That smile…I am under his spell. A dream playmate!! So gorgeous, fun to be with, friendly and even affectionate, although we never met until now. I guess he is young and silly and trusting. Grant loves to play, and he will go with what ever you might entice him to do. He is a great walker, surprisingly not much of a “puller”, does his business on the way, chases the pigeons and seems very happily excited to meet other dogs. Bouncing with his peers in playgroups is absolutely to his liking. He can sit on command, takes treats well, runs after the ball (he does not guard it) and is one happy pup playing chase and tag. He can be a little mouthy, too. Grant came to us with excellent comments: good with kids, strangers, relaxed around other dogs and fine with his 2 cats (a bonus). He is also said to be mostly house trained and well behaved when left alone in the house. Well, I fell for this young and gorgeous young man who so would love to write many new pages in his life, with you, as your forever best fiend. Come and meet lively and wonderful Grant at the Manhattan Care Center
