His name is now Griffin and he pretty much started answering to it within 24 hours, he is def a Griffin :)
No medical problems but we did bring him to our vet to be microchipped and he got the distemper vaccine as well. They said he is more than likely 5-6 and in very good health, a sweet boy!
He has been great with our nieces and nephews, he LOVES children and other people (he is obsessed with our next-door neighbor Chris). He is friendly, curious, and excited to see humans. He is definitely working on his relationship with other dogs, he seems a bit insecure so we have been working on socializing him more, he is very smart and trainable (if he is interested), if necessary we will hire a trainer as we got dog trainee recommendations from our vet.
He eats twice a day, about a cup of Diamond Naturals dog food brand (this is what his foster fed him) although he is pretty finicky and so we cook fish, beef, carrots, pumpkin, and rice to supplement his diet, he eats better than most people LOL!! He is 50 pounds (5 pounds more than when he was rescued) and the Vet said this is a very healthy weight.
He LOVES to play, we got him a ton of squeaky toys and a longer leash so that he can run more freely in our yard. He loved the frozen lake and taking walks on it. We live on a lake so it will be really interesting to see how he likes our boat and the water! We walk him many times a day, he walks the lake (2.5 miles around) at least once a day and loves to hang with us outside either on the gated deck or on a leash by the firepit! He loves all the activity in the country here in Sussex County, NJ especially as we emerge from winter.
Thank you for our little man Griffin he has brought such joy to our lives!!
