Ruff Ruff! My name is Rourke
|Size:||Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)||Sex:||Male||ID#:||143|
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Roukre (Guinness) is a 2 year old blue bindle boy who has no recorded races. He appears to do fine with cats and small dogs. Rourke is an extremely shy dog, who will need some time in foster to begin to get comfortable being an adored pet. He will need to be with experienced adopters, who can be very patient with him while his true personality blossoms. Rourke will do better with children who are older.
I have been living in foster care since April 2013. I am still very shy and prefer to spend my time in the walk-in shower in the master bedroom. I like when my foster mom comes into the shower to pet me, but I won't leave the shower willingly if a person is around. I really like playing with squeaky toys when no one else is watching. I want to be part of a quiet family, but I will still need lots of time and patience before I'm ready.
