I took a dog from Live Arico in 2011 to the UK he was over 6 years old and a large mongrel. He is now 14 years old and although his legs are begining to weaken he is still a happy baby. He's a cross German Shepherd / Great Dane plus several other breeds. I have had many dogs, but this one the most intelligent, a proper dog, that still obeys his natural instinct. Some of these dogs can be difficult to handle as they have lived like dogs with other dogs and not trained puppets. If you can work with them and the way they think, they are perfect. I will keep him going as long as I can, his name is Amigo and he truly is my best friend.
