Rebel is looking for an active adopter who will play with him, take him for long walks every day and keep him occupied the rest of the time. He hopes that you work from home or can take him to work with you because he has never been left alone for very long periods of time. Rebel expects to sleep in bed, cuddled up with you at night. He needs a securely fenced yard to run, play with you and burn off his excess energy. He must always be securely harnessed and leashed outside a fenced area and secured in the back seat when riding in a car. He will not be placed in a home with children under 12 years old.
Rebel’s birthday is January 6, 2013 and he weighs about 14 lbs. He is healthy, up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, heart worm negative and taking preventative. He was diagnosed with a grade 4 luxating patella in his back left knee and had surgery to correct it. He is being fostered near St Paul Minnesota and we prefer to place him within a few hours driving distance. If someone outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must still drive in to meet him. Our dogs may never be shipped in cargo and we do not transport them to adoptive homes. They are never placed in homes with invisible (electric) fencing. Doggy doors are OK as long as they are secured at night and when you are gone. Rebel is small enough to be carried away by a coyote or other predator so should never be outside alone.
