Herman                   SANDY GEDDRY

Herman is a one-year-old terrier-mix-breed dog. He is a little timid when he meets someone new, but if there is a treat involved he quickly makes friends.

The terrier breed includes several different types of dogs. On the whole terriers need steady training, mental stimulation, and regular exercise. Herman will need to be active. He enjoys taking walks and loves to interact with his handler with a tennis ball.

Herman is a smart dog. He is treat motivated especially if there is a meatball involved. He still has some puppyish tendencies such as jumping so his handlers recommend him for a family with children that are twelve years or older.
