The Story of Rowdy
Rowdy has lived his whole life being obedient and well-trained as an active hunting dog. When he could no longer perform his duties, he was brought to a local vet clinic to be euthanized. Luckily, the vet clinic, that we also work with, knew Rowdy deserved to live out his retirement with a family. They stepped in to ensure that by reaching out to our Ruff Start Rescue intake team. Here is where we need your help – we need a foster commitment for Rowdy.
Rowdy absolutely loves humans. He hasn’t met a man, woman, or child he didn’t want to be next to. He’s a very calm and quiet boy. His hunting background has given him a fantastic nose, which is helpful for smelling out yummy treats. He may try to see what’s good on the counter if no one is looking! He has done well with cat and dog meets, but we recommend very slow introductions as we don’t know his history well. Rowdy didn’t have blankets in his old home, so he gets very excited to have them now! He will steal them to snuggle and chew. He is very responsive to commands and any type of communication.
We would love for Rowdy to join Ruff Start Rescue, and we need a foster to step up for him. His ideal foster home will be patient, promote slow intros, and give him all the love he has been missing.
