About ACHILLES

Although Achilles is still on crate/small area rest, he has come/is coming out of his shell! He`s a super sweet boy, housebroken and has learned that his kennel is his friend!! He has also learned a few basic commands sit, down, leave it, and wait. He is good on the leash, but not very good at heel...yet! He loves to play with his toys and is definitely a power chewer! A frozen peanut butter filled kong is his favorite!! He is very sensitive and eager to please. He could easily be a Walmart greeter the way he wants to say hello to everyone!Achilles Medical Upon arrival at ACS, Achilles was `toe touching lame.` After getting him into foster and obtaining X-rays, it was learned that the fracture while old, had not healed. Fixing it surgically only gave him a 50/50 shot at recovery; the same as kennel rest and a lot less traumatic. After just three weeks on kennel/confined area rest he`s able to put more weight on it and can even stand on it to pee...for a little while!! He is due for a recheck on his femur 8/31.
