Achilles and Athena

Hello everyone!
I have an amazing, super sweet dog that needs rehoming! He is a is very well trained 7 year old Lab, Shar pei, pit mix (vet record documented as only a Labrador for apartment living’s sake)
Up to date on all shots, rabies, and heartworm. He is a very well taken care of, super sweet dog. The owners had to move on short notice and could not take him with them to their new residence across country.
He will come with some food, treats, a lot of toys, dog beds, complete records etc.
He is completely trained on all basic and some advanced commands, he has great recall, I comfortably walk him off leash in my apartment complex sometimes.
He is very food motivated, if you have a treat, he’ll be your best friend and do anything you ask him to lol
He is a retriever through and through, he is kind and loving, and will fetch a tennis ball as many times as you can throw one.
Here is what the original owners had to say about him for this ad:

The Dog’s name is Achilles. He is 7 years old. Super sweet dog loves to play and cuddle. Well trained and will do anything for treats. He is a mix of black lab, Sharpay, and pit. Documented as a Lab in his vet records. He weighs about 45-50 Pounds and is an athletic/ ln build. I was a dog trainer, so I trained him well, his obedience is stellar. He loves people, kids, and all animals. He is very gentle, including with our 1-year-old son. We have had Achilles since he was 8 weeks old. He grew up with 4 other dogs, a cat, chickens, and a pot belly pig so he is used to a lot of other animals. He has all his shots, and we can supply a few more months of his heart dewormer.

I have been fostering him for about a month and agree completely with his statement.
MOST IMPORTANT: The couple who had to leave also left behind a cat that I am fostering as well, the dog and cat are bonded and I prefer to find them a forever home together. This does not mean I am against separating them but keeping them together is a huge priority since they play together to keep each other entertained during the day and are best friends.
The cat is named Athena and is 4 years old and has been with Achilles her whole life since she was 8 weeks old.
