ADOPTED ON 04-16-16 – One of the most interesting features of performing rescue work with German shepherds is understanding that each of these dogs have a full, broad and totally unique personality. Trust me, Mr. Iggy is no different, a long haired, red and black, 90 pound, 3 year old, German shepherd that we lovingly refer to as “the boss”. Iggy has this air of authority about him that just says “my pack, my house, my rules” but he does it such a way that does not use intimidation, rather he wins the other dogs over with calm, respect, capability and the promise of “don’t push it”.

In my world this young man would have been a chief master Sargent tending his wards, graveled and tough but totally respected by all due to his character. Make no mistake Mr. Iggy is great with people (especially children) and other dogs but if the rough housing gets too rough he will move in and settle everybody back down, usually with nothing more than a firm chest bump. I have totally enjoyed my training journey with this guy, I am 100% sure that I gained more about training from him than he did from me. There is no other way to say it, Mr. Iggy set the new standards for our training and socialization programs. I hear they are looking for a new Supreme Court justice, I think I will nominate Iggy, do I hear a second!
