"Stryker" A/K/A GROWLEY III, Virginia Tech, Corps of Cadets
Born: 07/04/2020
Stryker is a  son of our girl Razzle and boy, Gus. He was born on 07/04/2020 with an impressive pedigree of good temperament and soundness as well as proven ability in both conformation and performance. Three of Gus's litter-mates have a Service Dog Career, three have Pet Therapy Careers. He has numerous Aunts and Uncles who are working Service Dogs and Pet Therapy Dogs. His most famous Uncle is Tank who is the Canine Ambassador for the Corps of Cadets of  Virginia Tech, A/K/A GROWLEY II, and as such lived on campus at Pearson Hall.  Tank retired in November 2021 and Stryker took his place as GROWLEY III.
We are truly excited about his future!
