Facts about Rover

  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Rover is a very sweet ~5 yr old pointer mix. He weighs ~28 lbs. Rover is heart worm positive and will be starting treatment soon. Rover's most favorite thing to do is to go on walks. The minute you pick up his harness he's besides himself, just loves to walk and walk. Rover is not recommended for a home with kids, kids make him nervous. Rover is super sweet, but gets scared easily. He is super calm and quiet inside of the house. He loves to snuggle on the couch and will wrap himself in his blanket. Rover loves stuffed toys, he has a favorite bunny stuffed toy that he carries around the house in his mouth. Rover would be such a great friend for someone living by themselves, he loves to just be with you, he will follow his human all around the house. Rover is fully housebroken, doesn't touch a thing in the house when left alone. He's a good little boy. It seems that Rover had a rough life before he found our rescue. We hope that someone will give him all of the love he didn't get as a little pup. He certainly enjoys love and shows love back. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Rover please email Rover is not a needy dog at all. He is a very easy dog to have around.
