Hi… my name is Achilles.

Adopted May 6, 2015

Achilles has earned/received his American Kennel Club (AKC)  Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification.

When I first came me to TALGV last year, there was “no room at the inn,” so I stayed at a local boarding kennel for a while where the TALGV volunteers visited and walked me periodically so I didn’t get lonely. Well that was then and this is now, and things sure have changed since then! I’m SO proud to announce that I just earned my nationally accredited Canine Good Citizen award! That means that I’m friendly with strangers, do “heel, sit, down, and stay” on command, come when called, and lots of other “good behavior” things (check it out on the Internet!). I’m a classic black and white Staffie mix boy, now a bit over two years old, who is just aching for a chance to prove that I’m a real winner!
