Okay, maybe he’s not quite perfect, but Rookie’s definitely something of a doggie perfectionist. That’s why he’s so quick to learn new tricks and is conscientious about rules like sitting before crossing the street or having his leash put on.
Are you also a habitual rule follower? Please read on:
- A social butterfly: Rookie loves to give and get attention, from humans, but also from dogs … and cats! His love is not speciesist, by any means! Rookie is so good with other dogs that he’s used to help socialize FFL program dogs who may be fearful of other canines.
- Smarter than you: Rookie is a training whiz! He knows how to sit, down, target, and make eye contact on cue. He also knows commands for turning left and right while walking on leash! Best of all, he can obey his cues in distracting environments, such as in the presence of other dogs and can work for affection and play, as well as treats.
- A gentleman: Rookie is very well-behaved at home; he is house-trained, crate-trained, and not destructive when left alone. He is also polite when playing with his human friends. He loves to play fetch and tug, but he is always gentle and drops toys on cue.
- He’d be an excellent actuary: Rookie thrives on consistency and loves a schedule, so it can take him a few days to settle into a new home and routine. On the other hand, because he’s charmingly pedantic, he’s also a superb rule follower!
You might say that Rookie is a bit too perfect, being such a stickler for rules and structure, but he would be a superb companion for someone who is just as conscientious. Does that sound like you? Swing by FFL today to meet Rookie and you are guaranteed to love him as much as we do!
