The faraway look in Achilles’s eyes is one of gratitude for the love and caresses from a human being. Achilles, about 7, needs to pack on a couple of pounds and definitely needs a loving human who will understand that he may have some muscle atrophy in his hind legs. Despite his slight build, he has a big heart and wants to give it to a forever person who will love him, gently walk him, and perhaps say, “Achilles, heel!” Meet Achilles at Long Beach Animal Care Services on the shelter side of the P.D. Pitchford Animal Village, 7700 E. Spring St., Long Beach, (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A586990.
