GRAHAM is a quirky guy with his own flair on living life to the fullest. He enjoys training and being the center of attention. He has shown to have good stamina, persistence, and resilience, so he is trying his paws at service work. He likes to be involved in whatever is going on instead of being a bystander. Vocalizing with a few woo, woo’s is the way Graham likes to communicate but he is working on knowing when it is the appropriate time to talk.
