Anchor and his boys


Photos of Your Pet

Anchor loves his boys and we are constantly on the lookout for outdoor adventures! He follows his kids over logs, up waterfalls, and into the river.

We don’t know how Anchor lived during the first 4 months of his life, but in the beginning, he would get winded before us on walks, and he was a clumsy climber. But he was eager to follow us and in no time he has surpassed us all in fitness and skill. Now we’re following him off trail and into the mountains. He is loyal and protective, doing what looks like perimeter checks when we’re in remote areas and staying close when he’s off leash.

He loves other animals and people, but we know we’re his favorites. He has been a blessing and I can’t remember how we ever got along without him.

Anchor is our first dog and we’re learning right along with him and the journey has been so fun! We’ve discovered all the dog friendly places, made new friends and found new ways to live daily life.
