Meet Roo! Fostered in CA
Roo has come a long way in foster care. He is still shy, but he loves whole heartedly. He is starting to get the hang of going potty outside. He does mark things from time to time (like his siblings' dinner plates) but the need to mark is growing less and less. Roo loves toys and walks. If you need his attention, just rattle his lead and he will come running.
Roo would be best suited to a single female owner who has at least one other dog for him to play with. He tries to engage the dogs in foster care, but they are all over 10 and wear out must faster than Roo. This little guy has the sweetest disposition and loves being with his foster mom. He will initiate petting and attention. He is a very well behaved little dog. Sometimes he is shy and wants to hide under furniture, but is easily tempted out with toys and leash shaking.
Once Roo is comfortable and loved, he will give you his heart!
Roo is a very sweet, very scared little dog. He is a Chinese Crested mix who is about two years old. After a rough beginning, Roo is learning how to be a loved dog. He loves his soft bed and sometimes will approach his foster mom for cuddles. He will always accept cuddles and petting if he is laying down first. He still runs away from approaching humans. He does love treats, but is sometimes reluctant to take them from a hand. However, he loves cheese and will almost always approach his people for cheese.
Roo is beginning to come out of his shell and show us what he is like under that scared exterior. He loves toys, loves to snuggle with his new dog siblings and loves to explore the yard. The perfect home will love him for who he is and continue to let him grow. He is good on a leash and can sit sometimes. He sits better for treats.
Sometimes we call Roo "Ghosty Boy" because he is so quiet and likes to be sneak up on you.. When you think you are alone and getting a quiet snack, there is Roo, putting his paws on the back of your leg to make sure you don't forget to share. He is a gentle, sweet boy who wants lots of love and treats.
Little Roo does mark a bit, but he will be neutered soon and hopefully that will taper off. In the meantime, he wears a belly band in the house. He gets along well with all the other dogs in the house. On a recent outing, he did not demonstrate any fear when a LARGE puppy wanted to check him out. There are no cats in his current home, so it is hard to judge how he will do with them. Roo is not overly comfortable with men and is not fond of children.
Roo will do best in a home with at least one other dog because he gets anxious when left alone. He does not like crates, but does reasonably well in a gated room when left at home with the other dogs. Mostly, Roo just wants a patient person who will help him forget that he was ever unloved. He is an adorable baby waiting for his furever home so he can reach his most loving potential.
