Orion has arrived to join the JOY Dogs Jazmine, Oscar and Yola. He coped well with the three days of travel from Barnaul in Siberia, to Moscow (where he overnighted), then Frankfurt and onto Johannesburg. He is quite the traveller. He was a good guest at quarantine and I am told he played a lot while he was there. Now Orion is firmly ensconced in his home in Glenvista where he loves exploring the garden and getting to know his new family. Orion seems to be well suited to his upcoming work and loves meeting new people. A big thank you to his breeder Valeriya Suvorova. Visit the facebook page Oscar and the JOY Dogs for more photos and news.
