Lucius is a very handsome Akbash, who found his way into rescue after his owner dropped him off at a shelter when he could no longer care for him. Akbash are guardians similar to Pyrenees and true to his breed, Lucius is a gentle soul--loyal, alert and intelligent. He has lived indoors and does great as an inside dog with outdoor privileges. He is well-mannered, house trained and doesn’t require crating—he will bark to let you know when he needs to go outside. Lucius is a very tall and very long boy, 3’9” tall, 4’0 long. Like all Akbash, he can jump, which is why he needs a tall, six-foot fence. Grooming is easy with the Akbash shorter coat so you can skip those expensive visits to the groomers. Lucius would love a female companion to play with. He hasn’t been tested with cats or small animals. He rides well in the car, listens attentively and walks well on lead. Lucius is a very loving dog looking for the right furever home who will appreciate all his wonderful qualities as a guardian and a companion.

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102
Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
