Reed is a 3 year old striking black sable, raised with young children and trained for dog sports. His obedience is very flashy and puts on a show wherever he happens to be. Reed has grown up in a very active household with people coming and going throughout the day. He's been both protective of his home and very accepting the moment people are invited into the house. Although Reed was the only pet in the house he saw dogs regularly and was happy to meet them. For those of us who are fans of these hard to find black sables (with the black stenciling on toes) Reed is a real pleasure to see (aka dog art).
