We adopted Gryffin (his name was then Ranger) almost 1.5 years ago when he was just 9 weeks old. While I had dogs growing up, I had never been the primary caretaker and my fiance had never had a pet before in his life. Needless to say, it was a complete life-changing moment when we brought him home for the first time and realized it was solely up to us to care for him. We got extremely lucky because Gryffin was an absolute angel as a puppy (our throw pillow would say otherwise, but it was a small thing to lose). He soared through obedience training and is the best behaved dog I have ever owned. He is now over 100 lbs. and the center of our world. He loves to go on walks, run around outside, and spend time making friends at The Watering Bowl. We love him so much that we had to include him in our engagement photos, since he is such a large member of our family. We are so thankful that Gryffin is in our life and for Gateway Pet Guardians for introducing him to us. We are forever grateful.
