Anteros was the Greek God of requited love, love that is reciprocated, love returned. We couldn't think of a more perfect name for this new kid.
Anteros was running lose in the Iowa countryside for about a week, before he found his way to the right farm. He managed to find a farm belonging to the grandmother of the SEPR foster coordinator. After contacting neighbors around, no one recognized him, he wasn't from the area and likely dumped in the country. He was covered in flies biting him through his short coat, his ears were raw with fly bites, and his nails trashed from running loose in the country.
They contacted the local sheriff to see if they would come pick him up, the sheriff declined because they are out of jurisdiction. There is a local pound, but they only take dogs that come through the sheriff which was already denied. Our foster coordinator also contacted the local vet to see if anyone reported him missing, they did not, so a description was left in case anyone calls.
With no tags, no microchip there weren't many options left. Living in the country it's common to shoot loose dogs, especially on farms with livestock. They had already had offers from people willing to come shoot him, since they had nothing else they could do with him. They obviously declined and reached out to us, we weren't about to leave him there to get shot and tossed in the burn pile like trash....so we scooped him up asap.
After we got him in a safe foster home, a much needed bath, fully vetted, he could finally relax. This boy is just the sweetest, always wants to be with his people right next to you. He also already knows some commands, and is such a quick learner he is quickly picking up new ones. He is slowly starting to explore life in the city, meeting canine friends, going to pet stores, so many new experiences for him.
Anteros is taking his time settling in after a rough path that lead him to the right place at the right time. With such a sweet personality, he will be snagged in no time.
Be sure to check back for more updates as he settles in to his lucky new life!
