Likes: Playing tug-o-war with anyone & running with his sister
Favorite Toy: Fat Cat stuffed toys; they last the longest - but he still loves them once they've been unstuffed and are "flat cats"
Favorite Food: Popcorn and Oranges are his favorite treats. He east Hill's Science Diet regularly.
Favorite Walk: Anywhere. He loves to go anywhere at all!
Best Tricks: Herding our cats and opening the doors himself to get outside (this scares delivery people to death!)
Arrival Story: I was not interested in getting a puppy of any kind until my sister had a litter and my daughter fell in love ~ how can a mom turn down her daughter's request for "the best dog in the world" ?? She was right, of course, he is the best dog in the world and I love him as much, if not more, than she does! 3 years later, we have adopted his sister (littermate) and he couldn't be happier!!
Bio: Appenzell Mountain Dogs are very rare in the US. I'm happy to say that I have two of them and they are a huge part of our family. They are instinctively extremely cautious of strangers so they are wonderful guard dogs. Once they know someone and trust them, they are the most loving and affectionate dogs!
