Karris George grew up with one older brother and lived in Calgary. The family made the move to Medicine Hat about 12 years ago.
Always a hard worker Karris completed high school at Medicine Hat High in 2018.
She keeps herself busy with puzzles, bike rides, special Olympics swimming, skating, dance lessons and learning how to cook and bake. When Karris finished school her first fulltime volunteering position was at the Food Bank in Medicine Hat. She went on to what really interested her, which is animals, and has volunteered at the SPCA and Coco Mutt Hut.
Karris is outgoing and has an unlimited amount of kindness towards people and animals. Her endless supply of patience for dogs is evident in all her interactions with them.
Pets and animals of all kinds were a passion early on in life. Along with her mom and brother they took their dogs to a couple of training classes at Gas City with Sterling. Karris is a natural around dogs and knew this is how she wanted to spend her time. She approached Sterling to see if he would be willing to take her on as a volunteer at Gas City. To her great happiness he said YES. During this time, she also worked on agility with her two long haired dachshunds (Harvey and Lewis).
Along with Gas City Dog Club, Karris currently volunteers with Sam and Heather at Rocking K9 Ranch, a new kennel in Medicine Hat. Karris looks forward to each class at Gas City, meeting and getting to know all the amazing dogs and their owners. Karris has learned so much from Sterling and the other trainers and hopes to always be part of the dog care and training life.
