About Griffon

Adoption Fee: $350
Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier / Shiba Inu
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Application form is here: http://www.emailmeform.com/builder/form/E53LXc4bsw6r997fuK4 We are looking to place Griffon within a 3 hour radius of Washington, DC. Other areas MAY be considered if we have someone that can accomplish a home visit. Griffon: male neutered about 40 pounds approximately 2.5 years old. Breed - we had a genetic test done and Griffon is a true mix! He is 12.5% Shih Tzu, 25% Shiba Inu, 12.5% Labrador Retriever 12.5% Golden Retriever, 37.5% a mixture of herding, mountain, asian, wolf hybrid and terrier breeds. So he may have some Wheaten Terrier, Tibetan Terrier, Australian Shepherd, Border Collie, Husky, Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever, etc. in him. He is a medium to low shedding dog and needs grooming every 2 to 3 months as his hair grows long. Energy level: medium to high. Needs an active family and plenty of exercise. Good with other dogs (needs to go to a home with another young, playful dog) Not good with cats (high prey drive) Good with children 5+ House-broken Crate-trained Obedience trained up-to-date on all vaccines neutered micro-chipped current on heart worm prevention and flea/tick preventative heart worm negative Best in a stand alone home with a physical fenced yard (no electric or underground fences). Again - there must be at least one other young playful dog in the house. If you do not have another playful dog in the house, your home would not be a good fit for Griffon. Active family willing to walk/run Griffon 2 times/day at least a mile each time. He's strong and will pull on the leash so he needs a relatively strong handler. Griffon is leash reactive. He gets REALLY excited when he sees other dogs, cats, horses, critters, people on bikes, etc., when he is out on walks. We are working on it but new family would need to be prepared to do some work with this and perhaps hire a trainer to help.
