 "The Warden"

Warden is an independent excitement. He loves to rub up against your legs to let you know that he is around. Warden loves to be outside so don't worry if you see him in our parking lot. He does not mind any of our hospital visitors, in fact, he usually just sits and stares as the huge great danes we see, sniff and pull to get closer to him.
