Rooney is an awesome boy that we are guessing to be a Border Collie/Gordon Setter mix. He is about 18 months old and a fairly large at 65 pounds. True to the heritage of his breeds, he needs plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. He is a little aloof at first meeting but extremely loving and devoted once you are his person. Rooney entertains himself with sticks and balls but would love to have a human friend to play fetch with. He is crate and leash trained, house broken, and rides well in the car. He is okay with most dogs, but does not do well with dominant males. He would also be happy as an only dog. Due to his size, Rooney is not recommended for children under 8 years. If you can provide an active and loving home for a devoted friend, please consider Rooney. We always recommend a slow introduction to other pets in the family,
Rooney is being fostered in the Richmond VA area. If you are interested in more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can apply to adopt below.
