This boy is full of energy. He loves to go outside and run the backyard fence with our Brit. He also has a softer side, where he loves snuggling up for nightly cuddles. He has the run of the house with our pups and is completely trustworthy. He would benefit from having another young Brit or other active breed as a companion. A family with kids would be great too as long as they weren’t real little kids. Cats he pretty much ignores. They are part of the pack. Rookie is crate trained and will get into his crate when told. We don’t hear a sound out of him all night. His recall is very good and loves chasing critters, but one outing with gunfire sent him fleeing the scene. Owner tracked him down miles away. Rookie is a wonderful dog who needs be included in an active family’s day to day life. He loves his people and thrives on human attention. No long distance or sight unseen adoptions for Rookie. We feel it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure that we have a good fit. Rookie is a sweet dog and a wonderful Brit who is anxious for your forever love and companionship. If you would like to considered for this wonderful guy complete the adoption application Rookie was return to ABR. He was adopted 18 months ago by a wonderful family who loved him. They recently took in a human foster child who is terrified of this boy. Rookie was being crated most of the day and began acting out. Escaping the yard and running the neighborhood. His family knew this was so unfair to Rookie and made the hard choice to return him to rescue. Our boy is neutered, is current on all vaccinations, Heart Worm negative and on Heart Worm Preventative. He is also microchipped. Now all he needs is wonderful forever home to call his own
