This is Shank...
Ever seen the TV Show "Bates Motel"? It's a spin-off of the classic horror flick Psycho, documenting the twisted relationship between fictional serial killer Norman Bates, and his mother Norma.
Shank is my Norman Bates.
While he isn't necessarily my typical style of dogs (I like bold, reckless dogs with more drive than sense), Shank, with his eerie attachment issues, his calculated approach to life, and his unearthly intelligence, manipulated me into loving him in less than 24 hours.
Now, he's at the heart of everything I do.
Shank is training for a sport called French Ring after which he plans to compete in IPO. He isn't your typical sporty dog. He has an edge. A serial killer-esque about him, having been returned to his breeder for some hefty aggression at just 4.5 months old.
This is Shank's trip. We are simply his passengers...
