Critter Chronicles: Champ-Prison Graduate


Champ just returned from 12 weeks of training at the Grafton Correctional Institution and is now a proud prison graduate. Champ has had extensive training in obedience, basic commands, manners and proper leash walking. He is ready and waiting to meet his new family.

Here’s what we know about Champ. He’s a happy-go-lucky boy that arrived from the Lorain County Kennel in hopes of getting a home sooner at Friendship. Champ is strong, energetic and learned his lessons well while being trained at the prison. Champ likes other dogs and seems to like kids. He would love an active family to call his own.

If you teenage kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting Sadie, please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours.
