Born first, this guy was the heaviest puppy in the litter, and one of the darkest red. A self-confident
and "heroic" puppy, he was the first to be comfortable away from the puppy pile. He was a somewhat
serious puppy who took his responsibilities as the oldest to heart! He's strong, sturdy, athletic, and fearless
-- he earned his puppy nickname "Hero" because of his habit of striking hilariously noble
poses. He has gone to Chicago, where he will eventually be a police/drug sniffing/public relations dog for the
Brookfield Zoo police department. At home, he will live with Sgt. Barb Clish and her other dogs, including K-9 Millie, "The
Sniffster," who is the current drug-sniffing dog at the zoo.

August 16, 2008: The pup is great, he is a HOOT!!!!!!!!!!
Right now we are working on him following us around, which he does really
well. The barking and putting up a hissy fit in his crate is getting
better. He howls a lot when in it at the Police Department, so we need to nip that in
the bud quickly. Justice is smart -- too smart for his own good sometimes.
Ranier, my Mastiff, loves playing with Justice too.
August 2, 2008: The trip home went well, it was just long 10 hrs..... the little guy
did very well as long as we had a hand in the crate on the way home, he didn't whine.
He is very good at night on doing his business before bed and early morning too.
I will send some photos of him in his little dog pool -- boy, you're right, he sure does love
