ADOPTED ON 09-23-16 – Rowdy is a little guy with a ton of tender affection and friendship to give. Although no one is sure how his story began, it is for sure he has been through a lot, and he is finally beginning to settle in nicely. Having been in foster care down south for quite a while, he arrived in CT in September to be fostered and put up for adoption. When sweet Rowdy arrived he was scared, timid, a fearful dog. We are sure that he went through something horrific for a little dog because he would cower and shake with every new situation.
Thankfully, his foster family in the north and south knew just want to do to help him adjust and today he is a healthy, happy dog with a giant personality who loves to cuddle and take long walks. He no longer cowers or shakes, but begs for belly rubs instead. He does not hide any longer, he is a proud little guy who seeks out attention from any of his 5 family members, male or female. Rowdy is tastefully gentle and far from what his name implies; he is a perfect gentleman wherever he goes. He is fully house trained and well behaved in the house, his activity level is moderate.
Rowdy sleeps in a crate at night and is quite and very content there. During the day he is gated in the kitchen and does fine although he never forgets to give you his sad face when you leave. Upon return everyone gets a huge greeting; not only does his tail wag uncontrollably, his whole body wags. He is excellent on a leash, while we’re on the subject, it almost seems as if he’s been professionally trained as he walks right by your side and never pulls. Jayne, his foster mom, and her family are working on car rides which seems to stress him out—he is making progress and with practice he will recover.
Rowdy peacefully lives with a cat and doesn’t seem to care too much about her. He has lived with other dogs previously but is not around other dogs up north. He’s a great watchdog; those ears perk up when he hears the critters outside. While in his northern foster home, they have discovered that he gets uneasy when he is held too tight and small children may not understand this. Rowdy would do well with a family that walks outdoors, he enjoys being outside even if it’s just to sit in the sun. He would do well with an older couple or a family with children 12 years and up.
Rowdy has a wise quiet inner peaceful soul that is looking for a dream where his heart will soar with happiness. Are you a family or single person who will delight in walking or jogging with him? He would benefit from having a fenced yard, but not required, that he can run around in, and he would do well if you have another dog buddy for him to romp with but he would be just as happy with a human companion. Rowdy has been imagining and waiting for someone who will love him unconditionally. His basic prerequisite is an adopter who is as devoted and loyal as he will be to you. Won’t you please make room in your heart home for this sweetie today?

- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
- Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
- Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
- Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
- No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
- Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
- Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
- Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
- Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
- THIS IS YOUR JOB, NOT THE DOG
