Champ is a long haired, very active and friendly 6 year-old German Shepherd. He is part of our owner referral program. Champ lives with two very active boys and has a motor that is always looking to play or be in the mix of things. He loves playing fetch with a ball, a Frisbee, any toy will do.

In general Champ is fine around other friendly, non-reactive dogs. However, Champ is a big excitable boy so he may spook smaller dogs. While Champ is in good health, and he is neutered, he does have EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which is easily managed. Champ requires a special powder mixed and soaked into his food 20 minutes prior to eating.

Champ needs an active family. He is an active boy. He does have a few quirks, specifically being very uncomfortable on smooth surfaces, hardwood floors especially spook him. So he will need a home with a fair amount of carpets. He is reluctant to go up and down large number of stairs, but eventually will adjust. Champ is in our owner referral program, located in Union County, NJ.
