Banjo the Mixed Breed


Dog Breed: Wirehaired Pointing Griffon / Catahoula Leopard Dog

Banjo is a rescue dog with loads of personality! He is a mix between a Catahoula Leopard Dog and Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. He is super active, figuring out how to get over our backyard fence no matter how high we seem to build it and he absolutely loves the words "treat" and "walk." But my favorite quality in Banjo is when he is ready to relax. He is the biggest cuddler. Whether I'm knitting or just watching TV he loves to climb on the couch and bury himself between me and the back cushion. The closer his face is to yours the better! If he gets lucky enough to be allowed to sleep on our bed he demands to burrow under all the covers, only to drag himself out in the middle of the night panting because he overheated himself. We rescued Banjo because our other dog needed a best friend while we were off to work. We couldn't be happier with how well they get along and now I couldn't imagine a world without Banjo!
