DERVISH is the calming presence in the kennel, the lone boy amongst all the girls in the kennel! Don’t worry, he quickly made friends with all the ladies and particularly enjoys spending time with Lotus, his kennel mate. Dervish is a steady boy out in public. We are working through some dog and ball distraction and are hoping to be able to run Dervish’s pre-placement testing in the next two months. We are excited to see what the future has in store for this charming fellow!
