My story

Name: Griffin
Breed: GSD
Age/Sex: 10/7/2017/MN
Known health issues: Seasonal Allergies
Good with: Most dogs NO CATS. NO KIDS. NO DOG PARKS. Adult only home.
Bite history: Yes

Needs: An active sporting/working/biking/hiking home. Griffin is a gorgeous young dog, with a zest for life. He is lower drive (but NOT low energy!), so gaining his focus creates an extra challenge with his training. He's very independent in thought, and sometimes wonders 'what else' he could be doing. He gets bored very easily, and always wants to be a part of the action. He is easily one of the most vocal dogs here, and is happy to talk his way through life. He recently completed a beginner agility fun class, and easily tackled the obstacles. Confidence is not a problem, focus is! He has huge potential in the right hands, and perfect for someone wanting a bit of a challenge with their training. He has also attended a 4 week board & train with the wonderful Holly at Grassroots K9 and began ECollar work, as well as item detection. Lots of directions you can go with him, and you'll never be bored! Griffin LOVES to run, and can go all day. He is your shadow, and partner, and ready to go at a moment's notice. He is a challenge to turn 'off' if not appropriately stimulated and exercised for the day. He firmly believes there's always something to be done! If you're ready to commit to a working relationship, and want a true partner, Griffin is waiting for your email!
