Dog’s former name Hopper
What are the best things about your dog?
He is the best dog in the whole world! He absolutely loves his family and would do anything for us. He LOVES to cuddle and sleeps in the middle of us every night. He has the cutest mannerisms, he’s a fast learner, and is very treat motivated. We don’t just love him, we WORSHIP him!
Tell us about your dog’s favorite activities, sports or training:
He absolutely loves to play fetch, “monkey in the middle” (he’s our little monkey and we toss the ball back and forth – he goes bananas cuz he loves it so much) and also tug of war with pretty much any toy he can find. He also loves to do training activities with his Dad.
Give us some examples of how your dog likes to spend his/her time:
He loves doing just about anything as long as his humans are in tow. We love going to off leash dog parks and it’s hilarious to watch him because he doesn’t like to venture too far away from his family- he’s always looking back to make sure we’re still in his line of sight. He also LOVES going to work with his mom on occasion. At night, he loves to cuddle up on our laps for a good episode of pitbulls and parolees before bed.
Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments to tell us about?
We are getting him to a healthy state- finally got rid of all of the parasites and he no longer has tummy issues! Right now we are working on figuring out if he has allergies as he has had some issues with his eyes but he has been a trooper throughout the whole process! He is also very easy to train and knows many commands! “Left” “right” “front” and “back up”, “come”, “heel”, “sit”, “down”, “shake”, currently working on dropping the ball and trying to get him to stop jumping on people when he is overly excited. Doing all this at only 8-9 months old, we could not be prouder! He gets about 1000 kisses per day and loves being the center of attention (which he always is).
How do people react to your “pit bull?”
A lot of negativity and many people are scared just looking at him. There were many people close to us who tried to advise us against the breed- but we knew once we met Griffey that he would be able to change their minds.. and he has. Everyone who gives him a chance, absolutely adores him.
Does your dog have any nicknames?
Griff, Pumpkin Pie, or Poopy Butt
FAST FIVE with Griffey
1. Food: Piggy or picky? So so so piggy! He will eat anything.
2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Dog bed? Heck no he’s going straight to the human bed.
3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Loves car rides and insists on them
4. Water: No way or splash all day? In between- he will get his feet wet and may venture a little further if other dogs are swimming.
5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Day in the sun- he gets cold fairly quickly
