out our website, for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals!

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
