ADOPTED ON 09-23-16 - Rowdy is a little guy with a ton of tender affection and friendship to give. Although no one is sure how his story began, it is for sure he has been through a lot, and he is finally beginning to settle in nicely. Having been in foster care down south for quite a while, he arrived in CT in September to be fostered and put up for adoption. When sweet Rowdy arrived he was scared, timid, a fearful dog. We are sure that he went through something horrific for a little dog because he would cower and shake with every new situation.
Thankfully, his foster family in the north and south knew just want to do to help him adjust and today he is a healthy, happy dog with a giant personality who loves to cuddle and take long walks. He no longer cowers or shakes, but begs for belly rubs instead. He does not hide any longer, he is a proud little guy who seeks out attention from any of his 5 family members, male or female. Rowdy is tastefully gentle and far from what his name implies; he is a perfect gentleman wherever he goes. He is fully house trained and well behaved in the house, his activity level is moderate.
Rowdy sleeps in a crate at night and is quite and very content there. During the day he is gated in the kitchen and does fine although he never forgets to give you his sad face when you leave. Upon return everyone gets a huge greeting; not only does his tail wag uncontrollably, his whole body wags. He is excellent on a leash, while we're on the subject, it almost seems as if he's been professionally trained as he walks right by your side and never pulls. Jayne, his foster mom, and her family are working on car rides which seems to stress him out—he is making progress and with practice he will recover.
Rowdy peacefully lives with a cat and doesn't seem to care too much about her. He has lived with other dogs previously but is not around other dogs up north. He's a great watchdog; those ears perk up when he hears the critters outside. While in his northern foster home, they have discovered that he gets uneasy when he is held too tight and small children may not understand this. Rowdy would do well with a family that walks outdoors, he enjoys being outside even if it's just to sit in the sun. He would do well with an older couple or a family with children 12 years and up.
Rowdy has a wise quiet inner peaceful soul that is looking for a dream where his heart will soar with happiness. Are you a family or single person who will delight in walking or jogging with him? He would benefit from having a fenced yard, but not required, that he can run around in, and he would do well if you have another dog buddy for him to romp with but he would be just as happy with a human companion. Rowdy has been imagining and waiting for someone who will love him unconditionally. His basic prerequisite is an adopter who is as devoted and loyal as he will be to you. Won't you please make room in your heart home for this sweetie today?

About Our Rescue
These dogs deserve all of our attention, and in Rescue Dog Village, we are committed to our adopters and our dogs equally. We offer full disclosure and hope to make the best matches possible. Please know our adoption fees never cover our expenses. We rely on the generosity of our adopters and supporters to help us help the dogs.
Our rescue is ONLY in the business of offering FULL DISCLOSURE to adopters, and expects and hopes to engage your questions and concerns fully. We owe it to the dogs we rescue and all the wonderful families/adopters who might consider welcoming our charges into their hearts and home. Our dogs are waiting for that ideal forever home where they will be cherished as deserving family members. It's sad these second chances are even necessary for these dogs, but we are committed to them and will devote the time and energy to their rehoming, and not just MOVE them to save more dogs. We diligently and responsibly seek good matches as we don't want to re-home the dog again. These animals have already endured more than they should have, and through no fault of their own. It behooves us to be honest and forthright, and we appreciate the same in return from applicants. It's that winning combination of reciprocal trust and respect that allows for successful placements to be made. Happy adopters translate to happy dogs, and that's our goal!
Our rescue volunteers will be more than honored to be in touch with you directly and promptly, after receiving your application and conducting a mandatory a veterinarian check. If you have never owned a dog before, please submit your application regardless, and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. TAKE NOTE YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR SPAM AS SOME RESPONSES FROM US WIND UP THERE WE'VE DISCOVERED. Also, take care to contact your veterinarian to let them know a member of rescue will be inquiring about your pet history!
Thank you for respecting that we all donate our time to saving these animals, and understand we value your philanthropic and compassionate desire to help be part of the rescue team. That said, you'll understand why we are committed to the well-being of our charges and consider this veterinarian check mandatory. If you are a first-time dog owner, we will work with you every step of the way! ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION ARE AS MUCH A PART OF RESPONSIBLE RESCUE AS ADOPTION! And it takes a RESCUE VILLAGE to help the most dogs possible in a thorough manner to ensure success on all fronts, and then some! It is an awful feeling to fail a dog, and we can't continue rescue if we don't do everything we can to ensure good matches for the dogs and tender families who might adopt them. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.
Although we are an extremely small rescue group, we understand and respect your family's eagerness to be in touch and learn as much as you can about the dogs you are considering adopting. Our very experienced and devoted trainer will be happy to share all aspects of OUR RESCUE DOGS to determine compatibility once you've submitted your application, and another of our volunteers will explain the whole process of our rescue and answer any questions you might have as well
