Griff is a strong, handsome black and tan male, weighing 90 lbs, and is approximately 3 years old. He is a stray from a Yolo County shelter, so we have no information on his background. Sometime in Griff's past, something created a scar across his muzzle, but it doesn't take away from his ability to take great pictures.
Griff has nice house manners, only moving things around being silly, not damaging anything. He knows basic commands, including sitting before going through doors, and sitting before being allowed to eat. He currently sleeps on the floor in his foster's bedroom and is very quiet. He walks nicely on a leash, but can get excited when he sees other dogs. A strong handler can work with him on this to keep him in control. He loves car rides and walks. He loves to chase the ball and can catch it in mid air, yet he isn't obsessed with it. He will put the ball in your hand nicely for you to throw some more for him.
Griff has been friendly and confident with other humans, including with the neighbor kids, however due to his size he is not recommended for a home with small children who can easily be knocked down. Continuous socialization and exercise will prove what a good companion Griff will be to the right home.
Cats and small critters are unknown.
