Champ came to the shelter almost 2 years ago.  He was just under 1 year of age at the time.  As you can see by his pictures, he's a beautiful boy.  We have never made any bones about it that Champ needs a committed and loving owner.  He needs a owner/owners who will be his boss and commit to training.  Initially I would have said he would be better off with no other dogs, but with a committed owner and patience he would probably do well with another dog (the right dog obviously.) Over time he has done well with other dogs at the shelter and when outside will even paw and clean/lick the dog in the adjacent run. In late 2016 we hired Steve Del Savio from Pack Leaders who works with Cesar Milan and we learned a lot and in turn Champ has learned a lot.  Champ will be a friend for life, but he needs to know that his adopter is patient and committed.  His original adopter was only 19 years old and should never have been allowed to adopt him....he was crated most of his first year of life, never neutered and left on his own 90% of the time, and his owner was way to young to know any better.  He is a high energy dog.  He would do ok with older kids, but probably shouldn’t be with younger kids.  He needs someone who is truly committed, is experienced and will commit to the long haul.  

Adoption Fee: $140.00
