This is GRIMM,

                            

Grimm is a gorgeous German Shepherd dog. He was purchased from a breeder, they could no longer care for him so turned into this rescue. They are not versed at all with ME nor have the time to provide him the care and management he desperately needs. Grimm is a great dog who will love finding his forever home. Once he acclimates to the new surroundings, he should begin to play and have fun like most shepherds or perhaps he may like having a job do to as well.
