Cirrus was adopted from White Paws German Shepherd Rescue in 2004 at the age of two. What a journey he has had! Between shelters, homes and foster homes Cirrus had been in 8 places (that we could track) before he came to us. He had been on 3 types of medication for anxiety. I saw him at an event I spoke at and just felt an immediate connection.

Cirrus had a LOT of energy and very little training and I believe that was a big part of why he was in so many homes. I started exercising him and training him and he began to come out of his shell more and more. He is a very bright dog! We began agility training and it really helped with his confidence. It has brought me great joy to see Cirrus grow into a confident, well-mannered dog who continues to meet every day with a wag and a smile. He is a true success story.
