Furyan, a Dutch Shepherd, is named for a character in The Chronicles of Riddick. CHS found Furyan hanging out with his owner Sarah at Cafe Vivace. Known for their work in dog sports, herding, police and military work, Dutch Shepherds are very athletic and obedient dogs. Other than being a very friendly dog, Furyan is also training in a dog sport called IPO, known as Schutzhund in German, which means “protection dog.” IPO focuses on obedience, tracking, and protection.
