Hello, my name is Atticus!


More about me

Male (Medium). Africanis. Young-adult - DOB: September 2017.
I am good with:
Dogs, Cats, Children, Domestics

Shelter: Barking Mad Network (Mpumalanga)
Tel: 063 040 6071

In October of last year, I rescued Atticus, when I found him in a shed where I live. At the time he was around 3 weeks old, completely emaciated, and covered in fleas and worms. After months and lots of visits to the vet, Atticus is now a very healthy, energetic and loyal dog. He is neutered, vaccinated & dewormed.  He is happiest when he gets lots of exercises with his human, and loves to go for long walks and hikes, especially when he can run around freely. From his relatively limited interactions, he plays well with other dogs and cats. Overall, Atticus is a loving dog.

He does well with teenagers and up, but has had very limited exposure to young children. Dogs are not very well loved in the community I live in and young kids like to throw rocks and taunt dogs through fences so a home with older children would be best.

He is housetrained & walks well on a leash.

He is being homed due to his current mom being transferred back to the US.
