Meet Roo (Pittsboro, NC)

Age: 1.5 years old

Breed: Australian Shepherd (male)

Gets along with: people, dogs

Location: Pittsboro, NC

Roo is a shy, sweet Australian Shepherd who is now available for adoption.  He is 1-2 years old, he weighs about 35 pounds, and he has a striking red coat with a flashy white blaze on his chest and white tips on his toes!  Roo is housebroken, crate-trained, and he has mastered some of his basic obedience commands – he is a fast learner!  He walks very nicely on leash, a perfect gentleman, and he is a great passenger in the car.

Roo is shy and submissive when he first meets a new person, but that hesitation quickly fades and he becomes a total love bug!  And he is such a character!  Every morning he welcomes his foster family downstairs with a “roo roo roo”, a quick zoom around the kitchen, and then its off to the backyard for potty time.  Roo gets along great with the other dogs in his foster family.  He is not a super playful, dog-wrestling kind of guy, but he enjoys running with his dog buddies and playing chase games.  When he is not running with his dog pals, Roo loves riding in the car (he likes to go to the office!), hanging out in the house with his foster family, playing with his toys, chewing on antlers and horns, and quietly watching everything around him.  He has only been exposed to cats from a distance so we do not know how he would react to sharing his home with one.

The ideal family for Roo is loving, easy-going, and ready to welcome a very sweet, kind-of-shy little guy into their lives.  Roo has not been exposed to much in his young life, but this fast learner is catching on quickly and he loves to be part of a family!  A fenced yard is required, a friendly, confident dog pal or two would be fabulous, and any children in the home should be at least 12 years old.  Roo is as sweet as can be and we know that there is a great family out there for this great young dog and if you would like to review our adoption process and complete an application please visit the link below. Roo is fostered in Pittsboro, NC.

Roo's adoption donation is $300.
