Roo is a small, slender fellow with long legs, and is likely a min pin mix. He has a smooth, sleek back coat with handsome tan facial markings and tan boots, capped off with adorable flopover ears.
Roo has so much love to give! He is an eager-to-please, cuddly sweetheart. He is high energy outside, and currently has several small dogs to run around and play chase with in the fenced yard, which he absolutely adores doing! Roo will need a fenced yard with someone home a good part of the day, and ideally, another small dog to play with. Roo would be best in an adult household in a detached home, as he barks when meeting new people and seeing things outside. He will, however, stop when told. Roo warms up quickly and soon is ready to shower you with affection. Roo is curious about cats but not aggressive. Still, he'd rather chase them, which, of course, they don't relish; so we are saying no cats.
Inside, he enjoys following you around the house, and more than anything wants to be on your lap, ready for hugs and pets. Roo is crate- and house-trained. He will sit patiently while you put on his halter or get ready to feed him. Roo is very smart, and he knows Sit, Come, Wait, and Stay.
Roo is in excellent health, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm negative.
Roo was surrendered to a local shelter when his family moved.
