Good with dogs,
Spayed or Neutered,
Remember the super cute boy from the playground that everyone thought was just so charismatic and even the teachers had to hide smiles when he was being just a tad naughty? The one with the dreamy eyes that wasn’t a jock or a bookworm, but was perfectly in between?. Please meet Rogan, he is one of those boys and perhaps the James Dean of dogs.
Rogan is a handsome young red merle Australian shepherd who is just over a year old. True to his breed, he is picky about sharing his affection. He doesn't love men and would prefer a home with just one special lady. He is a little slow to warm up, but when he feels comfortable, he likes to be near, but not glued to, his person. He is house trained, walks well on a leash, and learns his routine quickly. He has good recall, knows no, off, and sit … most of the time. Who likes to sit when there is so much of the world to see? He does correct easily while occasionally mischievously trying again while melting you with those baby blues.
Are you in love yet? If so, you will get to enjoy running and playing in the yard, long walks, and snuggling. When you need “me time,” he likes his crate and enjoys chewing on safe, quality chews. He is an eager learner providing opportunities to teach him agility, fetch and other activities while improving his house manners and non-toy identification skills. His only requirement is being with you. Rogan is a great communicator and will let you know when it is time to eat and potty as well as providing wake up and delivery notifications.
Rogan is believed to have lived outside prior to coming to Speak! and while good with dogs and cats, he may at times need correcting from them, or you, if he gets too exuberant. His ideal home will be an active one with a fenced-in yard. His future family will need herding dog experience and be home a good portion of time to help him polish his loveable rebel edges. He will need to be crated while his family is away.
