Anatolian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

     All about me! Name: Trooper Breed: Anatolian shepherd mix Age: est. birth date 01/17/2012 Height: est. 25.5 inches when full grown Weight: about 60lbs when full grown Good with dogs? yes Good with men? loves 'em Good with women? loves 'em House trained? working on it Crate trained? yes Leash trained? yes Must have fenced in yard? yes Foster home is: Dreamweaver Farms Pacolet SC Date into rescue: 4/17/2012 How I act when I first meet new people: I love everybody! Why am I with a rescue group? UPDATE 11/30/2013: Our beautiful boy is back with CPR after going to a home for a few weeks. Sadly, divorce intervened in what we ... (Read More)hoped was a long term placement, and so Trooper came back to us. His Demodex came back quite strongly for a few weeks, but he's already looking much better. Trooper is a favorite at Dreamweaver Farms, and while we want every dog into a forever home, it was very good to see him back. Trooper is currently undergoing Mitaban dips weekly. Thank you to all of Trooper's fans for helping us get him healthy. UPDATE 9/5/13: Trooper finally has grown all of his hair back, and he is healthy and beautiful! He will likely remain on Ivermectin for the rest of his life, however his condition is finally under control. Trooper is one of the most good-natured animals that you will ever meet. He is great with all people and all animals. He is one happy guy, who deserves a family of his own. Trooper has never known life outside of the kennel and is anxious to see what it is all about! Trooper will make a fabulous pet for just about any family! He has really turned into a perfect gentleman. Trooper has not been taught any commands yet, however he is crate trained and gets along with all other animals--two or four legged. He is one of the happiest dogs that you will ever meet and wears a smile that will melt your heart. He loves to show affection! This past year has been very rough on Trooper. He was abandoned on a dirt road, and when we found him, he was malnourished, dirty and had a broken toe. Shortly after healing those wounds, he wa diagnosed with Demodex mange, but after his initial outbreak of mange, we have it under control. He does, however, have to take a daily oral medication (2.2 ml of ivermectin). This medication is easily given to him as he has been on it for several months now and is used to taking it. Below is an insert from 'In most dogs, Demodex causes no symptoms. However, if an dog's immune system experiences irregularities, the mite may trigger hair loss or other dermatologic problems. Dermatologic problems from Demodex are most common in dogs less than two years of age. Therefore, the syndrome sometimes is called puppy mange.' Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip. Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog. Others here may be a better fit for you. It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description. We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.

PIease Read Before Adopting an Anatolian Shepherd in South Carolina
    Anatolian Shepherd Dogs can make good pets in South Carolina if they match your IifestyIe. The Anatolian Shepherd is a large breed with strong herding instincts. Anatolian Shepherds need strong leadership from their masters and are matched best with owners who have experience training dogs. An Anatolian Shepherd is a very loyal dog with strong protective instincts towards its loved ones. Anatolian Shepherds are wary of strangers and need to be introduced to new people. An Anatolian Shepherd is very friendly towards people he knows well. Anatolian Shepherds are caring towards children, but may not know their own strength and therefore need to be supervised around younger kids. A large fenced yard or farm environment is best for Anatolian Shepherds. Its ability to herd animals and protect the perimeter of a property makes the Anatolian Shepherd an excellent working dog.

lnteresting Anatolian Shepherd Trivia Low-Cost South Carolina Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Anatolian Shepherds have long been valued by herdsmen for their ability to best wolves in a fight. Anatolian Shepherds are very closely related, some say identical, to the Kangal, which is the national dog of Turkey. Exporting Kangal dogs from Turkey involves so many restrictions that it is effectively outlawed. Dogs similar to the Anatolian Shepherd existed over 6,000 years ago in Mesopotamia. Anatolian Shepherds have such strong herding instincts that they will treat other household pets as their flock and become very protective of them.
