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 Louies page as well because we are a set.

Daily Routine:
     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 its outside to play, and if there isnt 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 its 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 hes 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. Im not really interested in a ball or toy. I do wrestle with my brother for about 5-10 minutes every evening.

Personal goals:
     I dont know commands like sit, lay down, etc, but I do know "Outside, Go Potty, Wait, Off, No, Dinner, Walk".  I dont jump on people or anything, and I really dont need any corrections.  Like my brother, I can get excitable when getting on the harness/collar for a walk.  I am housebroken 100% and wouldnt 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. Im not really that playful, more just neutral to other dogs and never aggressive. I will occasionally let Louie convince me its a "hunting event" and then I will chase.  I dont 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 its doubtful Id 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.

Biggest fears:
     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:
     Id like to sit on someones 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 someones 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 to the ADOPTION heading where you can find the online application and more information about the adoption process.
