Characteristics: Achilles came in as a stray and is extremely friendly with people and very sweet. He just loves people, is social, intelligent, active, potty/rate trained and just an overall wonderful rottie! He is fantastic on leash and joy to be around. However, he seems selective in playgroups about what dogs he likes. Tends to prefer females or dogs who are more low key or submissive. Would do best with a rescue who can find him the perfect match if placed with other dogs! Our shelter is overcrowded and multiple animals being euthanized for space. He is the perfect companion and we just can’t imagine seeing him let go because the shelter is out of space!
