Anakin was born in Austin, TX, about 2.5 hours away, to a wonderful breeder. He came home on July 1, 2016 and he’s been my ever growing shadow since.

Here are some quick Anakin facts:

  1. he was the first born and largest in a littler of four
  2. he has two brothers and one sister
  3. his breeder thought he was dead in the birth canal and was going to preform extreme measures to ensure his mother’s & siblings’ survival but decided against it (thank God)
  4. he came home at just over 2.5 months
  5. he will eat anything I give him, literally
  6. food and praise are his motivations in life
  7. he’s very smart but he fools you with his derpy face
  8. give him 10 minutes and he’ll fall asleep anywhere
  9. he loves his muzzle to be scratched
  10. his favorite toys are cat ones, he will not destroy them but a dog toy is fair game
