Rolo is a young, handsome Australian Shepherd who is ready for his forever home. He is about 1 year old, weighs 50 pounds, and he has a soft red tri coat with a docked tail. Rolo is housebroken, crate-trained, and he is just starting to learn his basic obedience commands. Most of the time Rolo walks wonderfully on a leash, however he will pull when he gets nervous. Rolo does well with car rides as long as he is crated.
Rolo is extremely shy when first introduced to both new people and new environments. But get ready, once he feels comfortable with a person, he will stick to them like glue. Rolo is very high Velcro; he loves to be close to his people and will always follow them from room to room. Rolo is also a medium-energy dog who has a nice “off switch”. He enjoys playing in the backyard with his toys, going on walks around the neighborhood, and then relaxing inside while chewing on a nice bone. Rolo gets along nicely with other dogs. He will occasionally play with his dog pals, but is just as happy when he is playing alone. Rolo has not been cat tested.
Rolo is a wonderful dog who needs just a little bit of extra help to make sure that the transition to his new best life is successful. His ideal home is with a family who has the time and patience to help him with his shyness and “worry” in new situations. A calm and fairly quiet household is important. Rolo will bark when he hears loud noises that he can’t see, so he would not be suited for life in an apartment. A fenced yard is required and a confident young dog pal (who will show him the ropes and help him with his confidence) is important. Children over the age of 12 are welcome. If Rolo sounds like he could be your new best friend, apply today! Rolo is fostered in Daytona Beach, FL.
