Facts about ROONEY

  • Breed: Whippet Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Rooney is under 2 years of age and approx. 42 pounds. He is clearly a Whippet and we cannot determine what, if any, other breed he may be. He has most of the Whippet tendencies. VERY high prey drive, leaps and runs like a deer! Rooney doesn't bark but "bays" to get your attention if someone is near.

Rooney was found literally in the middle of a road in the country. Neighbors said he had been running in and out of traffic for over a month!! Underweight and fearful, Rooney had to recover from parasites, including heartworms. He is now WELL and ready to find his forever home!

Rooney is crate trained and calm in the house. He plays with his toys and loves being near you. From Rooney's behavior we believe he was taken from his mother and siblings at a young age and then had little or no affection or interaction with humans. He is learning more all the time. At first, he didn't understand being petted or loved. Now he comes to stand by you for you to scratch his ears and hug him. He also loves to put his head under your chin to "hug" you. \

Rooney's companion is beautiful Bijou (also on the website) and they play chase, wrestle, and run like the wind. He is learning how to be a dog from Bijou and has started to smile!

About Companion Animal Network

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a volunteer-based 501c3 organization formed in 2002. Over the years, we have rescued dogs from shelters all over the state, we have taken in abandoned dogs and we have accepted dogs from owners who were unable to continue to care for their pets. Thousands of adoptable pets die each year due to overpopulation and lack of options.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Currently we do not have scheduled functions.

Our Adoption Process...

We have an adoption application to complete and return. Our review process generally takes 1-2 days. Upon approval we would contact you to arrange a home visit and bring the dog to meet you and your family. (If out of state, we have local groups that would contact you for a home visit without the dog.)
