Brothers from another mother? The Earl of Grantham (left) may be old enough to be Ron Howard’s (right) father, but with their big, Badass grins and doppelganger good looks it’s hard to tell them apart. Oh, and they’re perfect! Both!
Earl of Grantham is an approximately 7 year old lab/collie mix that weighs right around 55 pounds. Though he may not come from an official aristocracy, we think he’s got something even better - Badass! As his face suggests, he’s a lover who adores attention and belly rubs. He loves each and every person he meets, as well as other canines. (His foster mom thinks he just wants to play, but he does like to chase the kitties). Earl likes a good romp but will settle down like a refined older gentleman when asked. He’d make a great walking or hiking buddy for someone: “When you first ask him if he wants to go out, he literally bounces on all four feet straight into the air to let you know, “YES” he’s ready. Earl is just a big baby!!”
Ron Howard is an approximately 1 year old collie mix from North Carolina, about 50 pounds. We rescued him from the needle at the last minute, and the volunteers down south helped choose a Badass name fitting of a nice, sweet, all-American boy type. Ron began melting NYC hearts the moment his paws hit the ground in Brooklyn. He’s a friendly, smiley, happy guy that picks up on training pretty quickly and knows his way around a leash. He’s getting along famously with his canine foster bro and human foster sibling; he seems like a friend to everybody. His foster mom says that Ron “loves him some belly rubs and gets along great so far with everyone he has met. And he is wonderfully soft and will let you stroke him for hours. He hangs out in his crate just fine and appears to be house trained. He’s a sweetheart.”
