Griffon, 4 Years Old
Sometimes we help Griffons, they are working dogs used to hunt wild boar and deer in northern Spain. In temperament they’re similar to the other breeds we help – energetic, prey-driven, extremely affectionate and loyal to people and good-natured with other dogs. The main difference is that they are hounds (like Beagles, Basset hounds etc) and their recall may be even more challenging than other working dogs. Jara is a sweet-natured thing and with luck may be better ont he recall front. She’s in a shelter and has been waiting a long time. One of the volunteers looks after her and takes her for walks and once took her home for the day and said she was great in the home and got on well with her dog. Now Jara would love a home of her own.
