I am a gorgeous 4-year old Rhodesian-Ridgeback mix (although that''s just what I''ve been told I look like - all I know is that I''m 100% cute!) I was adopted out to my most recent owner earlier this year and then brought back when his schedule changed and he didn''t have time for me anymore. I am looking for a new forever home where I can be the center of attention! I get along fine with other dogs and enjoy playing, but I can be selective about my friends and I prefer dogs that are more mellow like me and won''t get in my face too much. I can be very shy when I first meet people, but once I warm up to you I want to be with you always. So much in fact that I would greatly prefer to live with someone who can stay at home with me, as I don''t really like being alone. I generally seem to prefer women to men, but with time and patience I learn to love men too. I would do best in a home with no young children, as they often want to be friends right away and I prefer to warm up on my own time, and I also don''t always enjoy being handled. If you are interested in meeting me, please plan a visit to ARL Boston today!
