Meet Rory!

Introducing Rory! He is an 8 month old Papillon/Corgi mix (maybe with some Chihuahua in the mix, but he's not telling!). He currently weighs 9lbs and may gain another pound or two to reach his adult weight. Rory is a very busy, HIGH energy pup that is ALL boy, and will most likely retain this boundless energy into his adult life (hint, hint, great candidate for agility, flyball, or herding kind of guy - he would LOVE a job). He is just learning what a leash and harness are and thinks walks are amazing (although he is still new to walking on a leash and needs continued training of proper leash etiquette). Rory loves to explore and sniff and is always on the go! He is extremely busy and never misses a trick. He enjoys chasing and running with squeaky toys and is learning to fetch very quickly. Rory clearly was never shown any boundaries in his previous homes and can be quite a handful. He can be quite vocal and therefore will not be a candidate to live in apartment/condo settings. Rory will thrive in a home where he can have a consistent, daily routine and opportunities for continued socialization and positive experiences in the real world. Rory has shown playful interest in other similarly sized dogs and a home with another calm, yet playful small or medium sized confident dog or two will be IDEAL in his success at draining his energy and learning "how to dog." Connecticut adopters only! Rory does exhibit resource guarding of his food and toys and will need a home without young children (dog savvy children 12 years and older may be considered). For more information about Rory, please contact Tracey at and PLEASE complete an adoption application found at at ASAP! To answer this question up front, if this posting is still active, YES Rory is still available for adoption.
