Roo (special needs)'s Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Roo (special needs)'s Story...
Arrival Story: Roo (named for his kangaroo-style hopping) was dumped at an animal shelter with two very misshapen front legs. His left front leg is folded at the wrist, and he doesn't use it. His right front leg is bowed as well. A Faithful Friends volunteer took him right home to start giving him the care he needed.

Age / Weight: Roo is about 4 months old and 25 lbs. We expect him to be about double that size when he is full grown.

Personality Description: Roo is fun! He loves the dog and the toddler at his foster home...especially the toddler's toys! Roo doesn't seem to realize that he had been given a tough lot in life. He is a very happy boy and gets around great right now on three legs (his left front leg is deformed so it is unusable).

Faithful Friends is taking Roo immediately to the vet and then to a specialist to see what treatment/care he needs for his legs so he can lead a long healthy life.

Ideal Forever Home: Roo is a great dog who will likely fit into many different homes. He just needs a family who thinks that he is beautiful as he is and who will help him through physical therapy or whatever treatment is ahead of this guy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roo (special needs), a Rochester Hills Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Rochester Hills, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) puppy from a breeder in Rochester Hills.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rochester Hills already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Rochester Hills breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!

In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue.
