Adoptable Pet of the Week: Tony

Meet Tony, a 2-year-old Shepherd mix that’s looking for his soulmate. Your mission, should you accept, is to be Tony’s one and only human — his soulmate. His friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation say he’s a special dog looking to explore.

Here’s what Tony’s friends have to say about him:

Tony is a special dog looking for his soulmate. He would love to find a highly experienced, dog savvy adult companion living the single life who will take him to explore all the world has to offer.

Tony came to us all the way from the streets of Iran as a young puppy and is still adjusting to all the sights, smells and sounds of his new surroundings. Tony is wise beyond his years, has an insatiable thirst for training and already knows a handful of commands. As the old saying goes, practice makes perfect, so he will need someone who will be home most of the day who has the time, patience and dedication to continue his training.

With Tony, trust is earned, not given. He needs plenty of time to warm up to new people and can be quite protective of his human so he will need someone living as the only adult in a single-occupancy home. Tony is also working diligently on his dog manners and containing his reactivity when seeing other dogs on walks. Tony is not a fan of confined spaces so apartments and condos are not his cup of tea.

His wish list includes a single home with a fenced-in backyard to run, play fetch and release all his zoomies. Tony is already house-broken, crate-trained and sleeps through the night without incident. He told us that his requirements are quite modest: an experienced and single-occupancy person who will shower him with endless love and plenty of training (you), a warm spot to rest on (your lap), and cozy accommodations (your home). So, do you fit the bill? If yes, come meet Tony today and add some love, laughs and licks to your life!
