Meet Roo

Roo is a high energy dog who would do best going to someone with space for him to run around and with someone who is an experienced dog owner.

I’d imagine he would make a great working dog if someone were to teach him the ropes as he loves to run and is very instinctual.

Roo is an absolute goof-ball and provides endless giggles! He loves to play fetch tho is not very good an bringing things back and is always up for a game of tug (but watch your fingers!).

He plays well will other dogs but can often be too rough and boisterous for the little ones.

He is house trained and knows basic commands (sit, stay, leave it, lie down, shake, on your mat, come).
He walks well on lead but sometimes jumps up and grabs the lead to play tug and it can be difficult to get him to stop.

This ball of energy loves a cuddle and is extremely affectionate and loyal. He is also used to living inside with the family and quickly becomes your second shadow.
